Good rods in their time I still have one that I use from time to time, it was my go to bass rod having landed 100s with it.
The rods must be 40/50 yes old I got mine in the 70,s along with a beachcadter.
Like everything it's only worth what someone is prepared to pay for it. I'm sorry I can't give you s price but you could always test it out on eBay.

Adding to Kimbo's comments with which I agree: these are fibreglass rod from 60s or early 70s and will have little value, probably no more than a few pounds at most. Sorry that is not want you wanted to hear. Perhaps worth keeping and giving them an occasional run out

My first double handed salmon rod was a 12ft ABU Svangsta which I landed my first fly caught salmon on.

I tried it last season just for the sake of it. Let's just say it has a very different action to modern rods. 😮😂

I asked in a local tackle shop once about getting it reconditioned and was told that it wouldn't cost too much to get it sorted but that was still far more than the rod was worth. I didn't go any further with that idea.

That's as much as I can tell you.

Abu spinning rods from that era are collectable and some models in good condition can fetch reasonable money on e-bay. Some like the atlantic 403 (blue colour) are still very popular as trolling poker rods and i`ve seen some on e-bay go for 50 or £60 in good condition. Seen the smaller suecia 322 that you`ve got going for around £30 on e-bay. Defo worth listing on e-bay , you never know who might be collecting those rods.
