Live in Ak myself and have owned about 6 Cosworths, have a full Targa and circuit race prepared one and still have a late 87 2.3-16 Done 280 clicks - owned the race car since 1996. K's don't mean much but condition is tops - Provinence and ownership history with receipts absolutely essential for resale value. Values have been around 10-12K with low km models fetching more depending on history. Not as collectable (nor as rare) as an M3 of same vintage and a lot of used import 190E's have devalued the marque - reflecting on the 2.3-16. Seen cars sell for as little as 4K at auction because no-one appreciated it for what it was. Would be worth more across the ditch - maybe wait until it really does become a collectable as it will.
