Hi guys. I have a Peugeot 205gti mi16 that I purchased in 2009. I ran it for a few years but the bottom end started rattling so I decided to park it up because I hadn’t the money to do a proper job on doing it up. It’s been dry stored for the pat 7 years. Body is pretty good but would need a respray due to some paint fading on the roof. It has some extras like a quaiffe diff, 309gti front suspension and 306gti brakes. My question is what’s the car roughly worth as is and what would it cost me to do a good job on doing it up. Engine and body overhaul being the major costs I presume. I’m handy enough with spanners so could do some of the work myself.

Classics cars are suffering badly from Brexit at the moment as they are the type of purchase that can be put back, or off completely , so I'd imagine the market would be better here than over the water at the moment. Where that is is hard to say but for the Mi 16 as is, needing engine work and a respray id say 3-4 k.

Is it not the exact opposite, strong euro to sterling exchange rate and a flat €200 vrt once over 30. I know of a good few classics that have been brought in recently.

What makes you think that? In relation to values of classics in the Uk
From what I hear the very expensive stuff has dropped but it’s the opposite in the right stuff that is relatively reasonable price wise of the 80’s/90’s/00’s is performing quiet strongly in the U.K. at present....
I think it’s to do with lack of quality vehicles available and the strong demand n the U.K which has caused prices to increase strongly in recent years to present...

Simple factual indicators like stuff not making reserves on eBay classics live auctions. This leaves vendors with a choice to either withdraw from sale or slash prices , which is not the British mindset until there's a crash.
