PRICE WATCH

Con­cours £6000-6500 Ex­cel­lent £5500-6000 Us­able £2500-3500 Project £450-600

The FSOC’s John Porter com­ments: ‘There’s lit­tle dif­fer­ence in val­ues be­tween the var­i­ous mod­els, apart from the Pre­fects, which are typ­i­cally worth slightly more than the other de­riv­a­tives. £450 buys a project car, while some­thing us­able can be picked up for £2500-3000 or so. Some­thing re­ally nice is a lit­tle over £3000 while the best cars will fetch £5500. The older mod­els, such as the E04A and E93A, are quite scarce now; most of the cars for sale are 103Es but there’s a buyer for any model in any con­di­tion if the price is right. Buy­ers will pay a pre­mium for a re­ally nice car but be pre­pared to travel if you want a bar­gain. When cars come up for sale in some­where re­mote they tend to be rel­a­tively cheap in a bid to tempt buy­ers to travel.’
