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!

  • Spectraflame aqua finish
  • Opening sun roof
  • Neo-Classics Redline wheels with bent-axle suspension
  • Polished chrome-plated chassis and engine
  • Tan interior
  • Light smoke-tinted windshield

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.

Production car may vary from the photo shown. Mattel reserves the right to modify the color, decorations and wheel type.
