Old whelen strobe lights-is there a market for them?

I have been doing a little cleaning out in the shop and as I was filling up a large rolling trash can I ran across several items. I almost threw them away but I wanted to ask your opinions if they are worth listing on eBay or just a waste of time?
In the pics there is a red and a blue whelen mini max beam linear strobe set. They have a metal housin. Also pictured is a chrome red red micro grille master. Shortly after I took these pics I found it’s blue mate. I remember that I got these in a lot with several other lights that I had purchased for a friend who was restoring a late 80s or early 90s Texas DPS mustang, just like the one that he drove years ago. He wanted the original lights and the only ones I could find came in a lot with these items.
I also ran across a few older whelen corner J style edge 9000 tubes with pretty decent reflectors and some haligen flashers from the same era.
Is there a market for any of it? And if so what would a fair price for a seller and a buyer be?

I would certainly not dispose of them.
Why not put an ad up the forums and take best offer? To someone in need of these for a restoration, you would be a hero/angel!

Good point, I only suggested eBay because for 1 I didn’t Know if it would be desirable to people here and 2 I like the idea of the highest bidder when I don’t know the value of a item, the funds aide projects that are usually donated or sold at cost depending on the department. I do make a little extra change off the amber stuff and parts I sell but usually put it right back into a project. I often find my self doing builds just to see how the idea turns out, then letting it go to do another.

I totally understand where you are coming from, you may do very well on the bay with these. I know I commonly saw both of these types of heads side mounted on motors back in the day up here in the Northeast, but like all things, they are only valuable if someone wants them. I’d just hate to see them end up in the trash as they appear in very decent condition for vintage strobe heads.
Good luck sir

Instead of throwing things away, even if you think they have no value at all, first please consider offering them here for "free plus shipping." Because of this fantastic community, I have found homes for so many things that others were throwing out.

There are times I’ll be able to do that but rite now Time is something I don’t have to pack extra items up, I’m just selling what I can to fund projects because the new shop being built is a little over budget.
