    It is an Action Racing Collectible, Robert Presley #77 Jasper Engines 2000 Taurus, 1 of 5,004. It is in very good condition still in box. It says adult stock car, hand crafted in china. I would like to know how much its worth because i want to put it on ebay.

    The Action Performance cars (or Motorsports Authentics as I believe the company is called now) sell for about $65 new. Robert Pressley was never a particularly famous or popular driver, though, and he never really accomplished much, so a model of one of his cars isn't too exciting. A die-hard fan of his (I'm sure they exist somewhere) or someone trying to collect all the 2000 edition NASCAR models (probably more likely) might be interested, but I can't imagine it would be worth more than its original price...I'd guess probably less.

    Look it up on south philly diecast, they list all kinds of cars and their values.

    I just sold a Michael Waltrip diecast on ebay and started it at .99 and it sold for $16!

    Being a diecast collector my self, (i HAVE OVER 800 pcs)its just like mentioned above.
    The value is determind by the driver, sponsership, and the year he drove, and what division(Winston Cup[now Sprint] Busch[now Nationwide] or the trucks. Beer and tabacco cars also pay pretty good, because there were so few made and are considered "adult collectibles".

    Also remember, the value of your diecsat is also determind by scale, manufactuer of the diecast. Action Performance, Team Caliber, Revell, Brookfield(which AP actually made for them) are higher in detail and quality then say Racing Champions and Winners Circle, which you can pick up at your local Box-Mart for a couple of bucks.

    If you had the Robert Pressly #33 Skoal Bandit car(it must actually say Skoal), I'd say you were sitting on a gold mine. But you say you have the #77, its probably, worth maybe a couple bucks more than you paid for it.
