Redline Hot Wheels

A "Redline" Hot Wheels is a model that was made within the first ten years of production: 1968 to 1977. The term "redline" is a term of affection that collectors have given to early Hot Wheels and the fact that the cars were produced with a red stripe on the tire during that period.

Sweet sixteen

The first sixteen Hot Wheels models were: Beatnik Bandit, Deora, Ford J-car, Hot Heap, Python, Silhouette and the Custom line: Barracuda, Camaro, Corvette, Cougar, Eldorado, Firebird, Fleetside, Mustang, T-Bird, Volkswagen.

In 1977, the 'Redline Wheel' was phased out, with the red lines no longer being printed on the wheels.

I’ve been looking for a very rare snake hot wheel. It’s the Pink Snake made in the early 70’s. Have you seen any around and what are they worth? Mine was stolen with all my Red Lines. Would love to find one again!
