There is a Tiger which is supposed to be real but has the following "changes".

I wonder if any of these change the value of the car?

Brand New 16x7 Panasport Racing wheels (4 original 13 Minilites w/Yokahamas included)
Brand New Yokohama ES100 205/45 radials on the front, 245/45s on the rear
Upgraded, Powerful, Ford 289 V8 Engine (Originally equipped with lesser HP 260)
Upgraded, Ford C4 3-speed Automatic Transmission (Optional top loader 4-speed available)
Upgraded Ford 9 Positraction rear-end (Takes up to 1000 HP!)
Upgraded Koni Heavy Duty Shocks
New Upgraded Hi Performance dual exhaust system
New Upgraded Holley 4-Barrel Carburetor
New Upgraded Edelbrock Performer Series Manifold
New Roll Bar
New, Solid Mahogany, Grant GT Steering Wheel. (Original wheel included)
New door handles, body trim & sparkling chrome throughout the engine bay

I think in general it affects the price negatively, most expensive Tigers I have seen are pretty close to stock but I have seen a few highly modified cars go for outrageous prices. It's a prety nice looking car though, biggest problem I have is seeing an automatic transmission in the car...brings a tear to my eye.

I cannot imagine selling mine, so I guess I don't care what my extensive mods do to the car's value. OTOH, I've tried to keep all changes reversible. When I die, the next owner can reinstall the 260, the 4-speed and even the rear drum brakes, as I've kept all the old parts.

Another anti-slushbox vote here, too. Ugh.

It would be nice to have the traction of 245-section tires, I admit.

I agree with Tiger.I'll never sell the 2 cars I have left.I did sell my 66 Tiger as it needed a bit more attention and driving than it was getting.It was stock except for the 5 speed which there are quite a few of now.However in regards to the car in question. An automatic would decrease the value.The rest would depend on the buyers fancy.The Lister clone has very little stock left and I love it as it is.
