Custom Fleetside Description

The Custom Fleetside is a Hot Wheels car that debuted as one of the Original 16 Hot Wheels in the 1968 line. The Chevy Fleetside was designed by Harry Bradley and based on his own heavily customized 1964 Chevy El Camino. This is the car all other Hot Wheels were styled after "with that California Custom look". Red stiped tires, custom details.

Early Hong Kong bases were painted the same color as the main body under the tail of the car.


The casting was released again in 1970 (with a few minor alterations), as the Sky Show Fleetside. After this version, the original tool was no longer used.

On the Custom Fleestside, the interior does not stretch into the bed area, and there is no square hole cut into the truck bed. There is a divider partition flush with the back of the cab, then a gap (to allow the tonneau cover to raise up and down) and then the back wall of the truck bed. The taillights are painted vertically on the Custom Fleetside. The Custom Fleetsides were all painted with black roofs.
