Based on auction results by the looks of it. Add circa £15k if they end up with a dealer and haggle if you want to buy it.

While the figures may be based on real auction results, I'd hazard a guess few were truly concours candidates going under the gavel. Probably some over described and wrongly attributed within the table as well.

I would agree that the figures are not a reasonably accurate estimate of values. I have written recently about tarp dwellers coming out. The figures quoted are for generally poor quality cars
I am sure. Auctions stop them being adequately inspected by knowledgable parties allowing really project or, near, incredible shite boxes to be sold. Ready for another tarp eventually I suppose.These cars are bought generally by "new" enthusiasts unwilling or desperately unable to pay the amounts asked for quality goods. Unfortunately this data gives a poor "opinion" of the marque not founded on actual private or dealer sales. Kenny38 8)

March 2019? It's only the middle of January. The dates on these magazines get more and more ridiculous and out of touch with reality. Hasn't someone told them that there is yet another whole month before March comes along?
Before too long no doubt we'll get the December issue in July!

Practical Classics produce 13 magazines a year ( extra Spring issue) and therefore need to squeeze the dates somewhat.

Thanks for the post From practical classics, for comparison here are the results for the values of the 1973 interceptor quoted on the Haggerty classic car price list 1973 Jensen Interceptor III
2dr Saloon
Values by Condition

Condition 2: Excellent
#2 cars could win a local or regional show. They can be former #1 cars that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws, but will be able to find some not seen by the general public. The paint, chrome, glass and interior will all appear as excellent. No excessive smoke will be seen on startup, no unusual noises will emanate from the engine compartment. The vehicle will drive as a new car of its era would. No customisations have been made. The one word description for #2 cars is "excellent."
Interceptor Mk111
Volvo P1800
Mercedes Benz 230SL
Porsche BoxsterS
