How much is my 1980 Mini 1275GT worth?

I've had a 1980 Mini 1275GT since new and it's covered just 50,000 miles. It doesn't go and has not moved for five years but is in surprisingly good condition on the outside. I now realise I am not going to get around to any restoration so wish to sell. How can I value it so that I get a sensible price?

As a rough guide, we'd expect to see a concours Mini 1275GT on sale for more than £10k while £5000-£7000 seems to be the price set for good one. Projects can vary wildly between £1000 and £2500. If you need a specific valuation, you can either find a car that's in similar condition to yours for sale and price it accordingly - or you can contact the British Mini Club ( and see if they can help.

I have had an 18 year old MGF almost since new and have had years of fun in what I consider to be the last true MGs. Do your think the price has bottomed out or will they continue to fall in value?
I own a Porsche 944 Turbo 1987. I have owned it since 1990 and it only has one previous owner with a mileage of 91,000. It failed its MoT for the first time this summer due to rust where the sills join...
The most spectacular crash in any car's value in recent years has to be the MGF. Please give me any reasons that would explain this phenomenon. Are they good value for the money?
