Custom Volkswagen

The Hot Wheels Custom Volkswagen was based upon a Volkswagen Beetle with a single front seat, center steering wheel, and a blown V-8 engine.

The die-cast vehicle was a 1968 release and was designed by Ira Gilford. It features a sliding sunroof, bearing redline wheels, and an interior that can be white, tan, or brown. The car is available in many Spectraflame colors.

Production was in the U.S. and Hong Kong. A U.S. car has clear windows, a molded steering wheel, metal engine, and silver painted headlights.

Hong Kong cars have blue windows, a separate black steering wheel, plastic engine, and a base with mechanical details, “Hong Kong”, and suspension holes. The headlights are part of the base and are visible through holes in the body.

A Custom Volkswagen can be found without a sunroof. This Hong Kong variation also lacks side windows.

Included with the car was a collector’s button. The button has a green car, “Custom Volkswagen”, and a yellow background. It can have a notched or smooth tab. A variation can be found with “Custom VW” and a notched tab.
