Using the following two as a guide... ( rough guide )

and

As a private sale I would rate yours towards the upper end of the range, 1500 to 2k, the main benefit with yours is the mileage and the originality of the interior ( having the tags on the seats is a good sign of condition ), but the ravages of time are starting to show on the body work, and may present any future owner with a heft bodywork bill in the next year or so.

I would say yours is worth more than that, it looks very nice, well cared for and totally original which always helps.

I'd have thought that would easily make £2200? Looks a really nice original little car, interior looks spotless.

Good colour, nice condition and its a RSP, May even hit £2500 to the right buyer.

If you have all the relevant documentation too, you'd get £2,500 easily.

Quite a tidy example you have there!! :thumbsup: I pretty much agree with what has already been said, somewhere around the £2k - £2.5k mark (assuming it has a full MOT). I really can't see it falling into the £14k bracket though I'm afraid.... not for a fair few years yet any way!! :(

I think you might even get more than 2.5k for it to be honest :)

Thanks for all you replies. It seems it's not worth quite as much as I thought so glad to get a realistic figure before advertising it.

I knew it wasn't a £14K example, that one was basically factory fresh with about 200 miles on the clock!

@ANON The car has had 3 previous owners, and the 2nd owner purchased the car 2nd hand from the John Cooper Garage.

£2.5k all day long as it is, might take a few weeks to sell though. with the bodywork sorted, wouldn't cost much, and if you aren't in a rush to sell it could easily do £3.5k, if not a touch more.

I considered both these RSPs in the eBay links below, but only viewed the Green one with the S pack. He is as good as the advert suggests other than having some rust on both valances. I paid a bit less that £5000 which I felt was a fair price but by the time I had him thoroughly serviced (had not been on the road since 1998) it was nearer £5,500. However, he is now driving like a dream and noticeably quicker than our standard red RSP. Black RSPs are the rarest (and I think the most desirable) and would have preferred a black one but had to choose between black or the S pack, and went for the S.

Have you been in touch with Roger Hunt from the RSP Register, (if you are not on the register already)? He could also help you with valuing and I would let him know you’re planning to sell as people do contact him if they are looking to purchase an RSP. Link to the RSP register below. Good luck with the sale.
