Sadly, the time has come for me to part company with my 1990 'Sergio Tacchini' 999cc Panda. But how much should I sell it for...any ideas? 12 months MOT, 3.5 months tax, must be worth something. It's in decent nick for a 16yo car, but most of the panels have some form of minor dent/scratch and the bottom edge of the LH is perforated with rust. But no rust underneath!!! And the exhaust, tyres and brakes are all great, and the car has had a new wheel bearing. The downside is that the cambelt needs doing.

It needs to go quickly, and somebody at work has offered me 70 quid. Should I take it, or is it worth more? ANy ideas would be appreciated!

Mike

70!!! no! at least 300?

I agree, depending on mileage / condition, the full MOT is worth at least £200-£300 of anybody's money. The car sounds looked after and I think that goes a long way.

If you take each month's MOT as being worth £25 ish, you have £300 straight off. See here for an idea of what the value is - at least it gives you a starting point :)

In short, the other guy would be laughing if you sold it to him for 70 quid.

I disagree. £300 is top whack for a Panda (4X4 Pandas excepted).

Even though it has a years mot the bodywork sounds shabby. It's always hard to say without seeing the car, but I think you'll be doing well to get £200 for it.

People will always haggle for a bargain - a Panda is seen as a cheap car and still fairly easily obtainable (just look at the various examples on e-bay), that's why they will try it on. If it was a mate, and I knew he wanted the car and would look after it, I would give him first option at a greatly reduced price - anyone else look for a realistic price from (£200+?)

sure it was a special edition but pretty much all of the pandas out there are a special edition (in one way or another) the tacchini did have the funky interior and metallic paint though. it doesnt really make a difference, at the end of the day its still a 2 wheel drive.:)

sounds like a plan... the cambelt needs doing, does this mean that the cambelt has snapped destroying all the valves, orr I can drive it home and change the cambelt?
