    You need to give a full description of all mechanicals and body plus decent photos of all details if you want to have anything more useful than comments between 8k and 60k.

    If you own a split I would expect you have a better idea already.

    From scrap metal value to highly inflated dreamers. Have a look at what is around and compare your machine with those offered. Price will determine how long it takes or if you sell at all. Good luck.

    Nice 62 you have.
    Hard to tell off one photo how good or bad it is .
    Nice it has the original seats an a rare middle one which are selling on there own for good money.
    Price will depend on the usual rust an any panel damage it has.
    Good luck with it.
    Cheers

    IMG20171222092821 (2).jpg 1513821963336.jpg Thank you for your replies, really will have to get more photos :) , and no, we didn't really realise the value when we happened to stumble across it in a paddock. There didn't seem to be a lot out there unrestored to compare prices, we are new to it all, but learning :)

    In that case beware the people lowballing you but also don't think that its worth a fortune.
    The big price restored ones have often had even more money spent on the restoration.
    Take your time and get a wide range of comparisons.
    Be realistic.

    Don't throw it to a restorer carte Blanche unless you have plenty if easy cash.

    Be fully informed before selling or starting a resto.

    Good luck with it.

    Cheers

    Market value of your bus, is what the market, (ie a buyer), is prepared to pay at any given time. :rolleyes:

    Not much help I know, but just food for thought........;)
