The most frequently asked question I get in the classic car world is: “What is a xyz model 123 worth?” The two key factors are rarity and condition. Any car in poor condition, be it a Ferrari or Mini, is worth very little. Unless a real ‘basket case’ find is a very rare car, it is only worth the value of any salvageable parts. Even if it is a sound car, a lot of money in parts and time will need to be spent to get the car up to a high standard. This invariably means that the cost of the restoration is far greater than the end value of the car.

These days, it is possible to build a brand-new car in that there are new shells available for Minis, MGs, Triumphs for example and a wide number of part manufacturers produce replacement parts. Meanwhile, Jaguar Land Rover have set-up their own heritage department to rebuild older models and also to hire them out.

So, a very rotten MGB can be worth £200 for its identity and the odd salvageable part but a professional restorer could then charge you more than £20,000 to re-shell it into a car that is probably better put together than the original. However, the worth of the car on the

open market will be considerably less than the amount spent. The same would apply to a Ferrari but the figures would be many times greater! Don’t believe what you see on Wheeler Dealers, where they don’t take into account the restorers time or the cost of the hundreds of smaller parts which are needed.

Wigton Motor Club is fortunate to have a huge amount of expertise amongst its 850 members and if anyone needs advice about a classic car, or about any aspect of motorsport, we are always delighted to help.

Major dates for the next few months are: 22nd April, Drive It Day at Dalemain; 22nd June Lake District Classic Rally and 19th August Cumbria Classic and Motorsport Show at Dalemain.
