39. Toy Cars and Trucks
No matter how much technology changes, little boys will still love playing with toy trucks. These comes in all shapes and sizes, from as small as a Hot Wheel car to a large Barbie camper van. Popular Mechanics has an extensive list with some examples of rare toy cars that have sold for a pretty penny. One of their examples is the Hotwheels 1969 prototype VW “Beach Bomb”. This goes for $70,000 to avid collectors who want to get their hands on this rare toy.
Don’t forget about those vintage metal trucks. While searching on eBay, we found a 1923 Vintage Arcade International Harvester Dump Truck listed for $2,000. Even some of the vintage metal Tonka Trucks, which are more commonly found in people’s attics, will still sell between $50 to $100.
