In 1981 Hot Wheels introduced a new line of cars that they described as the “fastest non-powered metal cars”. “The Hot Ones” featured a new 6-spoked gold wheel and a thinner axle and the popular series continued until 1986. Though The Hot Ones series was brought back in 2011 and 2012, these are two 1980s originals that I picked up on eBay from the same seller.
The Torino Stocker was first cast in 1975 wearing red paint and the number 23. There is also a version from 1979 that wears the same black paint and tampo as this one, but with blackwalls at the corners. This one is from 1982.
The ’57 Chevy was originally released in 1977 and has made dozens of reappearances over the years. This yellow version is from the 1984 The Hot Ones series.
