Is a 2005 Ford Orion worth restoring or should I scrap it?

I have a Ford Orion that has been locked up since 2005 with 92,000 miles on the clock. Would it be best to sale for restoration project, for spares or reluctantly scrap it?

With just 1700 Ford Orions left, according to our data, we'd recommend that you try and find a good home for it. These aren't as desirable as some Fords, so the values are a bit depressed. You do see 'timewarp' ones advertised for sale at quite high prices, but few often make that kind of money. There is a growing demand for unmolested examples of everyday cars, so you could find a new owner for it if you're patient. You'll probably only get about £400-500 for it, though.
