Description

The Classic '57 T-Bird was a car from the 1969 Hot Wheels line-up. They were packaged with a Hong Kong or U.S.A. metal 'Collector's Button'. It was only issued with a USA casting, and came with either white or dark brown interior colors. There was at least one casting change to the base during it's release. The fuel tank that protrudes down from the rear of the base is longer/bigger on some versions.
In 2012 the Classic '57 T-Bird was re-tooled for the Red Line Club Membership.
