Tricky one. The mileage adjustment tables published in guides never seem to make a huge amount of difference to a car's value - £150 per 10k up or down, for example - but that really is extreme low mileage.
Would disregard the Glass valuation: they're pants. If I were you I'd look at Autotrader online.
There's a 53 reg 1.6 manual with less than 20k for £3500 (trade), and 2004 1.6 manual with similar mileage for £4200 (trade again). Don't know about the nuances of trim levels but they're not going to be higher-specced than your father's car, and both are out in the sticks.
If the car's absolutely immaculate and you're in the South East then a private sale of £3500+ *might* be possible, but were I the buyer I'd be looking for you to have given it a 72k service first. Underuse is bad news for many components.
