I thought the car and the background in the Ebay photos looked familiar, and when I checked I found it was this car from the forum:

It looks like a stunning car in the photos.

Andrew.

:agree: Nice car and good price.

Cars that seem reasonably priced, are not selling that quickly :?

This is now on bids so might be a good indication of the current market? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ford-Capri-2 ... 100623.m-1

I think part of that is because of the price increase we have seen over the last few years... When I was looking many moons ago this sort of car was 9-10k, and gorgeous as these cars are, I still wouldn't pay anymore than that... inflation makes the cars 'worth more' but the money in my pocket is still worth the same! :lol:

My insurance is up for renewal and I have to put in an agreed value form. I'd say prices are the same if not a little lower than last year judging by what I've read here and the price of this one https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ford-Capri-2-8i/323310067886?_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIM.MBE%26ao%3D2%26asc%3D49129%26meid%3Dad74feaf0dea4a139bde314156ad9728%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D12%26sd%3D123213641021%26itm%3D323310067886&_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851.
The Hagerty valuation tool would put mine at £16100 which is an increase on last year, however I'm not sure this is realistic.
Not in the same league I know, but last year I struggled to buy a Golf GTI mk2 for what I considered a reasonable price. Then this year I struggled to sell it.
I think the Classic car market has peaked and things will settle down now, hopefully providing some nice reasonably priced cars that the collectors will start to unload and real enthusiasts can own and use :D

Prices have definitely slowed down of late, I can't see prices coming down that much just leveling out maybe....
Maybe a good time to buy or make a offer :)

:agree: Neil,
If you have paid big money for a classic car this year, you could well be waiting a long time to get your money back.... :?

Wait for the winter months when some people lose interest in owning a classic car. Hopefully we may start to see cheaper spares prices as the value of the cars reduce and people don't take on unrealistic projects.

Fingers crossed! Never a bad thing to see prices come down unless you buy for investment in my eyes :)

Funny as I have just been on Doctor Brooklands site and he has some very nice capris on there even a red 2.8i with only 52000miles And the advert now says offers . Also a few 280s which normally go quick so I wonder if the prices are dropping .

http://www.brooklands280.com/home.html

Original parts are still making there money . What will be interesting and I think we have said this before that scraping a Capri for parts could work out more then selling the Capri .

Some :ford: Hot Hatches have been for sale for several weeks with around a £1000 taken off the asking prices within that time.
Even with the lower asking price they are still £2/3000 overpriced imo!

The £20K 280 seems reasonably priced, in my opinion. I'm not keen on the green 2.8 though.

The 280 has mileage discrepancy, but engine was rebuilt when car was restored, so not really a big issue imo.

Don't like the 2.8 in green either :?

Funny as green is a unlucky colour, and I am sure it’s todo with racing ? But with you both I don’t think the green goes well with the Capri but I would say that as I love my greys & silver Marie always tells me off when we pick the colour of or cars .

Perhaps you'd prefer the Coyote if a green 2.8 is not your cuppa tea Andrew :D Buy it in October and get 4k off.

Hi Neil,
The GWG Capri does sound awesome, but it looks too understated for my tastes. :D
Oh, and it's out of my price range, even with the generous discount......

The silver 54k mile 2.8i ended at £17600 reserve not met!

Couldn't have been too far off :?

I found this ad on pistonheads; they want a fiver shy of £22k;-

https://www.pistonheads.com/classifieds ... 81/8430829

Following on from previous replies concerning stripes...although correct on this,I hate it when they’re cut off at the end of the front wings, rather than tuck round and squared off around the wing to the headlights.
...especially when in some adverts they say it’s all original, like a blue one I posted some time ago!

It's been at that price for months :shock:

I was hoping it would sell on the bidding but the reserve must have been £18K plus......I think £17600 was a realistic bid at the current time, but many dealers/sellers can't let go of previous prices :roll: Prices have to fall or even out at some time, so sell it and move on!!

Obviously, with the dealers it depends on how much money the dealers have tied up in the car - although I suspect some of the cars we've seen come up for sale have been bought at a reasonable price and the sellers are holding out for maximum profit.

:agree: 100% Andrew.
They probably paid less than £17600 for it which must be around a year ago now.

Most dealers love the profit not the cars :spank:

I agree some of the dealers are cheeky with their prices and this lovely Ghia is no exception.

Bought from Anglia auctions for £9540 it was on ebay 3 days after the sale.

This said, when moaning about the mark-ups (which are greedy with some dealers) you have to remember that he will have to warranty the 42 year old car for at least 3 months and prepare it and make sure it is safe to go on the road. Furthermore many dealers have to stock their businesses partly with money borrowed on overdraft, advertise the vehicle often for quite a long time (advertising can be bloody expensive)and here's the killer they have to pay VAT on their mark up (gross profit) which with this car would be around £800. Add in the cost of Motor Trade premises, insurance, crappy part exchanges etc and the gloss goes a bit off their huge profits.
