Bugeye

The Hot Wheels Bugeye was a 1973 release that was produced in Hong Kong. It is an original design by Larry Wood that features a cockpit with a split canopy.

It can be found in quite a few enamel colors, has blue tinted windows, and a black interior. A rear hatch opens to reveal the detailed engine. The redline wheels are through-hole in the front and capped in the back.

The die-cast car was a promotional item available at Shell service stations. It is a reissue of the Bugeye from 1971 with a few changes.

The reissue has enamel instead of Spectraflame paint and lacks painted taillights. Rounded protectors were added to the base next to the rear wheels.
