They can be, depends on condition and originality a lot of the time. Only thing that might be worth more than a Coupe is a Courier, usually.

It also depends if it's a 948 or a 1200 coupe, and if it's a 948, if it's a smooth roof. If you can post photos etc it'll help make an assessment.

Coupe's might be rarer than convertibles but also less people want them. So might be slightly more valuable but harder to sell as more people would be looking for a convertible.
Like Jon said 948 smooth roof coupes seem to be the most sort after followed by the ribbed roof 948 and then the 1200, so unless immaculate not worth a fortune.
I have a coupe which in the process of rebuilding but going to cost a lot more than it will ever be worth

Cheers Andy

I would differ on Andy's point aboput desireability. I don't see Coupes hanging around for long, nearly every one I've seen come to market in recent years has sold quickly. There are exceptions, one or two have been very optimistically priced, while others have been in extremely rough condition. Prices are usually higher than Convertibles, with less of them available.
1200 Coupes on the Mk2 chassis (post June 1962) are pretty thin on the ground, arguably the best of the lot in terms of practicality, though I personally love the early features of the 948s.

Cheers,
Bill.

I have had two Coupe's, one a very early model '59  and a '64, the '64 was by far the better of the 2 cars and as Bill says, more practical.

Looks pretty good - as far can be seen from pics.  The wire wheels aren't to my taste and the purists won't like the Vitesse bumper cappings, but both are easily sorted.

Has 13/60 engine fitted by the looks - which could be considered an advantage provided it's on a Mk2 chassis!
