I need some advice on pricing for our MK1 Escort. It is a 1972 1300GT 2 door.

Not been welded. original seats and doorcards in great condition. no roof lining. was sprayed before storing in a barn.

Will need electrics doing and finishing as it came to us 12 years ago as a shell with boxes of bits following a bereavement. 

just want a fair price for it without being taken for a mug.
