The Hot Wheels Bye-Focal is based upon a heavily modified 1970 Dodge Challenger. The muscle car features a long see-through hood and double engines.

The die-cast car was a 1971 release that was designed by Larry Wood. Production was in Hong Kong.

It can be found in a variety of Spectraflame colors. Details include blue tinted windows, a brown interior, painted taillights, and capped redline wheels. The hood can be clear or tinted blue.

There is a variation with the Bye-Focal’s engine. Most of the engines have fuel injectors, but on some the injectors are missing.

Included with the vehicle was a plastic collector’s button. It has a purple Bye-Focal on a blue background.

Also included was a sticker sheet with Bye-Focal graphics. A sticker was pre-applied on the right side of the car.

The Bye-Focal is known for “crumbling”. Crumbling is when the body or base cracks and eventually breaks into pieces. This is caused by impure metals being used in the zamac alloy.
