How much is my classic MB worth?

What would be a realistic value to expect for selling my 1971 MGB GT with chrome bumpers? A purist will want to do work on it, an enthusiast will happily drive around and tinker. Any recommendations for selling privately or through a dealership?

It's going to depend a lot on the vehicle's history and condition (or how much tinkering needs doing). A rough estimate would be £3000-£3500 - but you can add or subtract value depending on the state of the bodywork. If you can, try and find a similar example for sale and price yours accordingly. These cars are still hugely popular so how you sell will depend on how much time you're willing to invest. We've got some advice on the subject here:
