If that car were here in the States and was a presentable driver with nice paint and interior and in good mechanical condition, that car wold bring $5-8 thousand dollars.
The areas to check are: the chassis for rot, the bottoms of the fenders and bottoms of the rear quarter panels. Look in the trunk, they usually rust through over the body mounts.
Sometimes the top of the rear quarter panel, near the rear side windows, will crack, which is very common when those rear body mounts go bad.
Can you post some pictures for me to see?
