i would be selling for about £650, thats if its got any history, if its got no history then buyers will think its been clocked, as these cars are VERY easy to clock.

Andy,

These are reasonable small cars in some ways, certainly a great improvement over a 1983 model.

We have friends who bought a near identical car in very smart bright red earlier this year, just £500 cash. Knowing the dealer who sold it to them he got it from somewhere for about £250. So they can go really cheap.

Having said that, like the BX now, it's not a case of how much but will anyone buy it at all. Over the years I've been asked asked for a "nice little Fiesta or Metro for about £1000" time and time again. Now the same enquiry from the same sort of buyer is apt to be "I'm looking for a nice litte Fiesta for about £1000, I don't really want a Metro".

Ignore the mileage, it is a debateable advantage even if supported by history....short runs etc.

these cars are bought by boy racers, who want a GTI of anykind, i might be interested in it, as my next door neighbour has a 1986 1.0 metro, but wants another metro, but the sporty model (you cant really call one of these cars sporty, but what the hell)
Metro GTi 16v - strip it and race it - David Lacey
Buy it, strip it out, fit a roll cage and a 1.8 K series Variable Valve engine (as I did) and go sprinting & hill climbing. Great motorsport fun and it is real cheap.

Once bitten, forever smitten.
