Description

Heavy Chevy was a car in the 1970 Hot Wheels line-up based off a '68 Camaro. Introduced with a new concept, by grouping cars that are alike and calling it a series or family. The Heavy Chevy was part of the Spoiler series. This group or series the Spoilers feature the cars with no engine hoods and the motor sticking up out of the engine bay.

They came in a special blisterpack with art work designed by Otto Kuhni , It featured a Boss Hoss with a # 1 on the door, Otto gave it a look to as which it was moving and fast. Bold writing on the cardboard : SPOILERS Souped Up   Super Rods !!

The Heavy Chevy  was issued from Hong Kong and can be found with assorted interior colors. They all had White Stripes across the top, They also  had numbers on the side, that ranged from 1 to 9 both were Factory pre-applied.. Under the car was a water decal stickers sheet, it has small race theme stickers on it.The Heavy Chevy can be found with Spectraflame paint over a Club Kit Car chrome, Making it  Candy paint over chrome, it really pops.

There is a Prototype made in Creamy Pink. I also remember seeing a tangerine orange, not sure if it was a prototype for 1970 or 1974.

In 2002 Mattel brought back the Heavy Chevy with a new tool & die
