1968 Redline Hot Wheels

All 16 models were made in the USA and Hong Kong

 

The first year of Hot Wheels featured 16 models in many colors of paint called "Spectraflame".  Finding the original 16 Hot Wheels in the original packages or in barely touched condition is very hard to do.  Especially the models called "Customs" like the Custom Mustang and Custom Cougar.  The cars that are hardest to find were never included in the Shell Gas Station giveaways and were discontinued sooner. The models that were included in giveaways and made for several years are the ones you will see more of in your search for 1968 Hot Wheels.
