Noel J. Southey ASKED THE GUIDE

Austin powers

I AM the proud owner of a 1958 Austin Lancer. It is complete and would probably run if I put some petrol and a new battery into it. What is the best way to determine if the vehicle has any value, and then where do I market it?

GOOD to hear from the proud owner of an Austin Lancer. That was a good little car, and even performed quite well on the racetrack when driven by such luminaries as Brian Sampson. Unfortunately, the value isn't high. I would expect a car in need of a full restoration to be worth up to $500, an average car still registered and running about $1500 and a trophy winner up to $5000. Try advertising it in the specialist publications, but I would recommend contacting a relevant car club.
