Hi - info needed on value

Hi All,

 

Newbie here, and after some help/advice on the below questions

 

Currently have my Mk 6 Escort Finesse but looking to finally upgrade to a newer, more comfortable car as doing many, many more miles per annum now due to family commitments.

 

Taken it to Ford, and they have pretty much laughed me off the forecourt

 

The car is beautiful, a couple of rust spots on the wheel arches, but mechanically perfect - one of the last to leave the production line I've been told due to the different type alloy wheels (not the standard Diamond ones the Mk6 came with, more like 6 spoke)

 

Typical Finesse spec - I know you guys and girls will know more about them than me so I won't insult anyone's intelligence by listing the spec LOL

 

Amparo Blue in colour - 1 owner from new and 81,000 on the clock sitting on an X (2000) plate

 

So my questions are:

 

1) How much do people think it's worth?

2) Does anyone know of a specific or specialist place (not eBay, Autotrader or Gumtree) that I can list it

 

Would rather it went to someone who can offer her a decent home - would love to keep her as I know it will be a future classic but no space :(

 

Many Thanks for your help!

1) Not as much as you'll value it. At the end of the day it's a rusty 16 year old Escort, and I mean that with the least possible offence. £500-700 with a years test?

 

2) List it here and (more so) other Ford enthusiast forums such as Passion Ford. If it's solid then someone might want to buy it to stick a bigger engine in it.

 

Sadly it won't be bought for a good home. It'll be bought as a cheap hack or a project.

No offence taken!

Thanks for being honest - that £500 valuation is about what I had pictured in my mind, as you say she is a rusty 16 year old Escort and not deemed classic just yet!

 

I will list on here as well as PassionFord - thanks for your help :)
