The Mustang-Show Hoss ll was based on the original Mustang ll funny car dragster. This Hot Wheel was manufactured with the following features:
- Metal chassis
- Black plastic interior *
- Lift-up body “funny car style”
- Metal-unpainted engine
- Basic or redline wheels
- Yellow in color
- Dark-red, white and black tampo – Show Horse ll racing decal on hood
- Manufactured in Hong Kong only
* The French version had a tan interior/1983
Remember, if you are beginning to collect Hot Wheels, I highly recommend your getting a good reference/price guide. My favorites have always been Tomart’s Price Guide to Hot Wheels: Volume 1: 1968 – 1996 and Tomart’s Price Guide to Hot Wheels, Vol. 2: 1997 to 2008, 6th Edition . They are both very easy to use and have great information – as well as good pictures.
“Tip of the Week”
Become familiar with the various types of tires, i.e., wheels used on the different Hot Wheels that you are planning on buying. Wheel variations is one of the keys to the value of certain Hot Wheels.
