COX ENGINE IDENTIFICATION???

Post  Scotty68 on Sat Aug 25, 2018 5:29 am

Hi Everybody, I am new to the site and wet behind the ears as far as Cox engines are concerned so please be patient with me. : )
    I have recently come into A BUNCH of Cox engines (somewhere in the neighborhood of 200) and I know very little about the different sizes and models of the brand. I have posted several pictures of different models that I have noticed just picking through the surface layer. If you could help me identify what size these are and what model, that would be awesome. I will most likely be listing the vast majority of them for sale in the near future. Trust me when I say I have plenty to go around. Thanks for any assistance you may provide.
Scotty68
Sorry my pictures are all out of order but I don't know how to fix it. I'll do better in the future.

You can go to this web link to learn more details about the engines / names I have listed per your pic.
PM me for price on the Queen Bee .074 when you are ready to sell. - Can send $$ via Pay Pal.

I got all of these and MANY MANY more from a local estate sale. The gentleman had been an avid RC enthusiast for over 40 years. I have in the neighborhood of 200 maybe even 250 Cox engines, mostly Sure Starts that are all new in package. But also baby bees, product engines etc etc. And I assure you all, the Cox engines are the least of it. This guy had everything and now my buddy and I have it. Muaha ha ha. Lol! Thank you so much for the help guys, I'll stay in touch.
Scotty68
ps. sorry, I forgot to answer the question. It however is hard to answer because I didn't just get Cox stuff but a whole estate. But as far as the whole estate goes.... yes! We got a very good deal on the lot of it and are quite pleased with ourselves I assure you. : )

The only model I have enough of to flood the market is the Sure Start. It doesn't really look like anyone wants those?

Just a thought, on those Sure Starts, if you want to make quick work of them and are willing to let them go at wholesale, you might be able to make a bulk deal with one of the current major sellers like Ex Model Engines or Cox International. May be with some of the others, too.
May be worth inquiring. This Site Rocks!  lol!  Huh...  Tired w/ Coffee Read  Smoking  Eyebrows  Popcorn  Thumbs Up  Beer Cheers

That is flipping brilliant! Why didn't I think of that? Do you have a specific contact in mind or just shoot from the hip?

Why yes there is. I have several Black Widows, 1 RR1 and a Space Bug. I don't know what a Venom or a Killer bee is? I am currently working with a guy on the RR1 as well as several others. And I plan on holding onto my Space bug and My QRC not to mention several of the lesser models.
This gentleman that I am working with on a group of these engines wants me to throw down a number. But I am unclear on that topic. Other than ebay, I have no idea what this stuff goes for. Is there anyone on here that I could PM, maybe share the list of engines I am offering and get a ball park number that I should be at? There wouldn't be any liability on their part what soever and no hard feeling if things didn't go down the way this person suggested. I would consider it a huge favor.
We are discussing a deal on 24 engines, obviously I want to get as much as possible for them but I don't want to gouge anyone either. I just need a starting point.

One thing you can do is a backwards search on eBay (if you haven't already).
To the right of eBays search bar is an"advanced" option, click it. Enter engine name and check "completed listings" then click search.
It will show dozens if not hundreds of past sales.
Price will follow condition and rarity, NIB, used, abused.

It was just a thought from the hip. Bernie at Cox International mentions occasionally buying engines from individuals, hence why I said. You can go to his website at https://coxengines.ca/ or Matt's at http://www.exmodelengines.com/, click on "Contact", tell them what you have and fill in your contact info. They might be interested in some of your other engines, too.

I don't like to give advice but, If I needed knowledge to make a deal that suited both parties, I would spend some time on Ebay under completed listings for each engine type.
After a couple of hours you will get the real flavor of the market and what each type has sold for recently...

Not everyone is financially astute, I know I'm not. I don't play the stock market, buy my cars already prenegotiated instead of dickering, etc. Some prefer to sell all their "good used items" on E-Bay, I prefer to give stuff away than attempt to make money. Everyone has their particular gifts and talents, and some like to go the extra mile, others not.

Okay guys, I thought I had mentioned it in a previous comment but apparently not. I am an avid ebayer of many many different genres of items. Ebay is the FIRST place I went for info on value but that only gets you in the ball park. I have already done considerable leg work on the matter with mixed results. I was just looking for something a bit more definitive. I have since gotten the info I needed. I, for a minute was kind of expecting the benefit of the doubt on the obvious routes of finding the value of things but when I thought about it I realized that giving the benefit of the doubt often lands you in the same situation as "assuming" does. : )
Thanks for all the help so far guys.

Scott, if you want to offer those engines to the community here, by all means do so. I don't think anyone here would short you on the value. You may not get top dollar, but then you wouldn't get bottom end either, and then both parties benefit.

I've seen things on E-Bay go both ways. I landed a Medallion .09 RC and a Medallion .049 for under $30 each. I got a Sterling 36" P-38 profile kit for $40 a few years ago. Why not many other bidders beats me as these popular kits and engines usually command more even with some mistakes in the description.

Besides, people feel more comfortable buying from someone in the community here than a total stranger elsewhere.
Anyway, just shooting from the hip. Popcorn drunken sunny Beer Cheers

Scotty: [to Keenser] Get off there! It's not a climbing frame!
Scotty: [back to Spock Prime] The notion of transwarp beaming is like trying to hit a bullet with a smaller bullet whilst wearing a blindfold, riding a horse.
[Spock writes on a paper]
Scotty: What's that?
Spock Prime: Your equation for achieving transwarp beaming.
Scotty: [to himself] He's out of it.
Scotty: [reads the equation] Imagine that! It never occurred to me to think of SPACE as the thing that was moving!
