The 1970’s Redlines

In 1970, enthusiasts eagerly anticipated Mattel's continued expansion of the Hot Wheels lineup. With already forty models available, the introduction of an astonishing 34 new Hot Wheels, including three new series—Heavyweights, Spoilers, and Mongoose & Snake—added to the excitement. Each series boasted its own uniquely designed packaging.

Two distinctive models, exclusively available with a track set, marked a departure from the traditional blister pack format, making them the only Hot Wheels cars without a collector button. Notably, 1970 witnessed a shift as Mattel introduced plastic collector buttons alongside the existing metal ones, a change seen in select models.

The year also featured a special chrome car, complete with a collector button, created exclusively for a major promotion enticing enthusiasts of all ages to join the Hot Wheels Club. For just one dollar, fans eagerly awaited the arrival of their Hot Wheels Club Kit, hoping the mailman carried their ticket to exclusive membership. 🏎️✨ #HotWheelsHistory #CollectorEditions
