How much is my Ford Orion worth?

I have a B-reg Ford Orion. It has been standing for several years, but is in pretty good condition all things considered and I think should be a fairly straightforward restoration. It was a perfect runner when laid up, but doubtless would need some TLC now. I would like to sell it "as is" and have had interest expressed a couple of times but would appreciate some sort of order of magnitude estimate as to its current value.

The Orion is one of the few cars where 'Ford tax' doesn't seem to apply. As a result, Orions aren't hugely desirable and prices reflect that. You occasionally see 'timewarp' examples advertised for prices north of £3k - but few sell at that. There was a 1988 one-owner example with 46k on the clock that went for £1220 at Morris Leslie in February. Like yours, it had been laid up for a while. So it seems a price of £750-£1150 might be realistic - but have a look at what Orions are currently for sale and price yours accordingly.
