Check eBay! I saw an EMPTY box sell for $40. It was the 1966 issue Altered Wheelbase Falcon funny Car.

If it's a low production model or of some personal value I never break the seal..the the general run of the mill Diecast of high production numbers the box goes in the trash and the car on the shelf.

I have ALL the boxes for my 1:18 and 1:24 scales... right back to my first one (Grabber Orange 1970 Boss 302). All stored away nice and safe. Some of my limited editions are still sealed in their original boxes, actually.

ALWAYS KEEP THE BOXES!!!
