Unhappy Hydro locked motor?

well ive had a bit of bad luck recently and my 07 SI got flooded. the motor will not turn over, and i cannot get to the spark plugs myself due to my strut bar. I am planning on just selling the car as is and was wondering about what i could expect to get for it, if anyone could help give me an idea i would really appreciate it. or if anyone has a simple way i could get it running again that would be awesome!! there is a clicking sound when i turn the key and electricals seem to be working fine. i am by no means a mechanic so it could be somthing stupid like just needing a new battery. but since the water was over the hood of the car im guessing its probably hydrolocked. Thanks in advance for any advice, its much appreciated.

2007 Black Civic SI coupe
114k miles
lowered(idk the suspension used as it was lowered before i bought it)
cold air intake
exhaust
NRG strut bar

So your car was flooded and/or involved in a flood?

If you have comprehensive coverage on your insurance I would recommend putting in a claim.
