The Hi-Po Hauler is a Hot Wheels vehicle which debuted in 2018 as an RLC Exclusive. It is based on the real-life Hi-Po Hauler, a modified Ford Econoline Pickup created by the members of the 'Gas Monkey Garage' on the television show Fast & Loud.
The Hot Wheels version was designed by Brendon Vetuskey, and while based on the '60s Ford Econoline Pickup casting, it is completely different. Changes include a stretched wheelbase, single seat and three-spoke steering wheel interior with chrome pedals, metal rear truck bed with holes through the frame rails to the ground, radiator underneath the vehicle on the base, and the enormous engine in the rear truck bed.
The Hi-Po Hauler has come out in the following 1/64 scale versions:
