You should get off your ass and build it already. 10 years is nothing, I've held on to my 69 Charger r/t se now for 33, and still haven't restored it yet...getting there but it aint there yet. I'll spend another 10k on it rebuilding it, and realistically can only expect 30-40k for it when finished (its non matching numbers also, but has correct date coded block/tranny from another 69 RT Charger. I've been slowly working on mine for the last 3 years, i figure another two and i should get it roadworthy again. At least when mine's done, its a real R/T SE which does count a bit. With a 73 E body, it'd have to be an RT and to get the high prices you're talking about it'd need the correct motor, and be restored completely, not just renewed. And the resto would probably cost more than the car will sell for.
Unfortunately, a 73 didn't have a six pack option originally. You'd get more by selling the six pack seperately to the right party, and buying a 340 to put into it instead.
