In 1980, Hot Wheels introduced the Hi-Rakers, a series of models in which the back end could be raised or lowered to adjust the rake of the car. This ‘Vette Van from 1980 is an example.

In 1981, the casting was painted white, given new graphics and released as Iron Man in the Heroes series, though with the same Hi-Raker action.

Other Hot Wheels Hi-Rakers are the 3-Window ’34, ’40s Woodie, Dodge D-50, Split Window ’63 and Turbo Wedge.
