Thought I had a Bargain, got a great suprise! (BTW what's a 911-1 worth?)
Normally bit of a lurker as I'm a new AFOL just coming out of my dark age (rediscovered enthusiasm whilst collecting Lego Friends sets for my daughters).
Posting this as I think there's some interesting sets I've picked up.
Saw a advert for some old classic lego sets for £60, few boxed sets that looked like good condition and couple of margarine tubs of loose lego:
911 Advanced basic set - boxed
948 Go Cart Good - boxed
918 One Man Space Ship - boxed
970 Lighting Bricks - Boxed
107 Universal Motor - Boxed but broken
305 Two Crater Plates - Boxed
Picked it up last night and was well pleased. Got home & opened the margarine tubs and got . . . Loose lego, minifigs, instructions & cut up boxes!!! all around the 1976-1981 era!
Spent the night putting them together & haven't finished yet but I reckon I've got instructions & bricks for:
1x 616 Cargo Ship
1x 644 Police Mobile Patrol with box
2x 886 Space Buggy with box's
2x 886 Space Buggy
1x 425 Fork Lift
1x 698 Boeing Aeroplane
1x 663 Hovercraft
1x 133 Locomotive
1x 891 Two Seater Space Scooter
1x 6822 Space Digger
1x 6821 Shovel Buggy
1x 885 Space Scooter
1x 6801 Moon Buggy
2x 894 Mobile Ground Tracking Station
2x 6842 Small Space Shuttle Craft
1x 6627 Convertible
1x 645 Police Helicopter
1x 670 Mobile Crane
1x 625 Tractor Digger
1x 6609 Race Car
1x Weetabix2 Windmill
1x Weetabix3 House
1x Weetabix4 House
I'll add the Weetabix set instructions/inventory to the rebrickable database if I can figure out how to do it.
The missus' hasn't been impressed with me recently with my Lego buying spree (42009, 42030,10236 in the last month) so after justifying this lot purchase I've promised to sell some of it off to offset my spending.
I've got a pretty good idea what most of the sets are worth but the boxed 911 set is tricky as there's not much historical data. Anyone hazard a guess?
Also I've got a bunch of cut up boxes for the smaller sets. Do they add value & are they worth taping back together or should they be offered as is?

Hi, Here's the instructions for the Weetabix sets, I'll get them scanned in properly send them to whoever maintains the brickset database.
They've been resized using html tags in this post but the full res can be downloaded by saving the picture.

Spent the last few evenings happily building away!
Got everything listed pretty much 99% complete. Additionally had the 435 Tipper Truck & 6841 Mineral detector
Had a few broken bricks here & there but nothing major. The condition of the instructions are generally very good with some of them never unfolded (especially the duplicate sets). Some of the Basic sets have sun damage. Looks like the previous owner cut up the boxes and kept the front and back pieces for build ideas.
The 918 Is pretty much pristine, The gold & createring detail is very obvious! instructions & box almost brand new.
Didn't know that the 894 Mobile ground tracking station was rare so pleased that all four clear shields are present & good condition.
948 set is complete but a few pieces missing from the 911.
Tested the lights & Motor & they both work!
Have to admit I'm intrigued by the roof construction & architecture in the Weetbix sets but have to admit I'm really enjoying the Lego space at the moment. Really taking me back to my childhood.
Think I need to look at cleaning the bricks now & finding somewhere to store/display them safely.
Thanks for the feedback. Looks like I should send the instuctions to rebrickable?
