    Hi All, I have a 1977 Cox .049 R/C Dune Buggy and cannot seem to find one anywhere to determine it's value. All I seem to find on the net are the non R/C versions. Anyone have one of the or know where I can find more information on them would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks!

    John

    well actualy he could get alot of money because it is old and it could be a collectable. If it is not so beat up then it might be worth somthing but if its kinda in bad shape it probly wojnt be worth much then

    John,

    I found a timeline chart on the web for various Cox vehicles.

    http://www.mh-aerotools.de/airfoils/cox_timetable_2.htm

    If I read the chart right, you R/C dune buggy dates back to the late 60's and early 70's. eBay seems to be your best bet for selling as several collectors are sure to snap this up as long as the condition is good.

    I have a non-R/C Cox Sandblaster myself and had a blast running this one years ago. I also have another Cox R/C .049 street racer but can't remember what the heck it was called.

    Cardmodel of "Anlasswagen" 1/33 of german airforce WWII

    I suggested eBay as the most likely place to sell, but after doing a search on "Cox" I am finding that these products can be bought fairly cheap.

    There is already a mint looking Cox .049 buggy on eBay and the price is still very low. Look for item #3192739205, item #3193292608 or item #3192744616 for a few nice examples.

    Thanks for all the info guys! I purchased my buggy in 1977 or '78 and ordered it straight from Cox with the R/C steering controls installed. It was a very rare option and that time which may explain why another cannot be found. Its in good shape, no flat tires, etc. The .049 motor doeas not have the pull start but the flywheeel as the longer starter would hit the R/C unit which fills the chassis compartment. Anyone know if Cox is still in business? I thought about contacting them but it seems they are non existent. As always your any advice is greatly appreciated!
