It’s the stuff Hot Wheels collectors’ dreams are made of… For the first time in over 40 years, we released a brand-new Ford J-Car—as part of the HWC Series Nine Neo-Classics.
Based on the 1967 Ford GT40 Mark IV, the original Ford J-Car was a Hot Wheels casting designed by Harry Bradley. It debuted in the 1968 as part of the original 16 line of castings and every version of the car had a die-cast body, die-cast chassis, Redline-era wheels and bent-axle suspension. The car hasn’t been released since 1968 and this is the very first appearance of the retool! Take a look and you’ll see that while we’ve honored the original design.
