The Paddy Wagon is a Hot Wheels casting which debuted in 1970. It is based on the Monogram Model Kit which was originally designed by Tom Daniel. It saw a few releases with in the 1970's with Redline and Blackwall wheels. Prototypes exist in SF orange and SF blue - typically without the POLICE text on the sides of the roof. It also saw some international releases in France and Mexico.

In 1993, it was retooled as part of the 25th Anniversary Series. After a 1994 release in the FAO Schwarz Gold Series Collection, it wasn't seen until 2009 where it was re-released again as part of the Classics Series and renamed the Copper Stopper.
