Is it worth my friend selling his 1958 Porsche 356 in the UK?

A friend in Holland has a fully restored 1958 Porsche 356 fixed head coupe with right hand drive and may one day have to sell it. He has owned the car for about 40 years but has not driven it since emigrating from South Africa 10 years ago. The car is properly stored, on blocks and covered in a garage. Apparently there is very little demand for the car in the Netherlands and thus he tells me it is not worth all that much there. I believe that he could do much better in trying to sell the car in the UK, so would you have any idea how much the car is worth and who he may contact should he need to sell it?
