Back in 1968, the toy world was rocked forever with the release of the Hot Wheels Original 16 models. Now you can own a little piece of history with the latest version of one of the 16 vehicles, the Hot Wheels Original 16 Custom Volkswagen!
Based on a 1967 Volkswagen Beetle, Ira Gilford is credited as the designer for this super-popular casting. It scurried away after 1971 and wasn’t seen again until our retooled version arrived in 2005 for the 19th Annual Collectors Convention. This fan-favorite returns once again, now featuring a sunroof that actually opens, a gorgeous aqua Spectraflame finish, and Neo-Classics Redline wheels. Whether you’re a hardcore completist or simply love the Bug, this is a must-have for every collector!
With a production quantity of no more than 5,000 pieces, the HWC Original 16 Custom Volkswagen is packaged on a vintage Redline-era style blister card and parked in a black box.
