1970 Redline Hot Wheels

37 New Models for 1970

 

The third year of Hot Wheels features 34 additional models.  3 new series were created, the Heavyweights, the Spoilers and the Mongoose and Snake Race Team models.  Also popular were the Chrome Club Cars which came only in a small box set with a large annual catalog and iron-on transfer.  One of the models the Boss Hoss Silver Special was available by mail-order and came in an envelope.  I can almost remember getting mine in the mail back then.  The Skyshow Set featured either a Fleetside or Deora with a ramp on the back and tiny planes that would fly off the at the end of the downhill track. These two models were the only two that did not have a collectors pin to match.
