Collectible or not, it's upto what others are willing to pay for it. Personally, I dont see it as that desirable for collectors. First of all, it looks used. The green bumper is ripped from crashes. The chassis doesn't look complete and is missing some parts. The green anodizing doesnt cover the whole car. Bits of blue does not make it attractive at all. If you are expecting more than 250, good luck.

The bumper is only like that because it was used on my other Evo, this one has never been run. The Chassis and top deck are brand new, havn't even been filed or sealed yet. I know the blue anodizing doesn't help it, but i wanted to make it a complete car. ANd what pieces do you see missing besides the battery bar?

Thanks

Those parts have been on EBAY for a little while because Green isn't nearly as appealing as the blue, even the hardest core Tamiya fans are not chasing after the green parts. Funny how the greens parts are selling for $135 and the same parts in blue will cost you over $200.... What does that tell you? If you are truly interested in selling the car you should market its performance value and not the green bling....
