I agree with Midas mk1. 2K is baseline price for a good solid mini. This is worth more than that.

Good plan, that way you will ultimately get what it's realistically worth. Do us all a favour though and report back with what you actually get for it. We can all bang on here about what we think somethings currently worth, but unless we get feedback as to what things actually sell for, we're never going to know if we are "notoriously overvaluing" things or not!!

eBay completed listings is handy for that

http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/Classic-Cars-/29751/i.html?_from=R40&_nkw=mini&_in_kw=1&_ex_kw=&_sacat=29751&_okw=&_oexkw=&_adv=1&LH_Complete=1&_udlo=&_udhi=&_samilow=&_samihi=&_sadis=200&_fpos=&LH_SALE_CURRENCY=0&_sop=12&_dmd=1&_ipg=50

Green are sold, red unsold

Here's a few good examples

Yes eBay completed listings is generally what I base my valuations on, I just meant that it would be helpful to know generally what people actually end up getting for their cars, having been given valuations for them here first.

But that 76' example you've shown really is an example of how the market is at the moment and how low classic mini selling prices really are right now. It's difficult to believe that a tidy 70's mini 1000 like with t&t is really only making £2k.

As we all know with ebay a large percentage of them do not sell for the final bidding price.
You can only base things on completed sales.

I value the car at 2k also

@0138dave.

Sorry if my valuation offended you. As it appears to have gotten under the skin of a few other TMF members, lets hope you're a bit more mature! I'm sure you are.

It was a honest valuation based on what the cars are selling for in modified condition and standard condition. As you say the bonnet wrap has been removed and this will increase value, removing the stickers and the roof wrap will probably also help to get you a sale quicker. Some legal number plates as well.

Little things make all the difference, good luck with the sale.

Well at least the realistic quotes that were given were pretty much on the money. At least it did not go for less than that.

Yes thanks for letting us know what you actually got for it, strange that TMF's "notorious undervaluations" were actually quite accurate in this case though!
