This car is from 1992 (14 years old).

It was made this way. If I added detail to the car, the value would decrease.

Red Test Shots made by RC2 in 1/64 scale aren't detailed either, but they are highly collectable and sell for big bucks.

Redline Hot Wheels from 1968 aren't detailed either, but they are highly sought after. Try finding a price for a Hot Wheels Beach Bomb ($$$$$$).

Current diecast cars are very detailed compared to diecast cars that were made as little as 10 years ago.

Found this one on their page:



It seems that the never versions are more detailed. But as you said Stutz, there isn't a strong connection between details and value. I like your black/gold combination!

I think it looks fine the way it is. It has a certain "look" to it that too may details would destroy.

The new Brooklins are a big improvement in details! Just like 1/64 the orignal Topper cars made by JL, the older, less detailed cars are more collectible and have a higher value.

The early Brooklins which were made in Canada, instead of England, where they are made now are not that detailed, but are very expensive to buy.

Cool - that black Eldo Brougham looks like the ultimate luxury ride. IMO it's the only car that deserves to have gold trim! One of my all-time dream cars. Thanks for posting the special version.
