Top Eliminator was released in 1974. It debuted the new Flying Colors theme tampo on its side. This casting is a reissue of the Snake casting, based on a Plymouth Barracuda Funny Car. Early versions have capped redline wheels, along with a base that has less detail and is unreinforced. The base was later retooled with more reinforcement and more details. The black plastic roll cage and the body prop are still gone.
The blister pack for 1974 was changed to a white background with cars (Baja Breaker, Heavy Chevy & P-917) flying off the card. The Card itself was 7" x 4.5" and featured the Red Flying Colors Logo.
The Top Eliminator has come out in the following 1/64 scale versions:
