1987 Camargue Anniversary Edition

I have found one that's a 25k mile example.... have no idea how to value it.

Single owner with a complement of records.

Any thoughts?

Hi,


That's a hard one to answer. To even consider initially I would want to see high resolution pictures throughout and much of the service data records confirming the mileage is true.


Even then only with a viewing and I suggest you should use someone with whole vehicle knowledge to look over the car making sure no major body accident repairs or rust covered up.


Perhaps the easiest to answer is when the seller has a price and then maybe someone could be fair and say that it is a bit high or a decent price.


You have rarity of the vehicle which does go a long way keeping prices high and at some point maybe one day it could reach six figures.


If you have any links or pictures put them up to view.


All the best


Steve

Thanks for the response.

I am going to see the car in person. I had been around the car business in the different life (lol) so I know what to look for in terms of body work. Of course I don't know the particulars of this model per se.

I'd like to have a look at the records, and inspect the car myself. We'll see what the owner says in terms of price.

I am just trying to ball park it. I am pretty sure its not a six figure car, I am also pretty sure its not a $40k car.


Thanks

Become familiar with the brake pedal test. A low mileage car means it has not been exercised and for a RR could mean trouble, especially with RR363 brake fluid based systems. A complete hydraulic rebuild, hoses, spheres, fluid can be an easy 10K job.
This is not your traditional brake/hydraulic system. Become very familiar with it.

I reckon a 1987 Camargue will use LHM in the brake/hydraulic system. LHM is slightly more forgiving for less frequent fluid changes than the DOT3 RR363 used in the previous Silver Shadow models.

1987 should have the LHM hydraulic oil, which is a very good point.
If I had to buy one, it will be with LHM.
1987 is a late one , so if in good condition, you should study it carrefully


Price are growing in Europe, some can be very expensive
