Original 16 Upgrade: RLC Exclusive Custom Mustang!

By Gary Barnum

 

When the Original 16 Hot Wheels cars were released, they sported plastic wheels which made them fast. Years later, Hot Wheels introduced Real Riders wheels which made our die-cast “look and feel like the real thing.” Collectors have loved that upgraded look since 1983. Our Custom Mustang has worn them before, but rarely. This RLC Exclusive edition with Real Riders will be offered at HWC on 6/30/20.

Featuring an opening hood, this release is coated in Spectraflame Otto blue (named for artist Otto Kuhni, responsible for the art on so much of the early Hot Wheels packaging). And, of course, it rides on Real Riders 5-spoke wheels for that authentic appearance. Add this sweet pony car to your stable!

To be honest when I first saw it I said.. WOW! but then saw the front and rear shot and thought ...the front is almost unrecognizable and the rear could have used a little more detail. Maybe it's just this one?  Not great!  and for 24.99?   Maybe a pass  I'll have to see some other shots of this somewhere.

Same here, as much as I like that they want to pay homage to one of the original 16, it's lacking better defined detail, bummer since I like the blue/white combo, and cut-out hood. It looks ok from the side view, and those wheels would looks better on a dragster/gasser, this is a custom mustang I think they should've gone with same size tires front& back, instead skinny and fat tires on back don't quite have the same staggered effect as they do like in other castings.

Front kinda looks like Howard the Duck is starring at me, rear looks like maybe it's a full blown dragster, but that's not the case when you see the rest of it, the original custom stang had same size wheels, I think they should have stuck with that. The Mach 1 however, that casting looks better with these wheels.

LOVE the color and the wheels.  All angles look good, except the front end. 

Regardless, my wife & I are in.
