Before we all go around looking as smug as Mrs Doyle from Father Ted just after serving 100 cups of tea....it should be noted that 'asking for' and 'paying for' are very different things. :-)

For example, this viewtopic.php?p=358451#p358451 still remains unsold.

Hi Nick
The title should give this one away, it's the dealers jumping on the bandwagon at the moment, I'm sure no-one on here would pay these prices.

Clearly, but some might start to believe that they could sell for anything like those prices. So, I'm talking about some/a few dealers raising unrealistic expectations.

Indeed, only the other week I came across a very nice Puma that was being privately sold by auction with a starting price that was just too high (1.6 or 1.7K, I think). I spoke to the guy and got the 'I've had lots of watchers and am quietly confident, yadda, yadda..' Auction ended without a single bid being made on it.

Point is, Parkers has valuation of just £645 on a 2001 1.7 in great condition. Now obviously, they base that on standard mileage (mind you, so do the insurers) so a lower mileage version is worth a fair bit more than that, in my view, as I mentioned with Adam's silver one above.

But yeah, buyers don't care how much you've spent on it and are actually put off by aftermarket modifications usually, they just know how much they are willing to pay.. It's a buyer's market and it will be far more so in a year's time.

I was looking at Gumtree today and this made me laugh. I'm not making any 'big point' here, it's just that it didn't merit its own thread and here's as good as any. -

https://www.gumtree.com/p/ford/1.7-ford ... 1213042579

Only 48,000 genuine miles on a 2001, what could possibly go wrong? You could pick up a boot lid for 50 quid and own a classic!

Well, maybe so, but driven or not it's still a 16 year old car full of 16 year old plastic, rubber and metal bits (we'll gloss over the cambelt side, to keep it simple)

The car has just ran out of MOT in December but should have no problem passing.

Fine, add 50 quid to the price and put it through then.

What made me laugh was not the ad, but this - https://www.check-mot.service.gov.uk/ now put that Reg. number in.

:-P

I also note that the car failed the MOT with a higher mileage than when it was re presented and then passed in 2014.

Hi,
An interesting thread, that I am following closely. I feel that I may, against my wishes have to sell my silver Puma some time in the future due to my circumstances.

I'm sure some car dealers must use estate agent photography techniques, but wow that car does look genuinely lovely. Hope it's gone to a good home

Hi Guys
After Fanwheels last comments about good photography I had a zoom in on the photos and it could be a trick of the light but the bottom seam on the sill on the LHS of the car looks seriously rusty.

Is it not the same mileage? Probably stayed where it was and the MOT testing garage did the brake hoses.
In my opinion that could be a gem. Used regularly ( about 2000 miles a year and regularly serviced ).
I wonder if the new owner will appear on here.

Wow, that's steep! I suspect with it being such a late one it could well be a base one that hung around with no A/C. Just a guess mind seeing as there are no pics!!

Hi Nick
I wish mine only had 26K on it. I am actively looking for another red Puma now and I've seen about 4 red ones two of which they are asking stupid money for, they are really hard to find.

I'll keep an eye out for you, but, bizarrely, they all seem to be silver or black in the south of England. No idea why. :-)

Hi Stu
That's my other favorite colour for a Puma but, unfortunately, it's only on older cars which are not a match for mine parts wise.

It's appeared in the flesh now but, unfortunately, with dealer plates on it rather than it's own number.
