Road Champs diecast cars

The history of Road Champs can be followed on the bases of their models: The earliest models date to 1982 and like most Road Champs, carry the city, state & zip code of their manufacturer. This odd practice may have been to allow prospective wholesale or retail firms to find the firm. In 1982, JRI, Inc. of Harrison, NJ 07029 produced these toy cars. By 1990, Road Champs Inc. of Caldwell, NJ 07006 is listed. Models dated 1992 identify West Caldwell, NJ. The latest models from 2000 list Malibu, CA, 90265 as the address and Road Champs Inc. is now a subsidiary of JAKKS Pacific Inc., a public company trading as JAKKS.

Scale 1:64

The earliest 1:64 scale Road Champs models are also some of the best. They included opening doors and even full engine detail in some cases as seen on the Ferrari Testarossa. These early models are quite accurate and include metal bodies and bases. the wheels are much like those of Hot Wheels from the same period. Matchbox and Majorette may have been the target competition for these models. Most of these early models were of American cars but the five models below provided Road Champs with an international flavor.

Packaging for these first models was both boxes and blisters. Boxes carried numbers although different numbers were used for different colors of the same car and therefore have little use. Blister packs show that Road Champs models were identified in categories such as 'Euro Sports'.

I have a Hank Williams, Jr. Eagle Coach from the 1993 tour. All the ones on ebay for sale are silver and have his signature included. Mine is gold and has no signature and the lettering is red. Other than that, it is identical. Is mine more valuable than the $6 to $15 dollars offered on ebay?
