Definitely got your $30.00 worth. But as you note what to do with them. Nothing to much stands our for me - other than the Snake Funny Car, red Momo Datsun and the Getty Tanker truck in the tub.


There is a market for nearly everything you have shown so far, but as you look at the threads above it will be up to you how much time and effort you put in to them. And how many of those collectors are near to you.

Halloween is coming up....

Garage Sale

If you can do a large photo of everything in the tub or seperated into brands we can give a better account of what ever else is in there...

The boxed item may also be of value. Is it sealed? If open is it complete?
Everything is sealed. Poorly stored, literally thrown in the tub and looks like it was stored in a garden shed. I'll go though it this weekend hopefully. Theres enough there to keep me happy, the rest maybe ebay loose sets, Grandkids will probably gobble up the star wars and FF 😊

Depending on how much work you want to put in, there are several pieces that can get you a good return.
Depending on the color of the Classics Camaro, if it is red, there are a few varies that are pretty good. There is a painted motor, another one that has a chrome grill and unpainted motor black grill.
The Datsun MOMO is a good one that can have good return.
The Charger R/R iD
The Buick Riviera has a few varies that could get something for you. There is a black painted hood and one that isn't.
And the Final Run Mercedes.
Depending on the card condition, the castings that have Real Riders may get you something.
Like I said, it depends what you want to do and the effort.

Good info ,Thanx! I'll do a little research on some. I've been thinking of getting into some wheel swaps, some of the Real Riders look like good victims 😊 Never a problem getting rid of want l dont want, kids, charity, freinds etc 😊

Most of your carded premiums are good for wheel donors - for you or to customizers.

The stage frights nearly double your investment by themselves. And the green Datsun adds to it as well.

Check out the Matchboxes too. Looks like the '57 Chevy is the opening front tilting version and the brown jag maybe a high value one as well, IIRC.

There may also be some fantasy castings lurking in the rest of the bunch if you want to do a similar photo of the left overs. Some of them stealthy go for some good coin because of their rarity....

Is the grey Z 28 (?) a custom and/or another brand of diecast.
I mistakenly took them to storage so l cant double check right now.

Yes, the 57 chev has opening hood. I kept the Jag cause it reminded me of mine from childhood. Before 1968, Matchbox was the thing......50 cents each 🤪

When you get them back and have some time

in the first picture group
What brand is the red porsche 959
The pinker 959 and the shark byte are color changers.
The yellow boss 302 IIRC maybe an exclusive.
You dont see that blue van that often!
What is the blue casting behind it.

Pic #2
The Getty Tanker is probably worth looking up
Along with the fire fighting equipment in this photo and those in photo 3
You already pulled the Large Charge/SilverBullet/Aeroflash and the Ferrari
The greenlight pace car might be worth looking into

Pic #3
Add the construction pieces to the list of check their values out
