Best thing to do is compare it to another one for sale. If yours is a lesser condition then you can expect a lesser price. Other thing is to ask a price that is fair to you in your mind considering condition. Popularity of vehicles also needs to be considered in valuation.  It's always a hard thing to value something as it may insult the owner or a buyer with the price. Take an offer that you are happy with to see it go.

G-day Adtrac. Recently I saw a Green HILLMAN  IMP for sale at ELIZABETH  NORTH - A SUBURB  OF ADELAIDE - asking price was $14,000- I checked this unit out - it was pretty damn good. . Anyway  after expressing my interest- I contacted the seller 2 days later to only find out that he had sold it for that amount  receiving cash for the sale. I am only saying this as that was my personal experience as related.
  I have my mothers Hillman  IMP in my shed- it is in almost perfect condition- White in colour- I do not want to sell it- have all books , service manuals  and records relating to mums ownership. Others put these units down but they are ACTUALLY  - mighty units.
  Regards  Shubystractorfarm.  Good luck.
