NCHWA Bus Mania: The Definitive Guide to VW Drag Buses (Liberty Promotions Issues)


NOTICE: Due to rising hosting fees, and the sales of the "Hot Wheels VW Bus Guide" that I've recently published, this section will no longer contain values for the Buses. While this was a tough decision on my part, please understand that I have to respect those who have purchased and supported the guides. It didn't make sense to offer a publication for sale AND carry the same values on the website at the same time. Royalties from the books are helping offset hosting fees as well. REST ASSURED that all other Hot Wheels values on NCHWA.com (with the exception of the Treasure Hunts), will continue to be listed as a free service. This section will still be maintained to show all of the VW Bus releases to at least provide a pictorial record and reference.

The "Hot Wheels VW Bus Price Guide" is updated and issued annually, and can be purchased in a full-color version for $21.03, OR you can get the economy "Blackout Edition" for $11.99, which contains the exact same information, but is printed in all black and white for a substantially reduced cost. These can be purchased by going to my Amazon Author Page. The book is 108 pages, and contains values for Mattel and Liberty Promotions buses. Each bus is pictured, along with information and values. I've also included an interview with Liberty Promotions Creative Director Lee Pearlman, and a bonus section/interview with Bryan Pope of Pope Designs. You'll also get a Wheel Chart, Top 25 List of most valuable models for both Mattel and Liberty, Production Charts and more. As an added bonus, you'll get to see EVERY Bus from Liberty, to include pics of the Rebel Runs, Charity and Convention issues that you don't see listed here!

Liberty Promotions is a diecast company that produces what is referred to as "Code 3" buses. Simply put, Code 3 is a product that is NOT produced in any way by Mattel. Liberty has been very, VERY prolific in issuing the VW Bus, and it doesn't appear they'll stop anytime soon. They've definitely issued some nice ones over the years. All gallery pics are credited to Liberty Promotions, and used with permission.
