Default 1985 2.3 EFI ranger with manual transmission

Hey all, I will be moving in the coming months and need to part ways with my project. Truck currently turns over and fires momentarily with starting fluid sprayed in the intake.

List of new parts:
High pressure inline fuel pump
Low pressure in tank fuel pump
Gas tank
Fuel pressure regulator
Starter solenoid
Spark plugs
Spark plug wires
Distributor cap
Distributor rotor
Remanufactured Computer (I also have a junkyard computer for an 85 2.3 with a manual trans and the original computer)
Ignition switch
Full size chevy drop shackles (that lift the rear of the ranger)

Junkyard Parts/Not new parts
Shifter assembly (feels incredible, original's bushing was shot)
Ford Sport Trac wheels (tires are old) - I also have the original steel wheels that I paint matched to the darker red in the center caps, which I also have
Bypassed inertia switch

Truck body and interior
Grinded down the surface rust on the floorboards and sprayed the clean metal with bedliner. Driver side floorboard was horrendously replaced at some point but it works.
Reupholstered the door panels with a dark blue, red, and green plaid print. Has since faded in the sun, not sure if there is a way to restore color.
Did moderate cleaning of frame when bed was off for fuel pump and tank replacement

I absolutely love these original rangers and deep down have held on to it for as long as I have out of concern the next owner would lose interest and junk it. I figured this is the best venue to finding it a home and not a place in the local junkyard.

I am probably forgetting work I have done on it, I have a good bit of receipts for parts. I also have a substantial amount of extra parts laying around that I will happily throw in.

I will most likely be editing this post as I go about my day and remember stuff that I forgot to include.

Truck comes with a bill of sale only. Asking $750. I know we don't get out what we put in, but I'm just guessing as to what a fair price would be with all the new parts. I have a video of it turning over, I'm just not sure how to attach it.

Edit: I forgot to mention where I am. Vehicle is available for pick up in Suwanee Georgia.

Yup! I attached some pictures of the computer itself and the box it came in. I can't recall the name of the company but I can look around online and see if any names jump out at me.
