S54 could be for sale...

Post by Gooseacre » Thu 09 Mar, 2017 22:27

Hi all,

It is with a heavy heart that I may need to sell my S54. It is a little over 100k but well looked after with lots of receipts, service history etc. I have had it for over 3 years but is currently SORNed; I had a very serious bicycle accident in November - nearly died! - hence I have not been driving since then - made sense to SORN my roadster. It seems increasingly likely that I will not get back to driving it hence may look for a new home.

Before I advertise etc. is anyone reading the forum keen on finding and buying (!) an original S54? It has not been changed from stock at all apart from a stereo and braided clutch cable (as far as I know and can tell!)

You must be gutted about having to let the car go. Hope you make as full a recovery as you can. How much are you looking for the car and does it have aircon and power roof?

Thanks

Hi David
I would be great to join the ranks of the '73' so have got to ask the crunch question....
How much were you thinking?
Regards

Gutted to be asking this question as I love having a car so rare. To answer the question "how much" I will need to reverse it as I don't definitely have to sell it! How much is someone looking to spend on one of the 73! It is so difficult to estimate the value. I have seen adverts recently for high mileage S50s over 20k.

Start high.

Try webuyanycar.com and then double, or treble it.

They are quoting £9k for my 130,000 example, so I'd advertise at £18k and lower as summer approaches. Someone would think they got a bargain when they pay £15k in May or June on a car advertised at £16.5k

It's up on the stock exchange forum.

Anyone got any suggestions for other free places to advertise?. I believe Pistonheads was free a number of years ago but costs £12 for 30 days now.

Sorry to hear about your accident and that the S54 has to go.

I'm a keen cyclist and each day that I go out, it now feels like I'm playing roulette as to whether today will be the day that I get taken out... :(

Ive just seen your advert/post for the Z and I think that £21.9K is a very reasonable price for such a rare car ( I am slightly biassed!). I sold my last S50, the Family Ford Smax, a VW T5 Camper and my 911 all through Piston heads over the last four years and had no problems with any of the sales. At the time, I think they charged £10 for an advert and always thought it was money well spent compared to Auto-trader.

Good luck with the sale and your ongoing recovery.

R.

In January I put a car on Pistonheads for a friend and since I was a Pistonheads member it was free as it has with previous adverts I've put entered. I sold my last three BMWs on Pistonheads, so I've had a lot of success with that site over the last 10 years. So unless the policy has changed, sign up as a member and it should be free.

Good luck with the sale.

Thank you for your thoughts and words. I'd been cycling for just over 12 months - car pulled out in front of me. Chance in a million! Nearly died...

I am a member of the site but it still looks like it wants to charge me £11.99 for 30 days. Are there different kinds of "memberships"?

Just been digging and only free ads for those members since 2008 or earlier - not me unfortunately

I didn't realize I had been a PH member since 16th Sept 2004 when I logged into the site tonight!! No wonder I get ads for free. :)
