Hi folks,

 

I've stumbled across these unbuilt 1/32 Cox slot cars. Cheetah and GT both still sealed with decal sheet as well as promo leaflet.

 

As I'm not much of a "unbuilt" collector I'm thinking of selling these again.

 

Where would be the best sites to market these and what would be a reasonable price for seller as well as buyer?

 

Any comments welcome and appreciated.

I am keen on the Cheetah kit. Once you get a price in mind please PM me and we can discuss terms.

 

Regards,

 

John

 

PS: As for a marketplace... this forum is a good place to start.

Forget fishing around for prices. They are only worth what someone is willing to pay for them. Put them up for best offer.

 

I see you fishing on Facebook as well. Just put it up here for best offer. Most Facebook pages make you list a price.

Hey Joe, thanks, did not know I was allowed to advertise something to sell on the blog. I totally agree that something is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it but I was hoping of getting a ballpark figure because I might decide to rather keep them.

 

Thanks for the comment anyways.

Marius,

 

These kits are undesirable and have little value. :rolleyes:  But I am willing to give you $25 each.  :whistle3:

:D

Marius,

 

Please post to let us know what they sold for, once the listings end.

Better yet, post a link to the auction.

 

Even though they are 1/32, I would list under 1/24 pre-'70 only because it gets more traffic.
