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

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!

I have always had a special interest in Mustangs,  have always had one since 1987, and still do,but I cannot wait to add this Beauty to my stable. 

Sure hope this sale goes as smoothly as the last one did. Great job on the last sale hotwheels team!

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.

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.

 

Guys, this is a release of the original Sweet 16 '67 Mustang. It is meant to be and look exactly that; to feel like the original cars with the same grit, imperfections and not-so-exact look of the original.  The HW Team could have cast a "perfect" piece. Instead they stayed true to  the original design. I think it's perfect.

Also, comparing it to the 302 is not fair. These are two very different castings separated about 30 years (or so?) of casting quality development.

Car looks good. Wrong choice for wheels/tires. Bling bling rubberband tires have never looked good on classic muscle cars and they never will. 🤢🤮

Well I was very keen on possibly getting this one being a Mustang fan and all, BUT seeing that front end shot quite literally made my jaw drop and not in a good way! That front end looks like it's been hit by a big ugly stick. I am just going to have to try and keep reminding myself that that is a vastly magnified image and with my not so perfect vision, if lucky enough to get one, in hand it might not look so bad 😒

What justifies the price raise ? This is not a special nor is it an acrylic case model, I don't see why the price has gone up. I've noticed this with previous sales too ..

having a opening hood on a car is great for the openers. but for those who keep them on the card its just extra money for something that  will never get used. so does the car prices go back down if they don't open?  Other  wise this year's  a bust for me.

They had make offer, I made an offer of $24.99 

 That's a good one. We should all offer $24.99 to these bad apples.  Seems like they also violate copyright by using Mattel's photos.

Not crazy about the front & rear treatment also.  Maybe it's the pics.  I'm still going to try to get one.

Look like a drag funnycar with bike wheels on the front, too deep in the fender, too big in the rear. The stripe print on the hood is bad on the preview! So dont be surprise of what you will get!!!

Definitely light is playing tricks with the pics.

Hopefully they don't ship with chipped paint tail lights like in the rear picture.

That is NOT true to the original design anyone that says it is doesn't  actually own one. The original had blacked out GT lights in the grill and was proportioned correctly to the real 68 Mustang. This looks like a cheap copy. Somebody's drunken stupor rendition. The profile looks good. Look up online original 16 Redline 68 Mustang. The front end is a Sad attempt to recreate it.

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.

Original did not have the same size wheels. Fronts were the small skinnies, rears were mediums.

I swear some complaints don't understand what this casting is, a direct retool of the original casting from 1968
