My friend wants to sell his 68 MKIV due to health reasons. This car looks rough but there are no through-rust spots that I could find anywhere on the car. I could only post four pictures, but the car will include a hardtop and a complete brand new in boxes tan interior set with new seats.
Could some of you knowledgeable folks please comment on a reasonable value he should use for an asking price?
Thanks,
Keith

No engine or tranny? No more than the cost of the interior and that’s pushing it. Unless you’ve got a parts car to pull from, $250.00. Sorry.

I purchased a complete, original, assembled and running Mk4 Sprite for $1,000.

It is now my Sebring Sprite - much modified.

As jim said, if just the tub, $250. If all parts including 1275 and rib case trans are present, unassembled, maybe $750 to $1,000. Lots of work there ......

Jim and Lew,
There is a 1098 and tranny available. The interior/seats are probably worth $1,00-1,500 since they are new in box. I agree, the tub about what you stated. It is a solid body though. More than what I got. That is why I am asking though.
Thanks for your input.
Keith

Interior kit goes with it.

New seats for a '68 from Moss are $380 each and panels are $480, so yes, there is $1200 there. Carpets would get you to $1500 but are they also 40 years in waiting ?

1098 is not the correct engine for a '66-'68 MkIV, so maybe if original to car, it's a late '66 Mk3 ? VIN # will tell you HAN7 or HAN8 ?

Hard top may add another $300 or so, if someone wants a hardtop.

Tub may be of more value to someone who wants to build a vintage racer.

Cool Morris. My first car was a 57 Morris convertible.

The 1098 is just an extra. It was not in this car.

I cannot say how old the seats and interior kit is. I am guessing 8-10 years?

I wondered if he might get more just selling the interior kit and seats separate and taking what he can get for the tub?

Sell the interior and the requirement is you have to take the tub? smiling smiley

Its hard to tell from the picture but the hardtop may be a factory hardtop. As stated, hard to tell from the angle of the photo but...if it is, that may garner some additional funds.

In reply to # 207705 by lewmac VIN # will tell you HAN7 or HAN8 ?

I see exterior door handles and roll up windows which eliminates an AN7.
