without knowing the overall condirtion of the beast its really hard to
tell what its worth however, if its sound (doesnt need floor, rockers
etc)and if the paintwork is servicable (this is REALLY important on this
model since its frankly the biggest difference from any old 75 BGT) then
the best guidance i can give you is that one sold in CT this summer for
$7500 in tip-top shape and i have seen one other at $3000 in ok condition
(the guy decided not to sell after getting about 40 phone calls)
Both were RHD cars - I have never seen a LHD one and im not sure if any
were made - even Porter is "mute" on that point.
Good luck, my guess is the guy who bought it has an "ear to ear" right
now - lets hope he doesnt have any chickens!!
