I'm curious if my original 1973 Richard Petty Dodge Charger super 1/16 kit is of any more value than the new ones now that the new ones are out?

When did MPC re-release them?

I picked up an original, unopened kit about a year ago when I stopped by a mom and pop hobby store that was closing its doors and selling off their inventory at a big discount.

The body being molded in clear plastic should make it worth more....IF someone wants an original to collect.

Original issues of many kits have less flash than re-issues and sometimes even additional parts not in the re-issues. Also, some of us (me) like the older plastic better than the softer, newer stuff.

I've seen them on Ebay for around $200.00 and up.

The reissued kits (even the Baker kit issued in the mid '70s) have some tooling modifications. The original is by far the best to build.

Years ago, before the repop came out, sealed Petty kits
