PRICE WATCH

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling -

Paul Wil­liams of the Rover Sports Reg­is­ter com­ments: ‘There are quite a few re­ally nice 600s around and de­mand isn’t that strong, so now is a good time to buy be­cause val­ues are low. Just £250 buys some­thing that’s us­able al­though you need to dou­ble this bud­get to buy some­thing nice. Even some­thing with show po­ten­tial needn’t cost more than £1000, al­though some ven­dors ask for more in the hope that they’ll get it. Diesels are rare and unloved as they’re rat­tly and not very nice to use, but they do re­turn over 40mpg; the petrol en­gines knock this down to more like 30mpg. The low val­ues mean no­body is restor­ing project cars but some 600s are be­ing scrapped be­cause of very small faults that can be eas­ily and cheaply fixed on a DIY ba­sis.’
