Mk1 convertales are making 30k plus. Mint saloons are strong at the moment 20k plus. Their is one for sale at the moment as 35k. That estate is very rare and worth its asking price all day long.

I agree. Not that I'd buy it if I had the money because it isn't my thing but to someone who does have the money and hankers after something this unusual then I guess it is a fair price. You've only to look at what mk1 2dr escort bodyshells are fetching these days to appreciate something like this that needs nothing by the looks of it. Rog.

Just look at the cars that were raced by the banger boys back in the 70's and 80's If only half of those cars had been saved before they got their hands on them there'd be a lot more classics around to appreciate. :D. Rog.

Of course it's worth the money. If that had a Jag badge or Merc badge and was one of 10 only what do you think the asking price might be?

1 used to be a banger racer 20 odd years ago.alot of the cars raced back then were mk3/4/5 cortina`s and mk1/2 granada`s.when i tink there were about 40 cars in each heat/race i`m surprised there are anyof these cars left.i surpose there is an up side, it`s made the value of the cars go up due to the rarity

Yeah I was never really interested in Banger Racing all that much. Yeah I know it's all just intended for fun and I see the appeal (I also know of someone who does it today), but I always thought it was kind of like a "poor man's rally event". Hahaha :D

also an ex banger racer:rofl: it was never a cheap sport, most cars i raced were in my eyes scrapyard material, but now regret not selling off useable parts:sniff:, but thinking of the cost of world final cars (£1000's just on paint) and pre 67's.
Could of had a lurvelly classic garage full of cars by now if i had learnt earlier.

But still today racers have and will pay good money for useable and sometimes roadworthy cars, but if they are preppared to pay the price then who's at fault.

Having raced all mentioned and still owning a farina variant (riley 4/72) which are rarer amd a rover p4.
Farinas must of been good cars cos they made 100,000's of the bloody cars, yes not too everyones taste but at the time affordable, mostly reliable and easy repairable cars:D.
