Market values - 3 more data points

For those keeping an eye on used Scimitar values, a few interesting new 'highs' are on C&C just now:

https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C958219
https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C914521

Obviously asking a price and getting it are two different things, but even so, at this rate I'll be selling the MB to trade up to a 5 ... !!!

[no, that's not demeaning to 5s... actually I do rather fancy a 5, kind of neat and compact. They do say the original design is the most timeless... but I digress]

Amazing (and disappointing) that none of them are on the respective registers!

Good news for present owners, but not such good news for impoverished pensioners hoping to get back on board. The real benefit is that Reliant ownership gives a better return on savings than banks!

I do hope these car do fetch a selling price in the region of the asking prices.

UK pricing is still lots lower than continental pricing, compare to what the French market does.

The cheaper of the three has been on there for months.

The yellow and red one are very optimistic for the UK market. I would think they’ll be for sale for a very long time.

I’m not someone who puts the prices of our cars down, or sells them “too cheap”. I just hope that any future price rises are modest, and do nothing more than make restoration and investment in maintenance a viable proposition.
Once cars become investment opportunities, the scene changes as investors move in and enthusiasts are priced out.

As said before, this is chicken and egg. Cars will not command high values unless in excellent condition, and many owners will not spend lots on restoration unless they think the value will reflect the work done........... Not many scruffy DB4's about!

Chris Evans was on about a DB4 zagato this morning. It goes to auction at Goodwood FOS expected to fetch 15 million. It was crashed by Jimmy Clark and repaired and bought by current owner for £3600 in early 70s.

Using that rationale the sabre was crashed by me (cosmetic only) in 2015 at Wiscombe, I expect my kids to flog for 30 mil in 2068? :lol: :lol: :lol:

Nicely restored SE6A coming up for auction, guide £5-7K so hopefully another sale to underpin the rising value of the cars. Got to love that bonnet. No idea what it's there for (surely not just for the air filter?), but does look kewl :lol:
