1969- Police Cruiser
Let's roll back to 1969 when Hot Wheels introduced the groundbreaking Police Cruiser, marking the debut of emergency vehicles in their lineup. This iconic model paved the way for other emergency cars and trucks in the years to come.
The Police Cruiser is not just any car; it's the first to sport a "(ampo," with "POLICE" elegantly displayed on the front doors and a central Police badge emblem on the rear doors.
Designed after a late '60s Plymouth Fury four-door hardtop, early production models stood out with black-painted hoods, trunks, front and rear fenders, and the rocker panel beneath the doors. These rare variants, believed to be from the initial, limited production run, are incredibly hard to find. They even bear the words "POLICE CRUISER" on the unpainted metal base, unlike later versions that simply say "CRUISER."
Don't miss the police light atop the roof and the sirens on each side. The red light came in either translucent or opaque variations. Both the hood and trunk are sealed, and the Police Cruiser rolls with medium wheels on both the front and rear axles. 🚔 #PoliceCruiser #HotWheels #ClassicCars #Collectibles
