The 2016 HW Stangs Club Mustangs
 
 
 
 

HW Stangs 2016, This site is not associated with Mattel Inc., it's a dedicated hobby site.
Hot Wheels redlines came out in 1968 when Hot Wheels first appeared. They included 16 original models and one of those models was the custom Mustang. Redlines appeared all the way til 1977, that's when black walls took over.

1968 Custom Mustang - white interiors, and louvred windows were the fairly hard to find! The hardest to find was the open hood scoop variation, found only on the HK gold and red custom Mustangs! The very first blisterpacks for the 1968 Hot Wheels, today are hard to find, as the first cards are now called "Cheetah Cards" today. The Python casting was first listed as the Cheetah casting on the very first blisterpacks from 1968. This was quickly changed after they started making the blisterpacks for the 1968 Hot Wheels. Below is an example, and notice the word "Cheetah" in the third column on the very top. Finding a redline Mustang on a cheetah card today, is very rare! (Pictured Below)




Below is a couple photos of an 1968 release. It's an HK gold custom Mustang with the painted fascia, which you cannot see in the photo.




This Mustang could have also been found with open hood scoops, as shown with the photo below!


Below is a photo of a US red custom Mustang, with grey interior, from 1968! The red HK custom Mustang also could have been found with open hood scoops!


The next two photo's below, show the difference in the HK, and US bases.

1970 Hot Wheels Club - Boss Hoss


In 1970, Hot Wheels came out with the Hot Wheels Club. You could join the club, and get this Boss Hoss. It was one of three different castings that were offered only thru the club. All three had chrome paint, and had redlines. Pictured below is the club Boss Hoss.



1971 Mustang Redlines (Boss Hoss) - 1971 Spoilers


These could have been found with a very unique variation. The left over club Boss Hoss' got used in the 1971 production of the Boss Hoss. This created the "over chrome" variation. The over chrome Boss Hoss' today are very tough to find, and go for a hefty price. Photo's of the 1971 release of the Boss Hoss will be pictured soon!
