The real life Lil Coffin started life as a 1932 Ford Sedan. Although sometimes credited to Darryl Starbird, the Lil Coffin was actually built by Dave Stuckey, who worked for Darryl in his 'Star Kustom Shop'. Work began on the car in 1954 and went through several major design changes and iterations over the next thirty to forty years. In 2009, the car was restored back to its most famous body-style.
The Hot Wheels version was first seen in 1970 under the name 'The Demon', although this casting differs from the original. The 100% Hot Wheels version includes a detailed engine, with exhaust pipes, headlights and gauges. It was only used once before being discontinued.
The Lil Coffin has come out in the following 1/64 scale versions:
