Cerb, first, welcome to FLife!
If I were you, and speaking to the seller as a potential buyer, I wouldn't consider this car a Ferrari any longer; it's now only a Pininfarina body/chassis, with a hodge podge of different parts.
I'm a big believer in this Enzo quote: "I don't sell cars; I sell engines. The cars I throw in for free since something has to hold the engines in." So, there you have it from Enzo himself. The value of a Ferrari is in the engine.
So IMHO, its value of this car is probably somewhere between a hotrod and a kitcar. If I were on the buyer's side of the fence, and without knowing anything more about the condition, I wouldn't go into it for more than $10K to $20K, but that's only what it's worth to "this" potential buyer, YMMV.
I don't know the availability of the old Ferrari powertrains, but I'd think they're highly prized for just the type of conversions you mentioned.
Good luck, and if you do get into it, it would be great if you'd start a project thread here!

High mileage, low compression, and missing on a few cylinders.....just like my cars.
