Is it an indication that the car was bought on clearance or as a close out?
It's just what people like and or are willing to pay. Is a door number worth more? I think so, but how much is the question each person has to answer themselves.And to me, it's not worth much more than the retail anyway. A Jeff Gordon 00024 shouldn't be selling for $200.00 when a Jeff Gordon 00023 or 00025 is selling for $55.00.

and this is a pretty common understanding of the majority of collectors...I buy to COLLECT, recall cool races, pick up neat paint schemes, support my favorite drivers...I invest in corporations and stocks/bonds when I want to make real money...I couldn't care less about the numbers, door or otherwise. I've got a large collection & I've never even looked at any of the numbers. Like others have said "worth" is what folks are willing to pay. Using the Jeff Gordon example if a dealer is asking retail price for car 023, $200 for car 024, & retail for car 025 then car 024 is only "worth" $200 to the person willing to pay that much for it. To me, & I like Jeff Gordon having over 120 1/24 cars of his, I'm buying one @ retail price & not the worthlessly elevated, in my opinion, "door number" for 4x the retail cost. Not intending to resell anything the "worth" is not there to me. Just my 2 cents!
