The Lime Camaro and standard Green Mustang are both some of the most desirable colors of these particular bodies. With T-Jets it's all about colors. If that Camaro was Tan it would be worth maybe $75 in the blister. In Lime , which is rare to find in the blister, who knows? Maybe three to four hundred or more just by itself. Same for the Mustang, Red is very common, that Green is rare.

 

These also have VSP which are virgin screw posts, never been screwed which adds to the value considerably. I kid you not.

 

Would not be surprised if they topped a grand for the three.

Thanks, Joe, didn't realize it was to that point... and I knew about the VSPs, but again, not to that point! 
 
Hmm, maybe I should go take another look at my T-Jets...

Very nice! How did they make it all way France and not be opened?

 

Good luck.

I'm just an observer, SJJ - started with T-Jets, but not really a collector of them - and I definitely don't collect colors. 

 

Was just curious why this went so high...
