What is she worth?

Postby Mr B » Tue Apr 18, 2017 8:57 pm

Hi all,

I'm thinking of parting with my Capri, but not sure of how much I should be asking for her, all opinions/advice welcome, here is her spec:

1.6 Calypso shell condition/paint 80 out of 100
No rubber bar's had S decals fitted
2.8 front suspension
Lovely 3 litre V6 engine and excellent Type 5 box
Excellent oil pressure
New V62 Kent camshaft
Burton stage 2 cylinder heads
Rebuilt Holley 390 carburetor and appropriate manifold
Bosch dizzy
Almost new exhaust manifolds
Sportex twin system - sounds menacing
New clutch
High torque starter motor
Standard 3 litre rear axle with no issue's at all
New rear shoe's and cylinders
New track control arm's
Recaro interior, no rear seats though, previous owner removed them for a sound system
1 years MOT
Badly cracked dash, needs replacing :cry:

So what does everyone think?

Would be worth more if it was factory stock unfortunately, I'm sure I'll be corrected if I'm wrong.

Those are some nice mods but it limits the type of buyer who would go for that stuff, like i said it would appeal to more if it was standard.

As is, maybe 4500 to 5000/5500.
Just my uneducated opinion.

Hi Arya

Thanks mate, totally agree with you, it is a shame she is not an original though, she really is a lovely car and I'm only thinking of parting with her to fund another project, probably get more money breaking her but I love these cars way to much to do that to her and she deserves to go to a good home

Admirable you don't want to break it, i always cringe when i see a perfectly good car die like that. I understand if it's unsalvageable breaking makes sense in that case but otherwise it's just a waste imo.
I'm sure someone will love to own your car, if I had the money i certainly would with those mods, being a Calypso too they are quite rare i think?
Good luck! Maybe show us a picture?

Hmmm, very very nice! That literally looks like a car designed specifically for my tastes! Man I wish I was a rich arsehole! Lol.
