This is another one of my uncles cars I’ve been tasked with selling, he passed away recently and left a few motorbikes which have now sold And three cars, this one is a tidy lunar grey 3500 V8 model, in good tidy condition no rot that I can see anywhere on the floor or inner wings He bought this car from me some 25 years ago And hardly used it, he had a stainless exhaust fitted and new carpets last summer, it needs a good tune up but does run and drive well, I’m not sure what to advertise it at Any advice appreciated He also had a p5 coupe which I will be sorting to sell on soon that in my opinion is worth 10k The p6 I just can’t price?
I'm guessing the car has been garaged and little used during most of the 25 years he has owned it? Is the 25K miles genuine or 'around the clock'? If it is a genuine low mileage car that will have a significant bearing on value. There are restored P6's advertised for up to £35K these days, (which isn't to say anyone is paying that). It does look nice, (wonky wing mirror and boot-mounted spare wheel aside), t's difficult to determine from these photos what the condition is other than not a rotbox. If it's a decent sound car with 125K miles it might be a £5-£8K car, if it's exceptional with 25K miles it could be £12-£15K.

Dan - That's fair at that money but still cheapish - I have virtually the identical car - same colour but all original - 2 owners & 23k miles from new with every piece of paper / invoice / work detail ever undertaken

Thanks ^^^^, the rover has sat for a while and will need some fettlling and a few bits doing but is a very solid nice tidy car we will be happy if it goes to an enthusiast So circa 4K will be what my aunt will be happy with I’m preparing the mg midget Sunday Then it’ll be the rovers turn to get ready to sell
Checked the rover and found a few bits need doing Has an oil leak can’t see where it’s coming from possibly filter housing We decided on £2750 I’m definitely not eBaying it We’ve had so many messers from there on the midget

I am totally out of touch with Rover prices, not a clue. However looking at that I wouldn’t have guessed it was a £2,750 car.
Looks like it would be a cracking classic for someone and excellent value for money.
I understand eBay has a lot of time wasters, however it seems to have an incredibly large target audience, muppets included. What about CarAndClassic? Don’t know what their advertising costs are though.
