In terms of paintwork if you don't wanna go the whole nine yards I'd just wash, clay, glaze, and wax.. If you use the right stuff it should come out very nice. Just use whatever wax you have, if you're selling the car I don't know if you want to invest in a good wax. Up to you! My favorite glaze is Detail Shoppe's Wet Glaze 2.0. A nice inexpensive wax is Meguiars Ultimate. And you can find clay bars anywhere.

For the rest of the car: I'd use "Bon Ami" for the exhaust tips, it works wonders for me. 303 Aerospace is great for everything in your interior. For the engine bay just wrap up your intake & what not, spray it down and wash it. Also, I'd do some work on your trim, just get your favorite trim restorer. My favorite is Mother's. Pretty simple man, best of luck!
