I see them on eBay with first bid at $87. I will go that route if I have to. Or I will just buy a nice new box. Please let me know what you have. I would like to see pics and sizes.

Thanks,

Chris

Chris, I have this box for sale. It is a very nice box and has the "brass" corners. It will hold up to 16 cars. Also included are all the tire tubes with the tires and wheels inside although most tires have hardened, Looking to get as close to $150 as I can. I am here on Long Island and you can pick it up anytime. This will save you shipping which usually runs about $20 or more on these big boxes. PM me if you like. ]

If anyone else has interest let me know . Although I will ship it I prefer the buyer to pick it up. Thanks

Hi Chris,

I have a Hoffman Clone made by Webster Boxes that I'd like to sell. It has a removeable drop down front door to access the 2 drawers with 4 compartments each, and an open storage area at the bottom. The top opens to 4 more compartments built in to the box. It's 15" wide, 10" deep, and 14"tall.

The box is in good shape. It has a dark finish with brass corners. I'd like to get $75.00 plus shipping for it. I can send you some pics if you're interested.


Thanks

Please buy boxes from Roger at Mid-America so they will be in your workroom instead of sitting around the raceway. :laugh2:
