I purchased a none running, rust bucket, 53 Jubilee last year with some busted gears in the transmission the previous owner didn't tell me about. I took it completely apart, fixed the transmission, rebuilt the engine, replaced clutch and many other parts and did a fair paint job.
If I were to sell it (not that it is for sale) I would have to have a minimum of $4500. I doubt I would find a buyer to pay that much but that is fine because I have a fine ventage 1953 Ford Jubilee to look at and use when I wish.
Hope this helps and good luck with the sale. Rick H. Ga.
