    Value of a fiesta? any ideas please?

    My nan wants to sell her car but I havent got a clue how much to ask for it.
    Its a Ford Fiesta 1.1 L reg (93)
    It has done 23,910 miles!
    It has no rust and is in excellent condition with a brand new MOT. The garage said its like it just came out of the showroom!
    Hubbie unfortunately didnt remember to ask them how much they think it is worth.
    So anyone got any ideas on how much its worth?
    I have searched online but its too old for the car price guides
    Any help much appreciated

    A few hundred £ if that ..... great mileage though but it's still 16 years old.

    Agreed. Only real value is through the scrappage scheme.

    Thanks for the advice guys

    Around £300, but at 16yrs old, worth what someone is willing to pay.

    How much are you thinking and i'll tell you if it's a realistic price

    Oh come on you must have some idea. If it's as you say then i'd say min £500. I've sold complete ******** with more welding than the QE2 for £350 :lol:

    You could ask on Fiestaclub GB.

    The best place to sell it is at a motor auction, there are quite a few dealers that really love this type of car, very hard to find.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see it make over a grand at the right auction.;-)

    It is as I said as it has been garaged for yrs and was only used to go 3 miles every week to the local town!

    £500 sounds great! I think I'll try my luck at that!

    Thanks again

    if it is in great nick then i'd try and sell it to an owners club as it's a future classic with such low mileage. The book value will be all but zero but cars of that age and condition are a different kettle of fish!

    If £500's ok, advertise at £650. People love to haggle and it makes them feel good if they've just 'saved' £150 ;-)

    Not half, far less than that.. .. , the OP would still end up with the highest price available, let the dealers fight for it instead of trying to " beg " it.

    Yeah but dealers don't buy old cars and they don't want to pay a lot anyway because as well as getting fees from the sellers, places like BCA also completely fleece the buyer. £25 just to send the log book to the DVLA??? Wtf??? Then there's buyers premium, a charge for actually PAYING for the car you've just won even if you pay in cash etc. Mental :lol:

    Better off running it as a classified on ebay imho. Less risk and expense.

    +1. Plus, no dealer will buy it as there is probably no warranty they can apply to a 16yr old car.

    No risk at all at an auction, it is sold " as is ", not all auctions rip people off like BCA, trust me, there are dealers that will fight over this type of car, they only turn up once in a blue moon.

    And eBay don't rip people off???

    Ebay, 30 day listing £12ish no final value fee. How is that a rip off? As for an auction house, if it doesn't sell you've just lost your entry fee. There's one risk. It could also sell for £50, there's another, chuck on a reserve and we're back to losing the entry fee if it doesn't reach it or an acceptable price. But yeah, not all car auctions are a big a rip off as BCA, our local one is a lot cheaper but full of junk that sells for sod all:lol:

    The fiesta would be cheap on insurance for the young'uns. My friend put his daughters in the paper and the phone was ringing off the hook:thumbsup:

    If you've got pics, I might have somebody interested at £500.

    Where are you based?

    ebay is maybe not a bad idea - lots of people on the look out for interesting cars!
