Current pricing

Post by D4nc » Sun Oct 03, 2021 9:15 am

Hi All,

Not been on here for a while. Life and a garage door has dropped my scirocco down the priority list.
Starting to write up winter to do list and gather parts etc an I couldn’t help noticing that there are a few cars up for sale for strong money.

Is the Scirocco market finally turning? Are they selling? Or are people firing out a high price and hoping that someone will bite?
What’s your thoughts?

I think some dealers and private sellers are trying to raise the price at the moment with some daft money examples being listed, but at the other end of the market I've seen some auctions finish for sub £500 for projects etc.

Anything from the 80s is booming at the moment though, so average prices will definitely be creeping up.

I thought 95 was a bit low, but it sounds like it’s the figures for the Gtx and gti models only.
My 1991 gt2 has 143K in all round good usable condition, with the odd ding in the body. Upgraded rear disc conversion, new fuel tank, Scala wheels, Jetex exhaust but otherwise standard. Listed with Lancaster insurance at £2750. They have a compliment of pictures backing up this figure.

I wonder if I asked £4500 at next renewal backed up by the same pictures, would they agree to this figure.???? And then you have the scenario of buyers offering low offers because of historical sales value. The world market looks unstable in my eyes due to the phasing out fossil fuel engines. Maybe this could drive up prices of under appreciated models such as our beloved sciroccos. Who knows….


kind regards,

Dave.
