What you guys thinks it's worth

#1 Post by JOHNDQ » Sat Jun 22, 2019 12:02 pm

I've seen this for sale on eBay....

https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre ... 3891381111

I'm bidding on it at the moment but I was wondering what you guys would think the approximate value it's worth. I know it's a bit difficult because it's been messed about with and what not but I figured you guys would be best to ask basically my plan is because it's already MSA logbooked etc I would get rid of my shell and use that one since it's all ready to go and it's eligible for the stock hatch race series.

Its a battered, ragged and no doubt ready to fall apart.

£1500 is all i'd go.

Hang on...

Have you seen the list of spares that come with it?

Complete spare engine and gearbox, and 25 15" wheels?? If there's are a few serviceable sets of 4 or 5 out of that 25, they could be worth say £50 a set (to be fully stripped and refurbed). Could be worth a few hundred if you can sell them.

Based on the location and the shill bidding that failed, (re-listed) i'd avoid like the plague.
The 25X (2001 ROVER 25 1.4 Impression S, fate TBD)
The CX8 (1997 ROVER Cabriolet 1.6 K-Series, Resto Project)
The 25XD (2004 ROVER 25 2.0TD, Track Car ?)
The Parts Bin (2001 ROVER 25 1.6 S)
The ASTRA-DX (2012 VAUXHALL ASTRA 1.7CDTi, Daily Eco Driver)

Yes why is he allowed to relist it and not offer it to the next bidder with feedback?

It may well be worth more than it reached as it's a new shell, where did he get a new shell from? :S

It's not worth it to me for that money because at around £2000 that's what it will cost for the roll cage into mine and at least I know that my shell is sound

Better the devil you know!

I see that it's been relisted because the bidding didn't reach the reserve.

It's a private auction this time & reached £1k already!

Very true plus at least I know what's been done. Unless I mis read the original add I didn't notice it say was originally a Dunlop car re-shelled. But to me that would make it not a Dunlop car anyway :laughing2 not that matters for what I want
