I just picked up a couple of models at an auction the other day... I plan on building one of them and selling the other two, but was wondering if anyone knew approximately how much these two would be worth ??

I'm gonna build this one... Champion Spark Bug Baja racer...

Thinking of selling these two... but want to know what these might be worth, if anyone has an idea ??

The '58 was just re-issued, so I ouldn't say more than $10--$!5 for the issue you have.

The Barris VW, maybe a little more, but not much.

Do a search on eBay and check the "Completed Items" box in the left hand column to get an idea what others have recently sold for.

You should try trading them for something you would like to build.

I'm sure you can make a deal with someone here.

Its always better to have kits in the stash, than a few measly bucks in your hands.

Nice finds! That VW Bug builds up nice, but the parts need a bit of cleaning and converting. You'll have a blast.

I didn't even know they made either of those Beetle kits. I must be living under a rock. :lol:

I have someone willing to buy the VW Rolls and one wanting to trade... Don't know what I want to do yet...

George: I haven't touched a model in quite some time for the reasons I told you about before... but now I'm getting things organized at my new home and starting to get back to the way I was before... hopefully I will have something to share with you soon :)

I think you guys underestimate the value of the bugs.

I'd say they both are comfortably in the 75$ region. I've recently seen an original Inch Pincher issue go for 100+.

Maybe in ENGLAND Chris, but here, you can find them at most toy shows in the 25 to 45 dollar range. Not really that rare on this side of the pond.

:D;)

they are worth what ever enjoyment you get out of building them or saving them to look at.

they are worth what ever people would be willing to pay for them.

i see a buttload of kits on ebay with price tags that are a bit outrageous and are always there for weeks, months heck maybe even a year later. so if you want to be realistic about a price, just sell them to where you make double what you paid for or if you got a hell of a deal for them, then use your best judgement.
