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...

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....

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

Yes it is still considered a Hot Wheels. Though technically it was suppose to be a cheaper line of cars made to compete with other brands from the day with plastic bases, one color paint and no added chrome. But most did have added tampoprinting. There were only 20 or so castings issued.

I know I keep asking for more photos but would love to see if your base plate is different the castings before and after this blue one. It is the only one that was made in Malaysia that we know of but not sure what other information is included or left off on them! It should also have one large window without the black opaque window insert showing. Do you see anything inside as an interior?

And can someone who has another of these castings or the Incredible Hulk or Street Scrocher version post up their base plates, please?
