1970 Heavy Chevy

Of all the cars from my childhood, this was my favorite Hot Wheel, and the best car on the orange track. It was heavy enough to travel far, but could still make it through the loop. The chrome Heavy Chevy was only available through the club kit, but I was only 4 in 1970, so I imagine it was ordered through the mail by one of my older brothers and eventually handed down to me. As you can see from the photos, it was well played-with.
