What's it worth?

Hi all!
I have a customer with a 95 NAS D90 SW, Arles Blue, approximately 125k on the driveline. The body has character marks, some bubbly door paint, fairly typical for a non-garage kept farmer's friend. Interior is, well, work-hardened.
About 6k miles ago, I fitted a galvie chassis, suspension bushings, brake hydraulics and friction, all stainless hoses and pipes, millions of pieces of stainless hardware, NRP exhaust and so much more.
Runs and drives great. She's made a number of trips to Maine from Maryland since this work was performed, and she was curious about how the market would value this car in consideration of the replacements, improvements, and repairs.
I guess the question would be what is this car worth as is with a tired interior and reasonable paint, but great bones?

galvy chassis can add ~$8k in value to some, more or less to others. Without more pics, she's probably in the $30k range, assuming the truck was worth in the low $20s before the chassis swap, private-to-private. You tend to describe them more truthfully/harshly than most others though, so maybe a little more if the condition is average overall, considering arles is a fairly desirable color, the miles aren't crazy high, and it has a galvy chassis.

That is an accurate statement. There's no hyperbole in Trevor's descriptions.
