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.

 

 

SOLD OUT

Please understand that, due to limited production quantities, it's not possible for every member to get every item we offer.

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. 

I agree with you

I am glad to hear some folks find it disappointing since that might mean I (and others) may have a chance of buying one. I admit the front and rear are less than perfect but I want one. It reminds me of the ones I had when I was a kid but WAY nicer. Overall I think it looks fantastic.

 

Good luck to all. If I don't get one, I will be happy for those that do. For those who find it disappointing, I hope you get something you want later this year. It's fun to see what they come up with each time even if I don't always get one.

Already set up my tent! 

I love it. It has the same casting "imperfections" as the original, as it should be. 

Will surely compensate for missing the Datsun.

This is an  awesome car I'm definitely going to be interested in this one now I know better from the last time that when I get let into the room I'm supposed to hit the details tab that's one of the main reasons why I didn't get the last Datsun.  I mean how stupid can a person be.  So I'm ready, come on RLC.. #redlinerichie  #mattelfreak  #rlccollector

The front of the car looks distorted I hope the one pictured is just a demo. I love the Mustang's and i'm glad its on a card.

The chrome trim around the grille is definitely upside down, and there’s no horizontal chrome strip through the middle meeting the logo at center.

Sadly have to agree. My excitement has dampened. Beautiful paint, great side profile. But I guess, to accommodate the opening hood feature, the front proportions really got out of whack.

I think the lighting is playing funny tricks with this pony.

Definitely needs a wheels swap.  The tires up front look silly - will look better with 10-spoke RRs on custom width axles.

People complain too much. I for one am so glad they are releasing this beautiful mustang. I would say this is one of the best Ford's they have ever come up with. The blue and white is perfect. The wheels. Engine. So so amazing. I'm buying for sure. This is so great. No empty complaints here
