The rest of the Hot Wheels from the FBQT collection are in such rough shape, I decided rather than feature each one individually, I would just show them all on one long page.
This Jaguar XJS is the 1978 first release, but it’s missing most of its windshield, paint and tampo. Fortunately, I already have a much nicer example.
This ’57 T-Bird is another 1978 first-release that’s missing most of its paint and tampo, and again, I already have another much better example.
I believe this Hiway Hauler with the missing box would be the 1980 North American Van Lines first-release, because it’s the only white cab version that was made in Hong Kong. Click here to see the example I have with its box intact.
I also already have the 1981 Dixie Challenger, and I would say this one’s in better shape if it weren’t for the unsightly scrape across the top.
The Hot Wheels Corvette Stingray, first released in 1976, was a childhood favorite and I’ve been wanting this variation from 1982 for awhile now. But this one is pretty rough, so I’ll keep looking for a cleaner example.
This Hi-Rakers 3-Window ’34 is actually pretty nice, except for the missing driver’s side headlight. I already have one of these 1983 variations, as well as the 1980 first-release and a silver model from 1995.
The Hot Wheels Ferrari Testarossa was first released in 1987. This red version with Ultra Hots and black and red interior is from 1988. I also have a Color Racer version of the Testarossa that I have not yet photographed.
The Mercedes 540K was first released in 1982. I now have two different whitewall-wearing variations from 1988 that are missing the chrome grille and beige plastic top: One is this black model, and the other is the chrome version from the 20th Anniversary 3-pack.
I have quite a few variation of this next model – originally released as Highway Patrol in 1978. In 1978, it became Fire Chaser and Sheriff Patrol after that. This tan version from 1988 is a color changer from the Automagic series and is, rather strangely, both a police car and a taxi cab.
Next, we have a later variation of the ’57 T-Bird – after the porthole window was filled in on the sides – from the 1990 Park ‘n Plates series.
The Hot Wheels Hot Bird is a classic casting which first appeared in 1978. I don’t really understand the layers of color on this version, but it appears that at one time it was the 1990 All American Fire Bird, which had white paint with a red and blue stars and stripes tampo. I also have the 1982 Hot Ones version, the shiny model from the Golden Machines 6-Pack, and the 1979 variation released as Captain America.
The Camaro Z-28 was first cast in 1982. This McDonald’s promo from 1991 is the second of this casting I’ve added to my collection. The other is a color-changer from 1988.
The GT Racer made its first appearance in the 1989 Speed Fleet series. My black model is from 1993 and is in passable condition except for the missing chrome engine and wing.
Finally, another variation of the Corvette Stingray. This one with the caved-in top would have been found in the 1995 Chevrolet 5-Pack.
