Cant quite decipher what you mean... However, unless it's absolutely rotten as a pear, it's worth way more than £850. Get your mate to stick it on eBay and let the market decide. If it's solid overall, I'd imagine £2k+ would be easy.
Difficult to guesstimate as pics don't show much. It was an uncommon car originally and has become fairly rare, I was 7 when they started churning these out & I don't recall seeing more than one or two estates during my lifetime. I'm surprised the engine went, they're usually very solid & reliable lumps, it must have had very high miles or it had seen a lot of neglect & abuse.
The better Consul / Granada saloons are going for up to £16K. I imagine the Coupé's must be more? (Damn they were a handsome range!)
The DVLA figures are difficult to interpret but the Ford Granada Guild guesstimated in 2012 that there were 163 Mk 1's on the road to 201 SORNed. How many of these 360+ cars would have been estates?
That £850 is way off and I can't imagine anyone has banger raced one of these in a long time.
IF it's not shot with rust. IF the replacement engine's decent. £2½K+ ? IF it needs a lot of welding & new panels. IF the engine's an unknown quantity or dubious it might be worth as little as £1½K.
its my m8s timeing gear alright starts runs smokes like good un.worn rings or valve guides,cant get any sense out off him,could sold it loads off times was offered 2k,but he hoarder got 2 minis one old k reg scamp,rotten as pear.2 old J bikes left in his front garden,old safri caravan came with granda when he bought it.he chopped up old mk4 cortina estate that he ran to ground,gave up probably stay in its resting place till he dies.shame,
