It's worth a punt! Good luck with that and put a post on here with a link and the item number just in case someone browses this website looking for one.

Thanks Ian, the thoughts are welcome and yes, PistonHeads is a good idea. I have just learnt from my brother in law thay they sold an ancient mini bus for £2,700 on Ebay having been expecting £500 so it works. Lets try Ebay and see what happens.

This is a bit of a difficult question to answer.
I have been in contact with several new owners of Pilgrims recently so the market is definitely there - whether they bought on an auction website I do not know.
There is only one Pilgrim Bulldog on eBay at present, not one FT, and now is a very good time to sell. I have seen several cars change hands over the years at Kit and Classic car shows, some quite unexpectedly, and many of them at Stoneleigh.
Have you thought about advertising it on Pistonheads?
If you do decide to sell on eBay then a lot of thought has to go into the advert. I sold my old Citroen Picasso some years ago on eBay, thinking that I would get a few hundred for it, and it sold for nearly £2.5k . My son helped in composing the advert, which went into great detail, plus many pictures showing every angle of the car, inside and out which is absolutely essential.
Anyway I am sorry to hear the you are selling your beloved FT, but wish you every success.
Ian

Hi guys, I need some advice on selling a kit car via eBay.
After nearly 25 years the time has come to sell my beloved FT (I am basically getting too old and have a new toy) but I am one of those who holds cars forever and have no experience with selling cars on eBay - I only ever use eBayt for buying bits.
On those rare occasions when I do sell car I would normally sell via Auto Trader but it does not have an option for a Pilgrim FT so that seems to be a dead end.
So, my questions about eBay are, what experience do people have? Do kits sell well via this platform? Is it best to go with a straight auction or go for a fixed price?
Any advice is welcome.

I've never been there shock horror - it's sort of been on my bucket list for a long time.
Can I add it to my new years resolution list please?

Yes events are a bit low on the ground, I do go to some of the props and Pistons shows to get out and about, I haven't been to Santa pod for a few years so may make a change

Might well be something to go for Nigel - little else apart from classic car shows now.
