Vintage Hot Wheels and Boxed Sets

Super RARE and ‘netting the coin’ are Hot Wheels from late 1967 through the seventies and the boxed kits that used to adorn the shelves of toy and ‘department’ stores all across America. Some of these cars and kits are so rare that prices have risen to hundreds of dollars per car and per kit (depending on ‘condition’ and ‘edition’ of course)!

Even the multi-car vinyl collector cases are desirable again to those who want to revisit that childhood charm through one of the most popular and satisfying toys in American history.

There were sixteen castings released in 1968, eleven of them designed by Harry Bentley Bradley.

The popular train-producing TYCO got into the ‘collector toy car arena’ and bought-out ‘Matchbox’ in 1993, then Mattel, maker of Hot Wheels bought out TYCO’s ‘Matchbox’ toy car line in 1997. So yes, all those ‘Lesney Matchbox’ cars and vehicles that were sold with the beautifully produced ‘matchboxes’ are quite sought after as I type (especially if you are lucky enough to have the box)!
