The ship price, to my very limited knowledge, is linked to the hull cost in the goods package. If you follow the advice above and get a list of the flyable ship "nick names" and search in the goods.ini you will find the the ship is linked to a hull package. This lists all of the items equipped as standard when the ship is bought including generator, shield, engine, scanner and of course, the ship itself...the hull.
Once you have found the hull name which is linked to the ship nickname* (about 4 or 5 lines of code), stay in the goods.ini and search below for that hull package and in it will be a hull cost. The hull cost is a lot less than the actual sale price for the ship as it is the cost of the ship without mounted items such as scanner and engine etc in the package. However, increasing the hull cost increases the ship price by that value.
Hull price 1.5 mill
In game purchase price 3 mill
That means the mounted items cost 1.5 mill
Increasing hull price to 2 mill increases your purchase price to 3.5 mill.
Again, double chech this as I am a self professed twit.
*Of course, just do a CtrlL & F and paste the nickname instead of scrolling throught each package.
