Hello, my name is Marcus.
Whether you need a solicitor is a matter for you - although if successful you are unlikely to secure the costs of doing so back as it is a small claim.
What is the value of the car?
If you are not selling as a dealer then as long as you have not misled or expressly made a false comment then you are likely to be safe as it was a private sale and as you say sold as seen.
The only time with a private sale a purchaser would have any redress is if you on the advert or during the sale made any comments that were relied upon by the purchaser that transpired to be untrue - being something the purchaser relied upon.
As you described the matter that does not seem to be the case.
