Ramrod's Disorganised Diecast Sale

Recommended Posts

I've emptied two boxes of small-scale cars and I'm making progress with some of the requests.  Within the week some of you will be getting PMs containing photos.  I've uncovered Matchbox, Husky, Corgi Juniors, Majorette, Hot Wheels, Dublo Dinky and some obscure makes.  Mostly these are American cars, as you might expect from me, but there are others.

You've got my interest with that mention of Dublo Dinky. Waiting with baited breath to see what gems you unearth.

I've just realised that the 1/18 Mercedes (500K, not 540 as I previously thought) is missing a sidelamp off one front wing.  I'll offer it post-free to adjust for that.

 

Also: those of you who have asked for "Fords:" so far I've unpacked a selection of American Fords, but not much English stock.  Are you interested in pickups and Torinos?  Would you be interested in Lincolns and Mercurys too?  Given that they were US Ford's luxury lines...

This should give you an idea of the scale of this exercise; there are still boxes to unpack but some of them may need a bit of concentrated searching.

So you can see what I'm up against!  Not only is this the bulk of a lifetime of collecting, but as adulthood loomed in the 70s and 80s I didn't stop buying.  There are now too many to give me pleasure, so at least 90% of the collection is available.

Wow Eddy, thats some collection! What has already caught my eye is the Black 90s Ford Explorer (?) towards the back on first few pics and the Yellow Ford Transit. The White (and also Black) stretch Lincoln Town car next to the Yellow Mustang is another that interests me. White Black and Gold Mercury Sable wagons and the Black Merc ML are also interesting....

Sign me up for any spare Majorettes Eddie!

 

80s/90s Matchbox and Corgi stuff would be nice to see a list of too, or pics... starting to build Junior's collection.

 

Thats what I'm telling myself anyway...

I think you're a bit late to the party with the Majorettes, Andy (there's a sentence the wife had better not read!) but I'm absolutely certain I can help you out with Junior's collection.

      Lads, lads, lads. Its been ages since I bought a thing, and I LOVE BUYING THINGS. I couldn’t sleep last night, for instance. 
      I feel great because buying vehicles SOLVES ALL OF LIFE’S PROBLEMS (apart from parking permits). 
      Anyway, I just agreed to buy a thing, with collection commencing today or tomorrow. 
       
      In the meantime, let’s spy on the vendors house on street view shall we? My little bundle of joy is tucked in behind that rather tasty 164.

      1998 SUBARU IMPREZA NON-TURBO AWD MANUAL ESTATE WITH ROOF BARS AND MASSIVE FOGLIGHTS FOR DOOM SCENARIOS
      Bought this off Bramz last month, done a few hundred miles in it.  Perfectly reliable, school run kaos etc
      But had some sudden and big household bills loom, so having a big sell-off

      MOT is only to end of this month though. But everything works - all windows, no dash warnings; it's been a handy and hunky dory motor car.  Interior tidy.  Exterior pretty clean, bar the odd knock and scuff and arch bubble.  It's not a shed by any means.
      History file though up to a point, recent bills for service items, but cambelt roulette.  132k.  Tyres are about 18 months old, but they are budget ditchfinders.  I intended to keep it, wanted this exact spec for years, but will have to let it go after all.
      It will need that dicky front caliper replacing as the stickiness comes back after a few days after freeing it off.  Discs look to have little time left on them too.  Bonus is being the non-Turbo it has drums on the rear.  Synchromesh scratchy when cold, clutch feels a bit crunchy action but plenty of meat there
      Bonuses are: it's green, it's the estate, excellent heater, it's AWD for snowzombievirus kaos, got insurance cover it on classic multicar policy (Hagerty) as now it's old enough 1998
      I just need to get my money back.  It owes me 400 notes.  Can go today
      Yes, the number plate is now fixed properly

      Located M1 corridor Watford <> Luton
      £7 a ticket or 3 for £20
      Bargain.
      I'm keeping the Alfa 156 Wagon for now

      Well, OK, just a few brochures for sale, after having sorted through my pile over Christmas.
       
      The postage price will vary according to weight, so the prices below exclude postage - we'll sort this out in PMs. Obviously, if anyone wants more than one, I'll send them together. All are in excellent condition, with some very minor age related creases.

      Before wasting anyone's time this car is not roadworthy, and just outside Edinburgh - it is however very cheap. If this sounds of interest then read on....
       
      This is your chance to save my project Bini from the scrappy, or worse still, Facebook Marketplace.
      Kind of testing the water really (I hate when people say that in an advert!) but an impending house move and requiring the garage for other stuff during renovations of said new house plus general lack of time and enthusiasm means the sensible thing to do is get shot of it, and in so doing I am admitting failure that I've not been able to rescue this fine little car.
      This is roughly what it looks like:

      I say roughly because the stripes are gone and replaced with racing roundels on the bonnet and doors and a single stripe on the bonnet - which in my opinion looks awesome.
      Bodily it's in excellent condition with no rust or dings however have a look at the MOT fail sheet,  scroll down if you can't be bothered looking it up - this all still needs doing however I do have new trackrod ends, ball joints, top mounts plus discs and pads which can be thrown in for a fair offer (cost me £200 from ECP)
      Now the catch is that the lower nearside suspension bolt has sheared in-situ and the lower ball joint nut is butchered in a failed attempt to remove, this is the primary reason for me throwing in the towel.
      As far as I can tell the engine is good as is the gearbox however I've only driven it 10miles since I bought it last April so absolutely no guarantees offered or implied - it has been garaged all that time and occasionally run up and down the drive.
      Comes with a good wad of history including receipts for recon gearbox and new PAS pump around 40k miles ago.
      The eagle-eyed among you will also spot a mileage discrepancy in the MOT history this is due to a change in speedo unit which has now been changed once more to one with roughly the correct mileage which is somewhere around 130k, of course no guarantees can be offered or implied.
      It starts, drives and stops but would obviously need trailered away.
      I'm just outside Edinburgh which I know limits my market on here for a non-roadworthy car but I'd rather it went to a good home and went back on the road than face the pain of trying to flog it elsewhere.
      If anyone is seriously interested in giving this poor little Bini a good home give me a shout, any offers of 'some money' will be considered to get it out of my way. Obviously I'd like to recover some of my 'investment' if possible but I also appreciate that MOT'd Binis are dirt cheap at the moment.
      Not sure if there is an appetite for Roffl-ing a non-roadworthy car but that may be an option if there is enough interest.
