Description

The '55 Chevy Panel debuted with a metal body and metal unpainted chassis, and has "Hot Wheels Chopper" on the sides with an opening rear door that reveals a Chopper inside that pulls out. In 2016, the casting was retooled with a closed trunk. The opening trunk was re-introduced in 2019 for a convention release.

In posters, this casting was titled "Custom '56 Chevy Panel".
