If you thought wheels for your car were expensive – you should look up the Hot Wheels GMC Motor Home #9645 in your nearest Tomart’s Price Guide to Hot Wheels: Volume 1: 1968 – 1996 This seemingly common vehicle produced by Mattel in 1977 could be a real find IF you find one with RSW (red line wheels) and the seller doesn’t know that the wheels make all the difference.
The orange ‘Palm Beach’ version of the GMC Motor Home with RSW is listed at $500.00. But, if it has the more common Basic Wheel, you can pick one up for around $10.00. The ‘Palm Beach’ variation in the orange color also comes with:
1. Blue tinted windshield
2. Metal chassis
3. Manufactured in Hong Kong (only)
If you are lucky enough to find one of these ‘Palm Beach’ Hot Wheels with RSW, be very careful and check the wheels. Make sure they have not been ‘added on’ to increase the value of what would ordinarily be a common find.
