Of all the car model-kits mentioned in this thread...to me, the most rare must be the Premiere Studebaker Champ pickup as I'd never even heard about it until this very day!!!!! I'd love to see a picture of it!
The Chevy 1911 is truly a rare one, but I do have one of them and have seen about a handful for sale on the 'bay over the past 15 years.
The Uncertain T, one of the coolest showrods to my knowledge, is also quite rare, but I have three gluebombs in my basement and they are poppin' up on the bay several times a year!
The 1956, or so, Lincoln Premiere by Ideal is also quite rare but I've bought one and seen at least two more for sale since 1998 on the 'bay so they're rare, but not THAT rare IMHO.
The 1924-26 Hanomag Kommisbrot may be rare in the US, but not in Europe. I have 2-3 of them and they can often be found on the German Ebay at fair prices.
I believe the most rare kit in my collection is a military DKW Munga. The scale is "about 1/25" and it was produced by some eastern europe manufactor, can't recall the name right now. It's MIB but will most likely be built one of these days. I've NEVER seen another one of that DKW Kit !!!!!!

Another rare one is the Premiere Corvair Rampside pickup. I've never seen one in person. Premier did some interesting stuff early on that wasn't bad proportion wise. I'd love to know where they went wrong! Here's their Kaiser Darren that I picked up recently. It was in a dealers junk box!

I am not sure this is the rarest but it tends to cost the most. It is 1/8 scale.

And, speaking of rare kits....here's one You don't see to often:
Box says scale 1/24 but I'd say about 1/28 or so would be more accurate! The body is totally out of proportions and the multipiece-type. from a few yards distance and using A LOT OF IMAGINATION it looks like a Mercedes...LOL!
