Movies changed forever when the first Star Wars film premiered in 1977. If you were a kid back then, remember first scene where Lord Vadar’s ship, “the Devastator,” appeared on the screen above our heads, shooting at a small Jedi Resistance ship? For all movie-goers, the moment was transcendent. The scene made kids feel like they were “in” the movie with Darth Vadar looming over them.
After that, the craze was on, and kids couldn’t get enough! Merchandise changed too. Just about anything had Star Wars on it. If you slept under R2D2 sheets, or had a Han Solo lunch box, you get it. Action figures and Lego sets flew off the shelves. Today, many of those first-series items are considered valuable collectibles. And you were lucky enough to have a mom who kept your favorite toys, now might be the time to get them back!
George Lucas’ visionary approach to special effects changed the game in the film industry forever. Porsche was also breaking new ground with the 911 Turbo Carrera. It was the first turbo-charged sportscar made. The sleek and sporty coupe could accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 6.5 seconds. In 1977, only 2,800 were made, and 727 were shipped to American shores. Since then, car enthusiasts have continued to be amazed by the crowd-pleasing coupe.
Selling a Vintage 1977 Porsche
Feeling nostalgic for Star Wars toys from the 1977? Trade one “collectible” for another
Car collectors may be looking for a one-of-a-kind 1970s Porsche 911, but someone with one of these vintage sports cars may have another dream. Their thirst for nostalgia might be quenched with a room full of Star Wars memorabilia. If you own one of these incredible sportscars and are ready to trade it in for vintage Luke Skywalker gear, the next thing to do is find out how to get an appraisal on a classic 1977 Porche.
We are always happy to get a call to make an appraisal on a 1970s Porche. And we’ll look at any type of 1970s Porsche in any condition. Just like an original Star Wars action figure, even if it’s got a little wear and tear from being “played with” it could still be worth more than you think.
It seems that these vintage Porche 911’s never lose their allure and are always in demand. And the bonus is, collectors can find a classic Porche to fit any budget. For instance, on average a 1970’s Porche 911 can range from around $15,000 to $40,000 and over. That’s not bad for a classic car. Of course, this all depends on the current situation; is it considered in mint condition? Or do the seats need to be reupholstered? Maybe the paint job is dull and rusty in some spots? We can never be sure until we see the car for ourselves.
