Hi all,
What is this 1977 race car worth. Front end opens up looks good
Thanks
Unfortunately not a lot - Hot Wheels use the same base on all their funny cars, so the 1977 date is when that part was first used. That's why none of them have the model name underneath.
It's not especially old I'm afraid, 2003 in that colour according to wiki (Probe funny car)

Hi Bunglebus,
Thanks for the reply. Purchased a some from eBay of similar cars for my Gran son as we went to VW action & he loved the cars racing. Just thought they may be to good to crash up !!! But he'll have fun especially as they open up
Cheers Dave

Tesco have finally got new Matchbox in. A lot of the good stuff had already gone, but I got these two

However, this does mean yet again we've missed a case - this is mix 6, we never saw 5 on the shelves, or 2, so we didn't get the MK1 Capri or the Beetle. It really is a shit situation with only Tesco allowed to sell them, and Mattel deciding there are no carry overs between cases, so if we don't get a case, tough luck.

Yes there was a previous release that's similar. You had to be quick off the mark to get the Mr Bean one, they were sold almost as soon as they arrived in Tesco

Wow, did you just take one of each?
Slim pickings for me lately. I picked up the grey bone shaker last week, but that's it. I really want the gulf 356, but am striking out.
I was really pleased to see the Matchbox cars in a card box in one shop. Less plastic waste I thought. Bought the 181 trekker, and would you believe it's in a plastic wrapper inside the box! It's not food, it doesn't need to be kept fresh! Sheesh!

I may have picked up a few spares :LOL:

I've found a few of those Matchbox...boxes in the past, with the inner bag.Less waste but easier to pinch sadly

Funny enough Mattel are making steps to reduce waste and use recycled materials
