I have an option to pick these up, maybe cheap. I don't know much about HO, so can anyone chime in? I realize that value is relative, but what do you think I should pay?

If it is orange, it is rare, yellow not so much, can really see the color clearly.

I have no idea what they are worth. But I used to love my Model A when I was a kid. Mine was Lime Green.

For pricing, I would go do a search for completed auctions on eBay.

Gil,

Your pic is quite small. Can you post a larger version?

Hopefully this is bigger. Any ideas about the Mustang?

And before I forget, thanks everyone for the help. I know I can always come here for great info!

I think that helps, Gill. I cropped it for you.

I did some eBay completed sales searches; looks like the Model A has been going for $25-30.

Guess I will pass on these, as by the time I pay a buyers premium, sales tax, and gas for the round trip it won't be worth it.

Thanks all for the advice!

The Mustang is worth about $45-$55. That is why I said if both are in good condition about $90.

Thanks for the clarification, I just read it wrong. It would not have worked out regardless as I wound up working late until after the auction had ended.

Again, I appreciate everyone's help and will be back with more unanswerable questions :)
