Personally I think all Marlins are under valued but regrettably that seems to be the case. I would keep it, drive it at every opportunity and enjoy the fruit of your labours. I'm on my fifth Marlin, having deviated a few times, but keep coming back to the marque. Think of the memory's it holds!!
I would tend to agree with Alan. Sportsters should be worth a lot more but it's a very niche market. It's not a tourer and it's not a seven. Nor is it a classic so doesn't appeal to those buyers. Realistically you should be getting about 12k tops. Your mpowered version narrows the market even more.
I'd wait until the pandemic is over before advertising it and then take it to a few shows to gauge interest.
Sorry if that is not what you wanted to hear.
