Hi and welcome to the forum..firstly sorry its due to wrotten circumstances that your here.
The car sounds like a smahing buy for a collector..with all original paperwork etc..etc..some pics may help and put it in the for sale section on here as the likes of autotrader are more likely that they wont have a specific buyer looking for your friends TF.
As for price the market is very up and down with prices everywhere! Plus its really the wrong time of year for you to sell..if you can wait a few months the demand will be better :thumbsu:
There are some dealers who would charge very good money for a low mileage car like your friends..some more info regarding coolant isdues being addressed would be helpful too.
Just a start im sure others will be along to advise better than me..good luck with it!
My cars..MY04 '54 MGTF135 in Starlight Silver..
MY05'54 SAAB 9-5 LINEAR SPORT in Smokey Beige Metallic..

Low mileage cars unfortunately throw up their own set of problems if the tyres are original all four will need changing & any rubber articles like seals/boots etc may have stuck or perished & need replacing can make it expensive?
Fs & TFs need using they don't take to well to standing in garages.
