Those models were probably held in place to the inner box floor by elastics.

I think that these are made in England by Charbens, this range was started in 1955 up to the late 60's, they made a  Darracg & Spyker car from the film Genivieve. This set you have is from their Old Crocks range.

Andy is correct, the models are from the 'CHARBENS' Old Crocks series, Two examples, a Vauxhall and a Rolls-Royce on boxes shown below.

I would do a search on eBay or Vectis to see if there is interest and if any are at auction and the prices.

Although they have a certain charm, they are not widely collected in Britain, and prices are generally in the "pocket money" range, although a complete boxed set like this may attract a decent price at auction, but commission fees would obviously reduce the final amount realised.

There is a couple on eBay in average condition while their price is reasonable if anyone was really interested in collecting these types of small toy old time vehicles.

Just as long as those three bidders are going after the same item and they become very keen to win, then we shall see the price go up due to competition to be winner. It happens sometimes.
