Is my Hustler six-wheeler kit worth anything?

I have a Hustler six-wheeler kit. Do you know what it's worth?

Styled by the late William Towns after he left Aston, the ‘Hustler’ was a kit-car designed to accept Mini engines and running gear. Resembling a larger and squarer Mini Moke, around 80 kits were thought to have been sold during the 1980s. Given the strong market for Mokes, Hustlers have a following in kit car circles. Indeed, one was offered at auction ten years ago for £22-£26k, although I don't think it sold. And therein lies the problem - the Hustler is rare enough to command a premium, but there aren't many buyers who want one. There's actually one for sale at auction later this month with Brightwells. Reg BRO536F it has an estimate of £6500- £8.500. It's been fully restored and up-rated with a lively 1275cc HiF38 engine, LCB RC40 single-box 2in twin-exit stainless exhaust system. It has front disc brakes with four Minifin-braked rear hubs and original restored Weller wheels. Also of note are LED lights, half-leather BMW seats and additional gauges in a bespoke dashboard all completed to a high standard.
