How can I dispose of my partially-restored Austin Healey?

I have a partially restored 1956 Austin Healey BN2 but age and arthritis prevent me from completing the job. How should I best dispose of it? The car runs, is complete with all original parts and the replacement panels necessary for completion.

I would first make contact with the club: www.austinhealeyclub.com but if you have no joy there, consign it to www.historics.co.uk which is a classic car auction held every three months at Brooklands Museum. A similar restored 1956 BN2 to ‘M’ spec (but not original) is already entered in its September auction, estimated at £28,000 to £35,000.
