Mattel the company that made these little vehicles took extra pains to duplicate the real ones as exactly as they could. They even studied the blue prints so that their model would look as real thing as possible.
Mattel tended to use certain colors in the production of these toys so the colors they seldom used have become really sought after today. One example of that is the hot pink Beach Bomb. Pink wasnít a color that was used except for a few times and so this pink VW bus is now worth up to $70,000 today depending on its condition. I guess the company didnít think kids would like this color as much.
Imagine if you found one still in its package. It would be extremely valuable as a collectors item. Notice the picture of it here to the right. It has two surfboards sticking out the rear window. The tiniest detail was not too much for Mattel. Another name for this Beach Bomb was the RLBB, which means Rear Loader Beach Bomb.
he above photo shows a 1967 custom Camaro. This car is a little beat up because someone played with it so much. Notice the detail to engine and mufflers sticking out from the side. The quality still shows after all the years of hard play. Now this car is in a collection. It wonít be worth as much because of the wear and tear but is still valuable. The best way to find the value your car is to check a price guide or eBay to see what they are selling for.
The two cars in the above photo are missing some tires but still added to a collection. When you are cleaning out your home and attic always check to see if what you figure is garbage might be selling really well on eBay. I just saw a video about an Indian blanket that sold for over one million dollars. The family had it for several generations and just passed it down. It could easily have been discarded but instead it was sold and made the proud owners well off.
I remember hiking around once and came across a tiny abandoned dumping area. There were old bottles and cast iron toys. I wish I had picked them all up and taken them home but instead I just looked and went on my way. I didnít have anything to carry them in but I should have gone there again another day and picked all this stuff up. Since then I have moved away and probably couldnít remember where it was if I returned. I wonder if anyone else has found this hidden treasure yet or if it is still out there waiting for the lucky visitor.
