Eco Tireflator Model 94 - Thu Aug 10 2017 09:31 PM

Just wanted to get some opinions on what this particular model is worth. Despite my poor attempt to get some quality photos please note that the glass is not cracked or broken. Also worth mentioning is that the dial spins freely with a turn of the crank. It does appear after looking over the back of it that the top right screw is missing the nylon washer which the other three screws have. This has only been in my family for the last 15 years during which the case has never been opened so I don't know what going on inside the unit. Just curious what you guys would value this at. Thanks in advance for any input and have a great evening.

Check ebay sold auctions. plenty of them there. Remember that those folks have to pay the fees to ebay. (like 10% or whatever it is) This model doesnt appear to have the hose hook-its kind of a islander head on a wallbracket like for a remote reel. in a way that hurts it a little for most people that just want to display one. Not a big deal , my opinion You could sell 7-750.00-give or take. For quick sale- 650. Restored 1000.1250-00. (needs glass, chrome parts, paint-interior gone through)

Don't restore it.
I think it's more desireable as is and shows good character.
Everyone is rattle canning these and de-valueing them I feel.
Too many with replaced glass,vinyl graphics and shiney over restored paint & chrome.Only to sit somewhere as a paperweight.
I'll pass up 10 restored ones to find one that isn't,and pay more for it.
They're only original once..
