We Buy Model Collections

We’re always interested in buying 1/43 scale Ferrari factory build model car collections, large or small. We prefer to buy collections that include a high percentage of Ferrari cars produced from the ’50’s through the ’70’s but will consider newer ones as well. You may send an overview of the collection via email (email address at bottom of page) so we can let you know if we would likely be interested. You can use the following guidelines to help you prepare a list.

Any format is acceptable when submitting a list of models, you wish to sell, whether it be typed, in Excel, MS Word, or handwritten. If you already have a list prepared there’s no need to revamp it, your list will be fine. If you know how much you would like for the collection, please include that information as well, otherwise we can make you an offer.

When preparing a list, it’s not necessary to write history about each model, just a brief description, brand, catalog number is fine. We don’t expect you to check every part of every model, we just ask that you be as forthright as you can regarding imperfections. Our offer will be based on the descriptions you provide, and most often the amount paid will match the offer precisely. We don’t nitpick, but if upon inspection we find numerous discrepancies from the descriptions that were provided, an adjustment to the offer would obviously be necessary so that it coincides with the actual condition.

Photos are helpful, A few group shots along with select close-ups are very beneficial, especially for older production models.

Please state:

  • Manufacturer and catalog number
  • Year (if known)
  • Is it factory complete, all packing and certificates, or open?
  • Is the original box included?
  • Condition – please note if it is complete and if it is missing parts, loose windshield posts or other imperfections. Please note, too, if the box or decals are not good.
