Correct price for a concour car

Postby princess090967 » Sun Dec 30, 2012 10:40 am

Dear friends, I would like to know what is the correct price for a properly restored car (at concours level) Morris Minor Traveller series III or, better series II or firs series III with 948 engine because I am looking for. I like a lot Charles Wares cars but they are too expensive for me. Then, I would like a car with more original items (not reproduction but Nos BMC parts or BMC old parts restored). If you have the patience to look what I would like, please see my sprite in "for sale car" in this site or my mini 59 in mini register site.

Hello Max,

the sky's the limit for a Concours winning car, if you can find one for sale? More than a commercially available restored car such as Ware's for example.

I am confused and I can't give a value at a Morris Minor Traveller as I would like because if I add to the purchase price of a professional restorers (I read 18.000 Lst) the cost of all items that I would change because they are non original the price goes up dramatically and we can arrive easily at 21.000 - 23.000 Lst. that I think to much for this cars.
In this case I think that my cars, where 90% of bolts are marked "Wiley " and they were sunblested with glass microsheres and chromed to mantain originality, can't have a value, but I don't think so.
