My favorite line up of Hot Wheels cars have to be the original Sweet Sixteen released on 8 to 10 year old kids (of which I was one) back in 1968! Most of these have had corresponding kits released over time and some of them are on many of our shelves right now! All one needs is the desire and a set of Chevelle wheels (and redline tires) to build!
1. Beatnick Bandit - Revell kit recently reissued couple years ago. Dang thing is small!
2. Custom Firebird - Use the Revell '68 Firebird kit as a basis. Reissued at least twice in the last 10 years!
3. Ford J Car - Old IMC kit will cost you a cool $150+, if you can find one.
4. Custom Corvette - The 1969 showcar released in 68 before the real 1/1 car. A Scoop if there ever was one.
5. Custom T-Bird - The AMT '69 T-Bird kit has not been reissued in a long time leaving vintage kits way out in the stratosphere.
6. Silhouette - AMT reissued this kit a short time back as a Prestige kit and then later with the trailer. Should be easy to find.
7. Custom Barracuda - MPC kit reissued by the old AMT some 8 - 10 years ago. Still easy to find.
8. Custom Cougar - '67 Cougar kit by AMT, not easy to find but out there. (NO the '69 is not "close enough")
9. Custom Fleetside - '72 Chevrolet fleeside by AMT is still around. Pop on a 1968 ElCamino roof and some body work... Done.
10. Custom VW - Tough one, Revell's old VW kit is junk and the Hasegawa kit is too expensive. Opening sunroof, neat car, I had one!
11. Hot Heap - Typical Model T hot rod based on the 1925 bucket and fenders. Not hard to find.
12. Custom Camaro - AMT '67, most of us have one of these on our shelves, even me a Ford guy!
13. Custom Eldorado - No current kits that I know of, but AMT had a kit back in '69.
14. Custom Mustang - 1968 Snakebite Mustang by AMT. Incorrect inner fenders and chassis so... perfect for this slammer project! Ha.
15. Deora - MPC kit last released 1987, lots on eBay for about $20.00
16. Python - No current kits available, very old styrene if you can find one. Not sure who molded it but my friend Bob Jungblut has one.
