Well, the market will judge things best. If you lower the price to that level, I suggest taking some more flattering photos and listing it in Hemmings. The low VIN might also help get it featured on Bringatrailer (e-mail directly -- don't send a link to the for-sale post).

Also, if you go for another round of classified ads, I suggest dropping the boilerplate dealer stuff (e.g. "Fuel type: Gas"). Anyone shopping for this sort of car is more interested in condition, maintenance and provenance. To be honest, the fact that it's being sold by a dealer is already a bit of a red flag. Your ad needs to overcome that stigma, not reinforce it.
