How much should I pay for a classic MGB (rubber bumper)?

What is the going rate for a solid but not perfect MGB with rubber bumpers?

Car in question has solid sills, no rust and decent paintwork. Interior is decent with new full leather seat covers. Engine bay coated in waxoyl which is unsightly but has protected the metal. Probably needs a new hood (windows slightly clouded and repaired cracks in quarter lights). Overall it runs well and is sound but is no concourse winner.

A really good one is about £7500 (closer to £10k at a dealer) while a solid one that needs a bit of work is around £3000-£5000. It's always a good idea to have a look for similar models for sale and price yours accordingly. And don't forget prices for soft-tops can be seasonal.
