Anyone know what something like this is worth?

 

It's basically a NOS deck that wasn't stored well (by me). Who knew? I got it from a friend way after its' time.

Send it to me. I can determine its value and store it properly. I even have some nice NOS blue Tunnel Rock wheels and some ACS 580s that would be perfect for it.

it depends, the water damage and the split in nose devalues it a bit imo, i'd say closer to $150 because of that but again this is just my opinion, the routing and being undrilled definitely gives it more value...

I agree.  In its current condition, $150 feels right.  If it was NOS, then it would be more like $250.

Thanks for the input everyone. I just called it nos cause it was never drilled/ridden. I know it's a bad example of nos. Just curious on the value because it's 1 of 2 decks I have from the 70's and the recent re-release of Tunnel stuff.

You know what I would like to do???  I'd like to barrow it so I can get Danny @ Factory 13 to make a run of decks just like it as a little tribute to Tunnel.  Why don't you contact me via email if you're really interested in selling it?  I'll either give you an above fair offer on it or (VERY SERIOUSLY), barrow it to clone it (and improve on it a bit so it's functional).  If you allow me to barrow it, I would be more than happy to slide you a free Factory 13 deck that comes from the batch.

I've done offers like this before for other members that designed decks, anyone here will tell you just how serious and trustworthy I am.

 

Let's do something cool with this, I love these old decks...

 

later,

You can take Merlin (Frank) at his word.  Seriously, he is The Man!  Would be cool to have the original & a Factory 13 remake of that deck.

merlin, I just saw your post.

I never skated any Tunnel products, but for some reason liked this unused deck and held on to it. I'll probably keep it, but what your saying sounds like a really cool thing to be involved with. I'm surprised no other ones have turned up?

Anyone know of any? Or is this TOO RARE??

Does Factory 13 do the current Tunnel stuff? I don't keep up an everything.

Also, is there someone you know there who can check these photos out?

I'll send an email in case you don't see this post.

Tunnel is again making decks and wheels.

Mitch Haake is involved, but the main guy now is Mike Horelick, email - info@tunnelskateboards.com

I recently purchased their new 10x33 Tunnel Pool Deck (measures more like a 9.5x33). Pretty nice, it's a good compliment to my BDS decks; sort of like a mini Quad 10. Has the old school Tunnel logo on the bottom and that's it - looks really sharp. As far as ride, the factory drilling felt awkward. I moved the rear truck 1" forward to give the deck a 6.75" tail and a 17.75" wheelbase and it feels much better. It's great for tight bowls, but for me it's not as stable as a Q10 with the same wheel and truck set up.

Tunnel Waldo Autry NOS undrilled

I've got a used OG Tunnel Waldo Autry Cloud deck (like the previous pic, with the blue fiberglass layers top & bottom) set up with Lazers & translucent red Tunnel V wheels.  One of my favorite setups.
