Description

The Boss Hoss is a modified version of the 1968 Custom Mustang which debuted in the 1971 Hot Wheels Spoilers Series. It features front and rear spoilers, an exaggerated rake to accommodate larger rear wheels and an exposed blown engine.

This is not the first time the Boss Hoss was used, it came out the year prior (1970) in a 'Club Kit', a mail-in promotion for Hot Wheels collectors to be a part of the 'Hot Wheels Club' and receive a certificate and a special chrome plated car; either the King Kuda, Heavy Chevy or Boss Hoss. The Boss Hoss Silver Special, as it was called, was chrome plated and featured black painted details on the rear. 

The Boss Hoss could be found in stores in 1971 and was painted in various Spectraflame colors with some having a black painted roof. Some cars have been found in what's called an 'Over-Chrome' finish, where leftover chrome cars from the Club Kit were painted Spectraflame colors over the chrome giving the cars an extra shiny mirror finish.

1971 versions had a white circle sticker on either door with a number from 1 to 9 and two black stripes over the top, it also came packaged with a sheet of sponsors stickers to be applied by the owner if they wished. It came with blue tinted windows and either a white, silver or dark brown interior. It was also packaged with a metal 'Collectors Button'.

In 1975 it would be released without the blown motor and renamed Mustang Stocker, this casting was used until 1984.

In 2005 it was re-tooled for the HotWheelsCollectors.com Series 4 and has been released several times since.
