Coleman Coolers Are Collectible And Awesome

Updated on November 26, 2012

Here's A Video I Made For You!

Vintage Coleman Coolers

I love these classic old Coleman coolers. The older the better, but as long as they are metal, they are worth quite a bit. They don't make them like this anymore, and the old metal ones are becoming very collectible now. Many are from the 70s and well before then, and range in colors from blue to red to green. I found some very nice ones and show them off in great detail in the video on my youtube channel.

Some of the vintage ones from the 80s that are plastic are worth at least $40 and upwards of $60 if they are in great shape. The older metal ones can be worth over $100 and even $150 if they are in excellent condition and include the inside trays and or accessories. These are very reliable, sturdy, and well insulated.

If you are out treasure hunting, you should always keep an eye out for these because they can usually be picked up very cheap. I often get them for less than $10 because people don't know or even care how much they are worth! I have one of the plastic ones for my personal use for the beach and camping, but I don't dare to use one of the metal ones because I would rather sell them for profit to a collector.

Coleman is a very popular collectible name when it comes to anything outdoors. If you are treasure hunting, you should always look for stuff made in USA from the 80s and before because it is generally very collectible and well built. Coleman make a wide variety of other coolers as well. The other cooler in the video is a much smaller, round shaped one used to hold smaller things like beer or soda cans. These coolers are very desirable and sell well all year round!

      The smaller plastic ones are great too. Particularly the orange ones!

      I never knew these were worth anything. I am sure I bought at least 10 of them for different people. Gosh that shows how old I really am.
