You have two ways.
1, Buy the latest Matchbox Guide by Charlie Mack
2, Check each car in an Ebay search
There are books on the values. Or you could just look it up.

A Matchbox car can be identified by a label on the bottom of the car. Flip the car over and there will be the logo for Matchbox as well as the country of manufacture.
A matchbox is a box that is made to store matches. A Matchbox car is a car that, when invented, was so small it would fit into a matchbox. Matchbox 20 got their name from the fact that most matchboxes come with 20 matches.
You should probably either go to their website OR contact an experienced car collector.
The first Matchbox toy vehicle was manufactured in 1949.
it depends on the car
Often times it is difficult to determine the value of a used car on the spot. I would suggested using car facts in order to determine the cost with the acknowledgement of any past car damage and issues.
That depends on the kind of car it's a replica of. A Matchbox fire engine will weigh more than a Miata.
Car appraisals can determine the true value of your vehicle but it can also vary on the condition of the car as well. These are not always an accurate representation.
The best way to determine the value of a used car is to compare your car to the same make/model/year as another car on www.carmax.com. Simply look for your car on their website and determine if the price they set seems fair.
They use a market value guide.
Unfortunately, Matchbox cars are all different scales. The cars are all made to a particular size (no more than 3"). Therefore, a larger car or truck would have to be scaled down more in order to fit the 3" Matchbox size requirement.
Information about the current Matchbox car models that are available can be found at the Mattel website as well as Matchbox Collectibles, Collectors Weekly and Entertainment Earth. A Matchbox checklist is available at Toy Nutz.
Other then silver value there is no collectors value on Franklin Mint items.......
There are many things that determine the value of the car. The most important thing is the make and model of the car and what year it was released. Other factors include what add ons you have had installed on the car, such as rims and stereo equipment.
about 35 grams depending on the type of car that you are looking for

Yes, Hot Wheels and Matchbox cars will run on the same track. Remember that Matchbox are not designed to be Race Cars and will not perform like Hot Wheels.
