I am currently storing a 1964 Rover P5 Coupe for a friend of mine as he has lost his storage unit recently.
He is wanting to sell the car, but has never got around to putting it up for sale and has asked me to help.
I would like a bit of advice if possible as to what the value of the car is at present and if there are any members on the forum who may be looking for one?
My friend got the car in 1998 and it has been in storage pretty much since then. It has had a number of jobs carried out on it and is a very solid car. It starts and drives, however for storage reasons we have disconnected the fuel pump. ( This is a brand new unit, which we connected last month and it started fine when we moved it to the new garage )
Bodywork wise, again, in pretty good condition for the age. The front drivers side wing has sustained a dink from the previous storage unit which is a shame, but easily fixed. The interior is blue leather and needs a good clean up. It has had new tyres all round laterly too.
Overall I would say that it is a great starting point for a simple restoration, but neither he nor I currently have the time to invest in the car and ideally I could do with having it moved from my storage unit in the next month or two.
Here are a few pictures of the car that I took when we moved it to the unit last month.

It really depends on what welding has been done before and is needed now and its mileage but £1000 without MOT at least double with it. It does look a good start for a restoration but I have seen good MOT's runners with history go for less or for the banger track.
More detail and location is required

Off the top of my head I think that the mileage is around 64k.
It is located in Swinton in Manchester in my storage unit.
It will need new brakes I would imagine to get it back on the road due to it being stood. Regarding welding, there isn't that much that I can see however it does have a small hole on the inside wheel well on the front passenger side about the size of a 50 pence piece. This is near to the bottom of the inner arch.
Otherwise its quite solid elsewhere.
The paint requires a good T-cut, and the front wing requires a dent repair.
