I have recently bought an early 50's superpoise s25 and I'd like to get some expert opinion as to what it might be worth. It's done a genuine 32,500 miles and aside from a cab respray has needed no other major restoration work. It came with original manuals, tools and jack.
Any help would ba appreciated.

Brad, It's worth whatever you payed for It...

These "whats It worth" threads nearly always end up in a Argument or slanging match..

Because those that matter...
don't mind...
And those that mind....
don't matter." -

I suggest you contact the Rootes Group Car club Inc you'll find them on google
Old trucks will make you poor but not unhappy

My honest thoughts are it wouldnt be worth much at all as Pommy trucks arent as collectible as yanky based trucks or at least thats how it appears to be
I think the pommy truck collectors are becoming more common as the old yanky iron dries up
But as has already been said its only worth what someone will pay for it

Your better to die trying than live on your knees begging

Thanks all.
It definitely seems to me that anything with a ford or Chev badge attracts a bigger market, possibly driven by the hotrod crowd, and that the value of anything is only ever what someone else is willing to pay but hopefully my outlay has been worth the investment and until then it will remain a much loved old girl.
I'll follow up on that rootes group link.
Thanks again..

I missed out on a 1956 Commer truck at a clearing sale about a year ago simply because I couldn't get to the auction and despite registering and arranging details with the auctioneer they failed to phone me at auction time, It was sold for $600, was registered and as the owner had informed me beforehand, "Come with a mate and drive it home, it'll be good for Darwin as is!"
Think I wasn't peeved!? The towie that was at the auction had his wife drive it home and it was sold later for $3000+!!!
They are worth what someone will pay for them :dry:
