Swallow Doretti Price Guide

The price guide will give you an indication of the value of a particular car. However there is not a specific set of criteria governing the valuation of a car or its purchase price. Many factors influence a car's value apart from its overall condition; e.g. whether it is right or left-hand drive or has been converted from one to the other. Possession of the original registration number and documentation is very important. Original logbook(s), old MoT's, a current V5 document and MoT test certificate will add value, while a full and unbroken service history will also greatly enhance the price.

Guide prices are quoted according to the following descriptions.

  • Restoration
    Totally neglected and some trim items missing, but should be complete with engine and transmission. Complete restoration required. Little or no history, many owners and indeterminate mileage.
  • Complete
    Tatty condition but a running car with functioning mechanics and weather equipment included. Some restoration necessary. Little history, many owners, indeterminate mileage.
  • Good
    Complete and original needing only minor restoration and in good mechanical order. Paint and trim may look tired. Reasonable history/service record. Would make excellent club car.
  • Excellent
    Low original mileage or else had a full high-quality restoration. Mechanically sound and needing no repairs. Panel gaps, paint finish and interior all near perfect. Considerable history, including restoration records. Needing little work to elevate to concours standard.
  • Concours
