Keep checking ebay until the cars show up on there and see what they sell for.

These seem to be from the late 80's. Spare parts will be the biggest problem if you run it. Serpent parts are hard to find for models only a couple of years old so these will almost be imposible. It would make a nice display model. What sort of price are you look for ??

Its hard to say what its worth.. there isnt a big market here in the USA for old cars like this. At least, thats what ive found. The fact that its new with box pushes it into a collector status.

I just bought a complete sprint 6000 with 7 sets of tyres, 2 spare rolling chassis, starter box, spare engines, an airtronics radio and a mountain of spare parts for $250.

check out ebay item number 280469310442.That is the auction i mention.

It was listed on ebay for $250 with a reserve, but nobody bid on it, I had to pick it up from his house, which luckily he was local.



So i would say its value is really based upon whatever somebody was to give you for it.

I would be interested in buying it though. I already have alot of tyres and spare parts for it.

I had one, it came out in 1991 and had a shorter wheelbase than previous Sprint models. The pushrod was unique but finally everyone switched back to the normal setup.

Maybe you can get 100-200 dollar for it but these cars are not special.
