Marketed as the “fastest metal cars in the world,” Hot Wheels*r revolutionized the die-cast toy car market. Collectors throughout the world recognize the Hot Wheels*r brand. The models produced between 1968 and 1972 represent the vintage years for this line of toy vehicles. The bright “Spectraflame*r” paint colors and “redline” tires, unique to Hot Wheels vehicles, identify these models. These original models still drive the collecting hobby today.
The 221 wonderful color photographs provide a complete visual guide for collectors. The 118 unique castings produced during this four-year period are explained in detail and a complete variation and price guide is provided to expand knowledge and interest in collecting Hot Wheels.
Also included is coverage of the Gran Toros*t cars, launched soon after Mattel bought the Italian company Mebetoys. Introduced in 1970, the line was continued until 1973, though the name continued to 1980/81.
This new book is a welcomed addition to Hot Wheels literature by one of the world’s foremost experts in the field.
