Where can we sell our rare Citroen Dyane?

My car is a Citroen Dyane, January 1981. It has 81,814 on the clock, shining buttercup yellow, bought new, always garaged with seat covers, so the original upholstery is pristine. It's regularly serviced by a 2CV specialist, excellent condition. I do not want to sell but my husband is now disabled and can no longer drive or even get into it, so we use his car now and have not used the Dyane since its recent MoT test. Although we can keep it in an internal garage, I feel it would deteriorate and reluctantly conclude it would be better off with another (besotted) owner. Where could I sell it? What price could I put on it?

Dyanes are now very rare. Enter it in a classic auction, such as www.historics.co.uk, www.barons-auctions.com or follow the suggestion of our classics man, Keith Adams, and try 2CV Owners Club: www.2cvgb.co.uk first. Look for Ian Seabrook. If selling at auction, Keith recommended a reserve of £3000.
