1968 White Custom Camaro
Witness, the legendary 1968 White Enamel Custom Camaro!
This Camaro is more than just a car; it's a piece of Hot Wheels history. It's said to be the very first Hot Wheels car to go from concept to production, originally designed as a prototype to inspire the creative minds behind these iconic toys. Some of these prototypes found their way into stores by mistake, adding an unexpected twist to their story.
Now, let's talk rarity! Within the world of Hot Wheels, there's a variant known as the White Enamel Prototype of the USA Camaro. According to the esteemed Michael Zarnock's Hot Wheels Field Guide book, this casting ranks as the third rarest Hot Wheels car ever released for commercial purchase. These unique castings were born during the development phase, where test castings were painted in both white and black enamel to spot any body imperfections. A handful of the white-painted beauties ended up in packaged castings, but interestingly, no black enamel versions have been found.
It's estimated that around 200 of these were initially produced, but time has been selective, and only about 25 of them are known to exist today.
