Rarest Evel Knievel Toys

 

 

1.Evel Knievel Silver High Jumper Cycle

In 1977 the Ideal toy company released the Silver High Jumper Cycle. A production run of only 1700 were shipped initially in the United States and then worldwide. The main features of the Super Cycle was the amount of chrome that covered the bike, including the seat. This rare Knievel toy was not as well accepted by kids at the time, partially due to the drop off of popularity in the late seventies. Although it was not the biggest selling toy in the catalog it has made the Silver High Jumper Cycle quite the collectable item amongst toy collectors.

The only standout feature of this stunt set was a red high jump ramp. A complete boxed sets have been sold between $1000 and $3400.

 

 Evel Knievel Trail Bike (Large Box Variation)

The Trail Bike was issued in 1975 (box copyright 1976).

 

The large box version is one of the rarest EK toys to find. It contained the Trail Bike, Figure, Energizer, Instructions, decals and yellow cones.These first issue sets are extremely rare because very few were produced. Sealed Trail Bike sets (large box) are almost never seen and have been sold for as much as $2000.

 

 

 Evel Knievel Sidewinder Supercycle

evel-knievel-sidewinder-toy

 

The Evel Knievel Sidewinder was originally released in 1977 for distribution in Germany and the UK only. This was once considered the rarest of Evel toys however some have surfaced on Ebay in the past year so we bumped it down a notch.

 

The limited model featured a motorcycle sidecar which was detachable from Super Cycle just a like it's real life clone. Only one thousand Sidewinder sets were ever and this makes it extremely rare and nearly impossible to find a set in mint/boxed condition, prices have been seen to range from $1500-$5000 US.

 

 

Evel Knievel Fast Tracker Wheelie Car

Evel Knievel Fast tracker

 

Another toy the was introduced in 1975 was the  Fast Tracker. It was made in limited numbers and too never achieved the sucess of the EK Stunt cycles as it featured a car and not a motorcyle. None the less, the wheelie car found a home on top of collectors shelves and continues to be a rare gem in the Evel Knievel collection. The Fast Tracker is not the most expensive collectable but it is very rare. More Fast Tracker

Road andTrail Adventure Set

road and trail set
 
The road and trail adventure set was shipped in 1975 an initially issued as an exclusive for the Child World chain. The set was to compete with the growing popularity of the Adventure People figures that were produced by Fisher Price. The Adventure People also had a series of toys with names like the Daredevil Sports Van, Dare-Devil Sport Plane and Motorcycle Race team. The competing set ideas were arguably inspired  from  ideal's EK sets. The Knievel Road and Trail Adventure Set contained a very rare Trail-bike and a one of a kind figure that was never replicated in the line. It also contained a vintage style pick up truck. Prices range between $1000 mint/complete and $200 without the box. Very Rare!
 

 

5. Evel Knievel Stratocycle

 In 1977 Warner Brothers release the action film, "Viva Knievel" starring Evel Knievel (as himself), Gene Kelly, and Lauren Hutton. The original film footage used was from Knievel's legendery crash at Wembley Stadium in May of 1975. Naturally Ideal produced a toy to commemorate the film. The action set was release with a Strator Cycle just like the one he rode in the movie. Both the toy and the movie were a flop at the time but are now cult classics. Good condition boxed sets complete range from $400-$800.
