Description

This is also known as '57 T-Bird Convertible and Ford Thunderbird. Although Mattel aquired Corgi in 1989, models never mixed until 1996 when there were several corgi casting found in the Hot Wheels line-up. This was quite short lived though. Although similar in appearence to '57 T-Bird (1978), this model is a former Corgi casting, and they are in fact 2 different cars. There is a push button on the base to pop the opening hood up.
