Snake Fuel Dragster

The Hot Wheels Snake Fuel Dragster, also known as a Snake Rail Dragster, is based upon the car driven by Don “The Snake” Prudhomme. Don Prudhomme along with his racing rival, Tom “The Mongoose” McEwen, were drag racers that were sponsored by Hot Wheels.

The die-cast car was a 1971 release that was designed by Larry Wood and produced in the U.S. It has white enamel paint and a white driver. The front wheels can be black or clear with black paint. The back wheels are capped. Neither set of wheels have red lines.

Small balancer wheels and a counterweight that can lock in place are at the back of the dragster. They let the car do wheelies while racing.

The Snake Fuel Dragster was available with the Mongoose Fuel Dragster. They could be found in the Mongoose & Snake Dragster Pak or the Mongoose & Snake Wild Wheelie Set.

The Dragster Pak had the two dragsters and wheelie balancer track joiners. Balancer tracks bring the dragsters out of wheelies. The Wild Wheelie Set included the dragsters, 32 feet of track, a launcher, finish gate, 4 drag chutes, chute traps, and more.

Also included with the dragsters was a sticker sheet and a decal sheet. The stickers had the Hot Wheels logo, “Snake I”, and “Mongoose I”. The decals featured Goodyear, Wynn’s, and other logos.
