Didn't realise there is a valuations area!

Looking for a bit of guidance and advice on pricing really.

I have these two items that I no longer want to fit to any of my classics, I'm not interested in being fleeced by eBay any more so was going to jam them on the classifieds.

I bought them a long while ago now and have had them on display, I don't want to give them away but at the same time I don't want to hold them forever asking too much?

The Lubrocharger (3" Diameter) is a lovely dash mounted device to meter RedeX fuel additive as you drive (designed to use the suction of the inlet to draw RedeX through). The little twiddly knobs adjust the speed and flow of RedeX.

The RedeX Car Care Robot is a vacuum gauge to indicate the efficiency of your throttle input, engine speed and load. The unit body is 2" in diameter with a 2 and 3/8" rounded bezel.

Both have a lovely patina and will not only look great in a classic retro dash but should do a great job too!

not sure about the lubrocharger but a vacuum gauge will usually fetch between 15 and 25 pounds, but if someone desperately wanted that particular one, you might get a bit more.

I bought a redex vacuum gauge at Bingly show for £15 the one you have is the very early one (1950s) and so I would say it would be a bit more. the Lubrocharger, If it has all the fittings and instructions etc, I would say coupled with the gauge could be around £50 all together.

Didnt they come with an oil pressure gauge too in the original kit?

Ah ok that's good info although don't know about the oil pressure gauge? I bought these separately I think? At the time I was also kind of collecting automobilia - I have a nice Dunlop ash tray with a real rubber tyre surround too! :)
