Interested in purchasing the current complete collection of Auto World NHRA Slot Cars? Check out Frank’s eBay listing for 115 Auto World 4Gear NHRA Drag Racing Slot Cars. All of the Funny Cars, Pro Stocks and Top Fuel Dragsters that have ever been released. I have actually emailed back and forth with Frank a few times and he was kind enough to provide some additional information for me to post here on HO Slot Car Drag Racing. I was actually missing a set on my release list.
Frank is currently asking $6,500 or best offer! If you are interested in purchasing this massive slot car collection send him an email (frankwolfram AT hotmail DOT com), serious inquiries only please. Be sure to tell him you saw his collection here at HO Slot Car Drag Racing!
This is a very impressive collection and would take quite a bit of time to replicate. From my experience over the last several months you could easily find about 70% of these cars on eBay for sale in new or used condition. However there are several of the Pro Racing Dragstrip sets that are very hard to find. The two different Summit Racing Pro Stock sets and the two different Matco Top Fuel Drag Sets specifically I think. I do not see them often or at all, and when you do they fetch several hundred dollars easily. My pick for the 3rd most difficult set to find would be the MAC Tools 5 Car set. I have only seen this set come up for sale twice in the last several months.
The auction listing will eventually end so here are the auction details and photos.
Up for Buy It Now is my complete collection of Auto World 4 Gear NHRA Drag Cars in brand new or new, sealed condition.
This is it!…Every Auto World NHRA drag car made to date since they started in 2010…every NHRA dragstrip set car, every NHRA regular release, every Legends of the Quarter Mile NHRA 4 Gear release. A total of 112 individual vehicles including 41 regular releases, 16 Legends of the Quarter Mile, 2 Auto World exclusives, 46 dragstrip set cars, 5 car Mac Tools set and 2 vehicles in the Napa Transporter/Car set. I’ve got a pre-order on the 3 car rail dragster release coming at the end of the month and can include those 3 as well when I receive them or will update the listing then.
It took me over two years of nationwide internet and hobby shop searching to assemble the collection. None of the sealed cars were opened and the set cars that were originally packed only in bubble wrap from the factory have never touched a track. I collected two full sets of everything, one new but opened and one new sealed, I’m keeping the opened set as I plan to display mine open once my dragstrip is put back in operation (remodeling). I stopped counting after spending over $5000.00 for each collection in original retail price or more, not even counting tax, shipping, time and mileage. Prices have increased steadily since and with limited availability I would not want to start again now. I’m selling the collection to fund some more remodeling and car projects and figured, why keep them boxed up stored away?
The listing is limited to 12 pictures, the first 2 are the entire collection, the other 10 are detail. If you need any more views please contact me, I’d be glad to provide. If you haven’t researched or viewed the cars personally, set cars that also had regular release same driver/cars are different, usually in subtle decal numbers or graphics differences.
Important: I did not collect the iWheels versions of the Legends cars, I believe they made 8 over the last two releases. I thought they were dumb and missed the point of replicating real NHRA drag cars. Also, the 3 car Thunderjet Legends of the Quarter Mile release is not included, that set is still readily available for $80.00 shipped. I have them if it is a deal breaker, I just kept them out because the scale doesn’t match the 4 Gear cars. The Summit release 9 car does not have the outer hanger box as pictured, the cube is sealed, I bought it that way, I can’t figure out why or where those are being hoarded. The collection is listed elsewhere and I reserve the right to end listing early.
Plan to display open and rather have opened regular releases still with original packaging? Contact me to discuss. Also, I’m not very interested in breaking up the collection but could consider selling either the regular releases or set cars as separate lots, make an offer. Already started your collection and want to buy this? I’ll buy your new, sealed, unused cars.
Shipping, overly careful packing and full insurance is free in the continental US and to the eBay International Shipping center, others please inquire. Local pickup and viewing is welcomed.
