MM sale prices

Postby chrishhug@gmail.com » Sat Jun 26, 2021 6:52 am

I am out of touch with prices and aim to sell a 1951 Morris. Can someone advice on current prices, please, e.g. ones in good condition.

Spot on.
The 'current price' is whatever someone is willing to pay, no matter what condition it is in.
If it meets the individual's needs, they will buy it at a price that meets their expectations and finances.

Hi,
I paid £8K for Elsie May, my 1955 Split Screen Traveller, this year.
She is in what I would describe as good condition with nice paintwork but will be an ongoing (and hopefully roadgoing :wink: ) restoration.
Sorry but, to be honest, the top I'd pay is £10K and for that I wouldn't be expecting to have to replace the wood anytime soon.
For a saloon model (2 door or 4 door) I would expect to pay slightly less than a Traveller for a really good one.
Split screen tourers / convertibles might cost more and vans are like hens teeth.
But with all Morris Minors, whatever their condition, you need to stay within the realms of reality, if you want it to sell and not just sit around forever.
Traders of course can afford to have things sat around, gathering dust, until prices catch up with what they are demanding, or until someone with more money than sense comes along........
If you are a private seller I'd advise you to ask a sensible price and be prepared to negotiate.
Best wishes,
Mike.

Yikes I paid C$635 (about £370) for my 1951 early 4 door in 2016… (and another C$200 for delivery)

You have to watch UK prices these days or you will be ripped off.
Obvious advise I know but give them a good look round and test drive before you part with any cash.
Mind you I'll only look at a vehicle that I consider to be priced within the realms of reality.
Some people are happy to ask silly money and then sit on the vehicle in question forever :roll:
The common name for it is 'greed'.
Best wishes,
Mike.
