Peugeot 205 GTi 1.6 - keep or sell?

I have a 1991 Peugeot 205 GTi 1.6, which I bough back in May and have been restoring back to good condition. It was a bit tatty when I bought it, but it is now in nice condition, with a new interior etc. In a week or two it'll be about as good as I can get it without spending thousands on full body respray.

It has done 148,000 miles though and it will never be one of the pristine 205 GTis that are seen for sale. However, with prices rising, I'm wondering if you think they will go any higher for a car like this?

As interest increases and supply doesn't then even cars like yours will rise a bit, but don't expect it to go up by thousands. Have fun. The only current car that comes close is the Fiesta ST.
