TNT-Bird was a car in the 1970 Hot Wheels series.

☀The Ira Guilford designed TNT-Bird. Guilford gave Hot Wheels a casting that is a custom version of the 1969 Ford Thunderbird. A supercharged V-8 with its hood deleted powers the Ford, and the rear has been lifted to accommodate larger rear wheels and tires. Guilford also added a trunk top spoiler in keeping with the theme. We see the elements of the '69 T-Bird like hidden headlights and the softly arched, (behind-the-doors), fender line.
