This fun collection came from Steve in Oklahoma! Thank you Steve! Featuring THE SHELBY TURBINE (first row, green car on the right) is one of the most common redlines. The Shelby Turbine was one of four open-wheel Indy cars released in 1969 as part of the new Grand Prix Series.
Also referred to by some as the "pregnant guppy. This Redline came in a wide range of spectraflame colors and with three different colored interiors: Black, Champagne and White. All production pieces have blue tinted windshields. They can be found with both bearing and capped wheels, and even sometimes even with a mixture of both. The designer of the original STP turbine car, Ken Wallis, approached Carroll Shelby and convinced him to build a turbine car for the 1968 Indianapolis 500.
If you or someone you know have any REDLINES Hot Wheels from the 1960’s-1970’s, please shoot me a message!
Have a great day!
