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.

I plan to do just that. But first I have to complete a couple of deals I had in the works when I started this thread so I know what I have left. Don't worry, you guys will get a shot at some of it. BUT! I am keeping some of them as well. Like the QRC, the little Space Bug, at least a couple of the PeeWee's the .15 Medallion and maybe the Queen Bee. Awe screw it! I'm keeping all of them. Lol! I'm just kidding. I'll keep you posted. Oh, and top dollar isn't always the best outcome, I have no problem passing along some good fortune.

you said...."I have recently come into A BUNCH of Cox engines (somewhere in the neighborhood of 200)"

One would assume within that stash are many that are just not than needed or rare or spark much interest

BUT there is also the likely hood you have a fair collection of several of the harder for find parts for engines

Any RR-1
any .10s
Many .20s
Tee Dee .049, .051, .09s, and .15s command pretty good prices depending on condition

with that many you should consider RC Groups, Stunt Hanger, RC Universe sale ads...all free no fees

Hint if you have a boat load of old Bees with metal back plates...the back plates, if in good condition will get higher bids than the entire engine lol!

Now that is good info to have. And yes, I am fully aware of RCGroups and RCU. I have had some of these listed on there for a week already. The info I was not aware of was the back plates and I thank you for that.

De Nadda Brother....

Same idea for you TeeDee stash.... if ANY have Kirn Kraft Fine thread needle valve assys...128 TPI versus the coarser Cox 80 TPI NVA...those NVAs are worth more right now than the entire engine...some on E-bay going as high as $149.... Texas Timer still has a few, but no longer $15 now they are $35...so the bid up to $149 was insane BUT you know how E bay bidding wars can get very very interesting

BTW some engines are worth a lot more as parts than the whole assy..... some used RR-1s are going for $75~$150,,,BUT the single Rear Roter part can command nearly that much by itself

Same with True .051 pistons
Same with some .10 or .20 piston Cylinder sets  in  good condition

I do not envy you... I have been slowly selling off my and giving away my stash.... addressing, packaging, and shipping are a royal PITA
