Found a complete kit in an antique shop. It's molded in red, not green, and the vinyl tires are white. What is a good price for this kit? I see one on EBay right now for 150 which isn't in as nice a shape as the one I stumbled across.

Thanks

Mark

I just looked at a buy it now for $75, and one that is being bid on for $49. They're at Hobby Lobby now too, if they're selling for $75, with the coupon you can get it for $45.

This one has the electric motor in it. Does that come in the re-issues?

Thanks for your time

the thing is, I doubt that one you saw actually sold for 150, maybe that's what the owner wanted. but a search of completed auctions will show a more true value...around 50$. these cars were issued in many many reissues down through the years and they all (Lindberg) have the same parts pretty much. some of those parts are pretty nice though: for instance the slicks look a whole lot better than the Big T etc slicks did.

Thing is it is worth whatever someone is willing to pay for it you might get a higher then normal sell price or lower it all depends
