The COMPLETE Guide to Redline Hot Wheels

The goal of these pages is to deconstruct the pivotal and ground-breaking first 5 years of Mattel Hot Wheels, the spectraflame years, for collectors. We do that by breaking down the cars themselves to make it easier to compare the various pieces they were comprised of, and with other castings manufactured at the time. You'll find exterior colors, interior colors, buttons, stickers and decals listed in a 'show me' minimalist text format.

The second pass over the castings has begun, check out the new information on the 1968 castings page!






























We've improved our mobile and small screen support.  Photos and the Spectraflame color tables will now provide scroll bars when they don't fit in your browser window.
