Selling my stolen/recovered car?

My Zafira was stolen in January and my insurance company wrote the car off as soon as I reported the theft. The car was recovered with no damage a few weeks later by which time I had another car. A check on the car shows it as stolen and an insurance theft write off. I wish to sell the car but I am not sure how to proceed and will I get a reduced price due to it being a write off? The car is perfectly sound and it has just passed it's first MOT

It will be classified as an insurance Cat D write off and its value will be reduced, but not by much.
