The Hot Wheels Snorkel is an original design of a bucket truck. The die-cast vehicle was a 1971 release that was designed by Ira Gilford and Larry Wood. Production was in Hong Kong.

It can be found in white enamel as well as many Spectraflame colors. Details entail blue tinted windows, a white or brown interior, and capped redline wheels.

The bed is white with a red articulated boom lift and basket. The bed attaches to a short-bed truck that is also used with several other vehicles. “The Heavyweights” is on the base.

The Snorkel was released as part of the Heavyweights series. Included with the truck was a plastic collector’s button. It has a blue Snorkel on a light green background.

The Snorkel 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.
