History of Tom "Mongoo$e" McEwen

Description

The Mongoo$e has come out it several versions, which seems to confuse people about either the name or the car driven by Tom McEwen. First off the only car Tom drove was a Duster, Mattel in cost saving measures started only issuing one cast( the cuda) years later with both "Mongoo$e" & "Snake" on the side. Mattel official names for the Tom "Mongoo$e" McEwen cars are easy;


Mongoose


Mongoose II


There are also Dragsters;


Mongoose Rail Dragster (front engine)


Mongoose Rear Engine Dragster (wedge)

Tom never even drove a wedge style dragster aka Rear engine.  The "Mongoo$e" was issued in enamel Red. with lifting body to show the chassis, a prop to hold it up and a black roll cage.
