Larger-scale production models are highly collectible, and no longer made:

Regardless of the reasons for collecting, there are a few key considerations that are important to value: rarity, originality, and condition. These criteria overlap. The number of existing Hot Wheels of a given type has a dominant effect on value. Very limited prototypes, such as the Beach Bomb van, can fetch up to six figures. To acquire excellent examples of the original Sweet Sixteen and other desirable cars from the redline era can cost hundreds or thousands per vehicle. Simply put, the fewer collectors who can acquire a particular car, the more they are willing to pay.

Originality is important too. Hot Wheels were created as toys. As such, they met with all manner of chaos and collisions and handling and transport. Many were passed along to siblings or neighbors for more of the same. Cars lost wheels, hoods, engines, and spoilers. A quick internet search on ‘Hot Wheels parts’ will take you to online auctions and websites selling individual components, used and new. Those items can make an incomplete car whole again, but it won’t be completely original.

Larry Wood’s Bye-Focal (1971) was a Dodge Challenger–based vision with a stretched transparent hood

The car with a replacement hood or wheels is not as valuable to a collector as one in otherwise equal condition bearing all of the parts and the paint with which it left the factory. Subtle differences to the color or amount of wear or style may indicate a swap-out. In other cases, an unexpected color or wheel could indicate a variation that actually increases value. Research and logic are important tools when something looks different.

This Camaro has the open engine bay and exposed, blown V-8 of the Heavy Chevy (1970) but without the black grille. Door number and roof stripes look ill-fitting, while front wheels look barely worn. The windshield is clear, rather than tinted blue. This one deserves a closer look as a low-production/early oddity. A Mattel employee kept this model, never released in gold.
