As a toy brand that once swept the world, the classic cars of Hot Wheels are still worth a fortune today. Check out these best value models and see if you have one!
This hot pink Beach Bomb model from 1969 is the king of Hot Wheels and is worth a whopping $150,000! Only two side-mounted surfboards with full-length sunroof models were produced, which is probably why they are so precious.
Although the AMC Gremlin is considered one of the worst cars of all time, its Hot Wheels version, Open Fire, is quite valuable. One 1972 green Open Fire model can fetch up to $4,000. Guess it reminds people of the old days of "pet rocks, shag rugs, and platform shoes."
This dazzling Hot Wheels car was designed in 2008 to honor the brand's 40th anniversary. The entire car was made of 18k white gold and was encrusted in diamonds. It was then sold at auction for $140,000, with the proceeds going to the Big Brothers Big Sisters charity.
Due to its mass production, a red Ferrari 312P from 1970 with a black interior is very common. However, if you happen to have one with a white interior, it will make a difference and raise the price of the car to $5,000. Go check out the interior of your Hot Wheels Ferrari!
Suppose you happen to own this Brown Custom Charger with a white interior; congratulations! You may be holding $13,000 right now! Made between 1969 and 1971, only a few are known to exist, making the version both rare and expensive.
Produced during the first 10 years of Hot Wheels cars, this charming 1971 Purple Oldsmobile features the iconic redline tires. As one of the rarest early models, this purple car is worth up to $12,000.
While this red Oldsmobile isn't as precious as the purple one, it's still relatively rare and worth $4,000. This model was never brought to market, which is why it is so valuable.
As one of the original launch models of the Hot Wheels Sweet Sixteen set, The Beatnik Bandit from 1968 is the most valuable model. This pink one in the picture is adored by the toymaker and can fetch its owner a total of $5,000.
This blue Rodger Dodger model was produced in limited quantities; therefore, it is much more valuable than other models. If you have such a model in good condition, you can earn up to $3,000 today.
This Spectralflame Bye Focal model was made in 1971 in shades including blue, magenta, and purple. The flawless purple version is precious, at $6,000, because it usually cracks and shatters more easily than other versions.
If you find this red Hot Wheels Python with the original Cheetah base nameplate in your collection, you will have $6,000 to contribute to a luxury vacation of your choice!
With fewer than 12 remaining in the world, this 1969 Brown '31 Woody model is scarce and valuable. If you're lucky enough to have one in your collection, you will likely cash out $8,000!
This British model was made to commemorate the sponsorship deal with race car driver Ed Shaver. With the Ed Shaver decal, this blue AMX can be sold for about $10,000. Do check your collection because without the "Ed Shaver" decal, it's just an ordinary nice car.
As the first transition from concept to production, the 1968 Custom Camaro was special for Hot Wheels. Although the model later had more colors applied, the original ones were covered in white enamel. This first collectible car is now worth $3,000, and if you own one, you're a real Hot Wheels fan!
It's surprising that this 1969 red baron model is on the list since it is one of Hot Wheels' most high-profile models. However, it is the Baron model with black interior that is common; those with white interiors are rare and worth $3,500.
Hot Wheels fans may be unfamiliar with Mad Maverick, but you should immediately recognize it when you hear the name Mighty Maverick. The original version of "Mad Maverick" can reach a price of $15,000. To find out if you have this edition in your collection, simply check the nameplate on the bottom of your car.
Manufactured in 1968, this lime-coated Over Chrome Camaro is rare and is primarily used in advertising. It is worth noting that the quality of this typical model is superior to other models because of the use of antifreeze materials. With only 20 models built, this Camaro will cost $25,000.
This 1968 Strawberry Over Chrome Mustang was designed for advertising and never sold, which makes it even more special. Only two models of Over Chrome Cars were made, and they are now worth $40,000 each.
The Z-Whiz car was the first Hot Wheels model imported from Japan and was produced from 1977 to 1984. Although the toy cars are commonly sold in green and silver, it is the white Z-Whiz that can fetch you $3,000.
This 1968 brown Custom Camaro is also very rare and precious because it wasn't designed for consumers. If you're lucky enough to own a brown Custo Camaro with a white interior, you'll be sitting on $3,000.
