Python

The Hot Wheels Python is based upon the Car Craft Dream Rod built by Bill Cushenberry and designed by the staff of Car Craft Magazine. It is a custom build that used parts from a Pontiac, Corvair, Studebaker, and other cars.

The die-cast vehicle was a 1968 release that was designed by Harry Bradley. It features a wide range of Spectraflame colors, a flat black painted roof, and bearing redline wheels. Interior color can be white, tan, grey, brown, or black.

Production was in the U.S. and Hong Kong. U.S. cars have clear windows and and the headlights and taillights are part of the base.

Hong Kong cars have blue tinted windows, a blower-equipped engine, and a base with suspension holes and “Hong Kong”. The headlights and taillights are part of the body.

The Python has several variations. Cars can be found with a black roof that extends down the rear. Hong Kong cars can be found without black roofs and some early run cars have long tail pipes.

Originally, the Python was called the Cheetah, but the name was changed early in the production. There is a rare Hong Kong version that has “Cheetah” on the base.

Included with the car was a collector’s button. The button has a Python on a blue background and can have a notched tab or a smooth tab.
