How much is Barbie’s car collection worth? World

Though the Corvette is by far the most consistent model in Barbie’s six-decade-plus collection, the mainstay American doll has claimed a number of other cars. Curious to know what some selections from her complete collection might be worth today? Assuming she keeps her cars in Excellent (#2) condition, let’s stack them up.

Blue Barbie Bel Air World

She’s owned a 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air, the big-finned American classic, which could be had as a blue on two-tone pink and white or pink on two-tone pink. According to the Hagerty Price Guide, it’s worth $84,600 in Excellent shape on average. Her first car was a 1962 Austin Healey 3000 MkII ($74,600), which could be had in myriad colors. Her 1962 Mercedes Benz 190SL would snag $139,000 on average.

By 1981, acid-washed Barbie got a Radwood dream car in the VW “Jazzie” Rabbit Cabriolet (about $8000), a decidedly more practical car with fun bumper stickers that read, “High School is cool” and “I Heart Cool Dudes.”

Not to be outdone by Magnum P.I., Barbie went Italian in 1986 with a Ferrari 328 GTB ($191,000) that got iconic five-spoke wheels and red over tan or white over tan interior—both classic specs for this classic girl. She’s not stymied one bit by that gated shifter!

For the off-road adventurer in Barbie, nothing would do but a ’90s-era Jeep. Thankfully, it was after the era of rectangular YJ headlamps that Barbie rocked her pink Wrangler TJ ($23,200). It was an RC car sporting off-road tires and an “Oh, Sh*t” handle for Ken, who tried to conceal his fear while Barbie bombed through Baja.


Her 1994 Jaguar XJS convertible ($31,900) got burl-wood interior trim stickers, white leather, an automatic transmission, and a radio. Porsche jumped into the Barbie business with both a 964-generation 911 cabriolet ($64,000) that had working headlights and, later, a red-on-tan Boxster ($21,000) with a motorized, retractable roof.

Even Ford got a slice of the pie when it sold Barbie a 2003 Mustang GT convertible ($25,000 for a 2005 model)—merely a prototype for the fifth-generation pony car when Barbie curled her perfectly plastic fingers around its steering wheel. Eat your heart out, Vanilla Ice!


Just the cars mentioned here (not even including her Corvettes) would be valued well over $500,000 in total. And we didn’t even get into the camper van, the BMW Z8, her Rolls Royce Spirit of Ecstasy, or other cars like her Volkswagen Beetle, Volvo V70 wagon, or pink Fiat 500. Barbie has been a journalist, but on that salary alone she could never afford all these cool cars. Good thing she can pay the bills as a surgeon, pilot, firefighter, Olympic athlete, flight attendant, computer engineer, video game developer, Mars explorer, and CEO.
