since its nib and u have the box and tis in amazing condition, id say its about $150-$200

i have '94 rustler.. its been used, but when it was in more decent condition, i couldnt even get $100 in rtr form... =/ so i just kept it

99% of all the new pede parts fit on it

only things that dont are the bearings.. thats it lol these use 5x8x2.5mm bearings(i got a set for mine off ebay for $8 shipped)

newer ones use 5x11x2.5mm

imho

preserve that body.. the body is worth a lot.. its hard to find a mint condition f150 like that
ive been searching for the '94 rustler f150 body for years.. and have yet to find one in decent condition, let alone unpainted and bnip
collectors would pay good money for that

you can still run it.. because if it wasnt for that body and the car being in mint condition, its worth as much as a used pede nowadays
its a great basher.. and u get the legit black chassis, not the crappy grey stuff traxxas provides

I was planning on saving the original body and wheels, and buying new wheels and body.

Man, those things are tough. I have one that is in awful shape, and probably still runs. Been planning on bringing it back out from my folks basement where it's been sitting for about ten years. That sticker sheet brings back memories- used to actually race (and do OK) with one of the original rustlers. Still have about half of that sticker sheet.

I'd keep it, get your son a nice newer stampede to beat on IT would be a shame to beat on a classis like that.

Wow, those were the days.

I remember when i was 13, I bought myself a kit stampede. I sat at the table all day and built it when it arrived. I was sooo excited to run it and it was a blast to build. It was also as durable as they come. I still have a stampede now, but its not the old kit version. Wish i had kept the one that i personally built, but its gone now The one i have now is brushless and is a lot of fun to drive. My wife has a brushed one that she runs too and she really like it. They really are great trucks

That said, I really doubt its worth much. That body isnt an F-150 as far as i know. Sure never looked like one to me anyways. lol I dont think anything on it is a real collectors item, but it is rare to find a kit stampede like that anymore, so you never know. If your son would run it though, id put it together and let him have at it.

Keep it boxed for another 20 years. Stampedes are cheap, you can get a roller for your son for $50 or less.

I saw one just like it go for about $100 or so on eBay, which is about what any other complete 1st gen Stampede goes for. And you can definitely pick up rollers super cheap. I bought a complete truck and sold the electronics (Novak brushless) and ended up with a $40 roller.
