Is this '67 to 1994 5.0 swap a good deal?

Hello everyone I'm about to buy a classic Mustang soon. I've been doing reseach on them for a while and came across some info on a 1967 with a 1994 5.0 motor and T5 tranny in it with manual transmission. I will say that the car is just within my price range, and wondering how these swaps hold value as far as when I might want to re-sell it. Here is the info, thanks in advance

1967 Ford Mustang with a 1994 5.0 swap.
5-speed T5 manual transmission, 9-inch rear end conversion.
Body is in straight, clean condition.
Engine has less than 50k miles and always maintained.
Engine is .40 overbore, windsor block, trickflow stage 1 cam, ford explorer head swap,
cobra injectors, adjustable fuel pressure regulator, full MSD ignition(6AL box, coils, wires)
5.0 HO intake manifold, upgraded 70mm throttle body, centerforce clutch, B&M short shifter.
Eagle Alloy wheels included, low-ball me and I'm taking them off the car.
Four row aluminum radiator, car always runs cool...
Exhaust is JBA headers and 2.5 inch custom flowmaster exhaust with H-pipe
Runs like a champ and makes a lot of power, over 20k invested, my loss is your gain!
Working head unit with aux cable, sounds great!
The bad; Sticky clutch cable, primer driver side fender, primer driver side quarter panel, and a few cracks in the paint.
Vehicle is SMOG Exempt, has 2014 tags, can be renewed for serious buyers

It sounds like a nice car, depending on the price. In my opinion though, if you are wondering/worrying about value down the road, the pass on this car, it will not bring a 6 figure Barrett-Jackson price.

As long as everything was done properly, I don't see any issue with what is done. EFI and an OD 5 speed= win in my opinion.

Ok, yea I won't be looking for 6 figures but I may have to put a down payment for a house in about 3 years. So he's got it listed for 8. Interior is good just needs 2 front seats. Exterior is nice and straight no dents, just has one fender primered. Wheels and tires are great. SO if I paint it and get new seats I'm wondering if I will be able to get at least 15 for it, considering other Mustangs in same condition are going for approx that much, or does the swapped engine de-value the car?

The swapped engine doesn't really devalue the car, but getting into paint and body can be a can of worms. Be very careful before you buy. Because it doesn't take much for "painting a fender and quarter" to turn into "I spent $12K at the body shop"

You still want piece of mind that the body is in good shape. ALso, plasti-dip is not a long lasting solution, so it will require periodic removal and resprays.

$8k for a car with no seats, which usually means you can't drive it prior to buying is kinda iffy.

Also, why is the car painted, except for that fender? Was it wrecked? You should post up some pictures, there may be some information hiding in them that can help you negotiate.
