The Real Deora

Deora real.jpgDeora 100L.JPG


  • The Dodge Deora was designed by Harry Bradley and commissioned in 1964 to show-winning customizers Mike and Larry Alexander. It was then unveiled in their home town during the Detroit Autorama in 1967, where it won the coveted Riddler Award. The Deora is based on the mid-engined Dodge D-100 and the back hatch of a 1960 Ford stationwagon. It was chopped, sectioned, and channeled to create the fully functional, futuristic pickup. Entrance into the candy gold painted custom is achieved by lifting up the windshield and entering through the front. The truck continued to tour with the ICAS tour and racked up numerous awards on the way.
  • The Photo and information for the full scale Deora is sourced from the book "Showtime" by Michael Sheridan and Sam Bushala

Description

Deora ad (Small).jpg

The Deora was part of the Original 16 in the 1968 Hot Wheels series. The car was based on the 1964 Dodge Deora, a real-life concept truck designed by Harry Bradley, (who, by 1968 was working as Hot Wheels' own designer) and built by Larry and Mike Alexander. The Cars were packaged with a 'Collector's Button'.

In 2000, Nathan Proch designed a sequel to this casting, named the Deora II. It was loosely based on the original, but more streamlined and aerodynamic. One year later, in 2003, a full-size working version of the Deora II was built, bringing the legend of the Deora full-circle.

The Deora is most recognized for its' two detachable plastic surfboards. This casting is the only model from the Redline era to have four small Redline tires.
