I paid 550 for a 37000 mile  VGC car 18 months ago  solid as a rock  with just a touch of rust on 1 wing top (spare wing included) and a few scratches   found on Ebay  does that help

I paid 770 for my car just over a year ago, 3 owners, 81k on the clock, but the condition really sold it to me - only rust was a light smattering on the front valance, everything else was excellent. I think the brown put a lot of people off, but for some reason it was just what I was after  :D

It comes down to whatever someone will pay I suppose.

We paid 750 for Courgie with 24,000 miles on the clock back in 2005.

She now has 37,000 miles on the clock and an agreed value with Lancaster Insurance @ 1,550  :o

I paid 50 for my chevette. 2 owners from new, 58k. Needed new headlights, new sill, steering rack and boots, brake pads, battery, points, plugs and leads before it would run properly and pass the mot.

Yep Glad I bought mine errrr . . 15 months ago (saloon) 3 months ago (estate) 6 weeks ago (red hatch) and a week ago (HSR Rep)  ;D ;D ;D

The reality will always be that something is worth what someone is prepared to pay, you could say condition and spec is key, I sold my standard 3 door hatch with Group 4 Kit and Superlites 2 months ago for 2k, I bought the rust hunt hatch for a couple of hundred quid but I've so far used 4 square feet of steel on it, but it did come with race seats, alloys, HS Front Bumper, Black Magic rear bumper, side skirts, boot spoiler, big valve head, cam, cd175 carb, new shox and a full ashley system. My estate cost me 285 but so far I've spent the same again on parts (and then some). The saloon was cheap for an incredibly genuine car, but I've still replaced the exhaust, clutch, brake hoses, calipers, cylinders, battery and all the usual service parts and the HSR Rep was cheap for a car with serious spec but does need bodywork, a little welding and resprayed! I picked one up for free last year as well . .  ;D ;D ;D ;D
