I found two eBay sales of 1960s Flexible Flyers that sold on eBay.
These are the results:
On 12.5.13 $75
On 12.3.11 $51
Both were shown to be in very good condition.
The auction value of your sled would be $51-75 assuming very good condition.
The retail value of certain items is more than the auction value.
Your sled would have a retail value of $90-120.
A private seller to a dealer can expect 40-60% of retail value.
I hope I have helped you.
If I can help you with further questions about this answer, please let me know before you rate me.
All my answers are quoted in USA dollars.
I endeavor to give realistic, honest answers in a timely manner.
If you would like to work with me on future questions, I would be pleased to work with you.
All you have to do is put my name (Doris) at the beginning of your question.
Please take a little time to give me a POSITIVE RATING now so that I am compensated by JA for my time and effort. This is of no cost to you.
Please do not rate me down because of system difficulty, site charges or current appraisal values - all three are beyond my control.
Please let me know if you have difficulty with the site's rating system.
Kind regards.
