help with valuation

Post by jakethepeg »

here is another south african 1964 MK1 850 which I helped save from the scrapheap. All original panels, never welded except battery box, completely stripped and painted inside and out. Brakes done, `original engine refreshed and runs very well. This is in the UK now, awaiting registration. What is a reasonable price to ask in todays fevered market

Having spent 2000 ,pounds shipping it to the uk, plus local costs, I am looking for the current UK value. All my others have found good homes, nobody in SA will pay anywhere near the real value for classic cars. I always advertise them locally first, but even then overseas buyers jump on them! And i have saved some real basket cases as well :D

And even in South Africa, Mk1s are becoming very rare, still a lot of Mk3s and clubmans though.

Landed in the UK, I'd guess £10 - £12,000 maybe a little more to the right person.

I would say £8,000-£10,000. It looks a lot better than some of the stuff that is coming from SA.

Stu has a closer eye on prices than I do. He is probably closer to the mark than I. Despite me being one :lol:

When selling in the UK it may also be worth referring potential buyers to the excellent book 'A South African Mini Story' by Ryno Verster. Unfortunately it is currently out of print but it would alert UK buyers to the unique SA history and features which some in ignorance, may believe are non-original and therefore lower the value or even plan to remove them...when the opposite is true!
