Some stupidly priced on ebay...  But checking the sold items £500 seems about average

for a low miles car in good condition.  One did sell for £1000 but all original and less

than 40k miles from new, never welded and never failed an MOT.

stupidly priced seems par for the course for older Fords. i was going to get another Sierra Sapphire, like the one i had a few years back, not a fancy one, like a cosworth, just a humdrum LX. i had a plan for it. i paid £200 for mine. wish id kept it now (got rid as i couldnt keep 2 cars as i had no off street parking at the time, while the Sierra got sorted) but now they want £1k MORE than i aid for mine. and thats the CHEAPEST ive seen. for what my plans are/were, i couldnt justify that kind of spend on the purpose i had in mind for it!

Handy that ebay show actual sold items and the amount they sold for.  So you know

the ones listing cars for £2000 - £3000 are seriously mad when better cars are selling

for £500 - £1000.

 

Same with classic Mini's, used to pay peanuts for them and was quite shocked when one

of the car shows on TV bought an absolute wreck for over £1000.

agreed. a few years back we bought a 'proper' mini, 16k genuine miles for £200. when the family parted with it, i went abssolutely mental as it was sold to a MINI enthusiast for LESS than we paid for it, and this was at a time when prices were shooting up!

i mean, lets face it, i remember when you almost couldnt GIVE a capri or mk2 escort away as they were so rotten, now a bare SHELL for either will set you back a few GRAND!!

You could say that about any car over the age of 25. Once watched a Morris Minor (not even a woody) up for something like 30k IIRC. There are chancers out there.

difference being some of the ones i see on ebay are total WRECKS! for example i saw a capri a few months back. not a single panel (that i could see) was solid. floors, sills, wheelarches, inner/outer wings, scuttle, roof, EVERY SINGLE panel was rotted out, interior needed replaced, and they were into 4 figures for it! im not even sure it had an engine/gearbox etc!

same with a mini i saw last week or the week before. £980 starting price and the only solid panel on THAT was the roof. there WERE no quarter panels left, theyd rotted almost completely away!!!

Does the MKIII have an adjustable clutch cable?

not manually adjusted no. the cable adjustment is taken care of by a ratchet and pawl set up on the clutch pedal, much like the mk3/4 escort etc.

Okay, thanks. That means a new clutch plate. It doesn't slip but the 'biting point' feels a little high.

depending on the price you are asking, you might be better off just selling it as is. unless its a 5 door, chances are it will get bought to 'reshell' an RS turbo or XR2i anyhow! plus the effect on its value will be pretty much zero.

How do you remove the rear bumper on a MKIII? is it easy or difficult? I've looked online but there's very little as a guide.

 

Cheers, PP.
