85 cabriolet SE, advice required

Recommended Posts

Hello all, I have (stored in a barn) a December 1985 Cabriolet SE, it is the all white version, advertised as the hoping for a white Christmas model as pictured. Approx 50,000 miles from new, rust free. The original soft top needs to be replaced as it has a couple of splits. The sun has also cracked the top of the dash board behind the steering wheel. I am debating as to whether to sell the car in its current state, or to repair the afore mentioned items and then put the car on the market. My request at this stage is for some guidance from club members as to the cars value in its current condition, and what it may be worth should the repairs be carried out.

Thanks.

MDB

I would sell it as it is, if it’s original sell it with its original faults. 

As to it’s value , could try £8,000.00  Ono , if it does not sell then drop price.

Could get a classic car company to make you an offer, they may offer a good price because bottom dollar they will ask £12 ,000 plus when work done and offered for sale.

good luck.
