Hi,
recently I happened to buy a williams/bmw f1 ready set from someone
who said that this was not produced anymore and would be a
collectors item. I thought of running this but if this is really a rare
body or something I don't want to trash it. So my question is
- is this a rare and collectible set worth it's weight in gold? and put it
in my safety deposit locker?
- should I just sell it to someone who wants this in a pristine condition
and I buy the ferrari f2005 and run it?
- or should I just run this?

thanks
-Francis

It's definitely a collector's item but I don't see it going past $200. But you never know.

I would try my chances at ebay for it, and then use the cash to buy a new Ferrari F2005 or new McLaren MP4-20. Then keep the rest for profit.

greetings francis....

- is this a rare and collectible set worth it's weight in gold? and put it
in my safety deposit locker? rare... hmmm... well i haven't seen that body in a long time... so i would say it would be rare... but to say is it worth it's weight in gold?... in my opinion... not really...


- should I just sell it to someone who wants this in a pristine condition
and I buy the ferrari f2005 and run it? depends on the condition... and if you are willing to part with it... on a positive note, i've read that the newer f-1's have better fets (changed from 3004 to 3010 fets) in their esc's (basically they're supposed to be faster)


- or should I just run this? well it all depends on what you want to do... you could just save the body and purchase a new body to put on the chassis...


hope this helps... :D

Thanks grymg and Herman.
I think I'll go with Herman's idea of getting another body
and running it on this chassis, since my favourite is the
mclaren/mercedes silver/black body.
thanks,

What year is the Williams? does it have the HP sponsor? those are even harder to come by then the older Williams with Compaq.

I've been looking for the HP Williams body for a couple of years now.

I think it's the Compaq one. I don't have it here right now, I'll confirm.
thanks

Just for reference, I picked up a Williams body (just the body) a few months back for $45 new in the box.
