If you still have your early Hot Wheels Cars

from childhood and are thinking about

selling them,

you've come to the right place


I am a leading buyer, seller and collector of early "Redline" Hot Wheels cars.

Having bought and sold thousands of early Hot Wheels over the last 14 years, I have always put the seller first and made sure that they got a fair price for their cars.

I like to buy early "Redline" Hot Wheels, made by Mattel Toys in the 60's and 70's and I have built a large customer database of over 1,000 collectors who are looking for particular cars.

Do you have true "Redline" Hot Wheels?

These earliest of Hot Wheels cars (produced between 1968 and 1977) are called Hot Wheels because of the red "stripe" on the outside wall of the tires.

Redline tires were the hot thing to have on your 60's muscle cars! (and on your Hot Wheels, too!)

(Note: In recent years, Mattel re-issued several of the original Hot Wheels and there are a lot of similarities between the originals and the re-issues, including the copyright date on the base, which is NOT the same as the date the car was issued. The re-issues will never reach the values that the originals have reached. The originals will usually say either "USA" or "Hong Kong" on the base, as that is where they were manufactured in the '60s and '70s. More recent reissues will say "China", "Malaysia" or "Thailand" on the base)

I also will often buy the Hot Wheels Orange Track accessories, Sizzlers, Rrrumblers, Chopcycles, Hot Wheels store displays, catalogs, Mattel Employee memorabilia, Prototypes/Pre-production items and other Hot Wheels / Mattel related memorabilia!

Basically, if it has anything to do with Redline Hot Wheels from the 60s and 70s - I'm interested - either for my own collection or for my hundreds of collector friends who are looking for certain cars for their collection!

These are the toy cars I grew up playing with and now, as an adult, they bring back great memories and have actually become sort of an obsession!

Original "Redline" Hot Wheels cars were made between 1968 and 1977. They feature bright, shiny metallic paint in a variety of colors, red striped mag wheels, and a muscle car "rake". (ie: the car sits higher in the rear than in the front)

You might be surprised at how much I'll pay you for some of the rarer versions!

So, you've made the decision that it's time to sell your childhood toys - and you want to be sure that:

A. You get a good price for them, and

B. You deal with an honest person who will keep their word.

Well, you basically have two options:

1. Sell them yourself, one at a time on the Internet, or

2. Sell them as one large lot, to a Hot Wheels collector.

Let's look at each option to see the good and the bad about them...


Sell your Hot Wheels yourself, one by one on eBay

With this option, be prepared to take on a lot of work, hassles and time.

Let's say that you decide to sell them, one at a time, on eBay.


1. You will first have to do some research to determine what your Hot Wheels are worth, find a Hot Wheels Price Guide or determine the prices of Redline Hot Wheels some other way.

2. You will pay listing fees, final value fees, and PayPal fees, along with possibly other fees.

3. You will be responsible for taking clear, focused pictures, from various angles of each car.

(50 cars x 4 pictures each = 200 images)

4. You will then need to crop your pictures, edit your pictures and resize your 150 pictures to fit your auction listings.

5. You will need to find an image hosting service to host your images - another expense. (or use eBay's service which tacks on additional fees)

6. You will then write a description of each of your cars, explaining all of the flaws, such as darkening, toning, chips, scratches, pinpoints, tarnish, broken or missing parts and corrosion.

7. You will then list each item individually and begin to answer e-mail questions about your cars - usually from savvy collectors. (This means you must have some knowledge of these cars, if you want to get the most for them)

8. Once the auctions are over, you will be expected to ship each car promptly (within a few days of payment) and carefully, so that the car arrives at your buyer's home with no additional wear or damage from the time it was photographed.

9. Then you begin to deal with the returned cars.

This happens if, for example, you have failed to disclosed an important fact about the car - usually not your fault, not being a collector yourself - and the buyer is unhappy and wants their money back.

(Collectors are a picky bunch, and often get angry when a car is "not as described" - this can result in negative feedbacks on eBay)

At this point you can either negotiate some kind of partial refund or a full refund, in which case you would have to re-list the car and start all over again.

But doing it this way, you will get more money than with the second option - generally about 35% to 50% more. Whew! Just thinking about it gets me tired!

Let's look at the second option...

Selling your Hot Wheels as a lot, to Cash 4 Hot Wheels

This option is quick, simple and painless!


(If you live in Southern California, I can often make arrangements to meet you in person!)

When sending pictures, I prefer individual shots, 3/4 angle view, close up, of each car - unless there are over 40 cars, then small groups of cars is o.k.)

2. If you have a price in mind for the whole lot, let me know - that might save both of us a lot of time... If your price makes sense - I can get cash to you immediately!

3. Next, I send you CASH, in the form of a Postal Money Order (or Cashier's Check for larger collections) and then you send me the cars!

(recently, I've started using Escrow.com as a great way to protect you and me, especially for larger collections)

And that's it!

Steps 4. through 8. You can now go and spend the money, invest the money or take a trip with the money!

It's up to you... you've just turned your Hot Wheels into CASH!
