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.
