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.
