Where can I sell a 1984 Nissan Cherry?

My uncle, who is sadly now suffering from demetia, has a petrol (1270 cc) 1984 Cherry which we'd like to sell on his behalf. It's currently garaged in West London, has been well looked after and has done just over 71k miles as well as being currently registered as SORN. I would like to sell it and find it a good home with perhaps someone who would appreciate it. Do you have a suggestion of a good place to sell such a vehicle?

While a Cherry is certainly old enough to be considered a classic, it belongs to an era of cars (Renault 6, Hillman Avenger) that doesn't have much of a following, I'm afraid. Consequently, prices remain fairly low. This means that a non-runner - albeit in good condition - could struggle to sell. There is a demand for the car from the modifying sector, but not everyone wants to see the car they're selling end up as someone else's project. If you're keen to sell, we'd recommend that you place the car for sale in as many outlets as possible: Car and Classic, Classic Cars for Sale, Honest John Classics will give you good coverage online while weekly newspapers Classic Car Weekly and Classic Car Buyer also have a strong readership.
