value of 3.5V8 and LT85 transmission?

Hello All,
I am considering doing a swap on engine and transmission in my 1988 110. If so, I will likely be selling my existing 3.5V8 and LT85 transmission. The only thing I know of that is a problem is that the throwout bearing in the transmission needs replacing. Otherwise everything currently works fine. The LT85 is as expected, loud in 3rd and 5th and quiet as a (rover) mouse in 4th.

I don't have a price yet as I have not started the work - really just trying to find out if this is of interest to anyone out there. If there is, will help me understand if I should go ahead and do the repairs. I have no idea how to price these parts as I have never seen either for sale.

Any advice would be appreciated.

FYI - would be putting in a 3.9V8 with performance cam and a ZF auto. I anticipate that this would make the truck run a lot like my classic which would be a huge upgrade for my family (I.E. my wife).
