Description

The Demon was a car in the 1970 Hot Wheels series, based on the Dave Stuckey customized '32 Ford Lil' Coffin show car of the '50s-60s. Generally found with black interior, it can be found with white interior. Magenta is found with white interior only and is considered rare.

The casting was later renamed Prowler from 1973 - 1983. Some 1973 releases were found with the Demon base as Mattel used up old stock - these do not significantly affect the value. The casting got a new tool & die to be  released as The Demon in 1993 for the 25th Anniversary Series and current reissues.
