Being a LHD, it would be very attractive to the European or North American market especially if its fundamentally original.
Sorry to hear that health is the deciding factor after all the obvious effort. Were I in your position, and didn't want all the grief of dealing with tyre kickers, I might be thinking of selling it through a specialist dealer on a commission basis. Let them store it, advertise it and do all the aggravation. Its also probably a bit mentally easier than seeing people pick holes in many years of hard work. If those same people get wind of why you want to sell, that puts them in a stronger negotiating position.
You don't say where you are located, but I may have a suggestion of somebody who might be worth discussing this with. If it is sound and solid and original with documented rebuild history, then this has significant value. If you want to discuss, maybe send me a private message?

I'd suggest popping a message to club member Ike Goss ("leafsprung") at Pangolin 4x4 in Oregon.  He's probably the best-wired-in guy re: the North American market https://pangolin4x4.com/home .

Is this a for sale advertisement or a request to suggest where to sell? If the former we only allow adverts with a price - please avoid allowing bids or we are effectively running a hidden auction free of charge with all the legal risks to the club that involves.
Please restrict comments to recommendations / experiences of where to sell - eg. eBay, Legend, in the forum For Sale section, Classic Cars website or auction houses.

Topic will be locked if evidence that a sale is being negotiated either here or via PM's in order to protect the member and the club.

My understanding was that it is merely a post requesting advice on how and where to sell. My response was solely on that basis with a suggestion that I am aware of one particular trader who might be able to help on a  commission only basis. There is, as far as I am aware, no suggestion that this is an attempt to undermine the rules of the forum.
