The First Hot Wheels Car Ever Made
Hot Wheels were conceived to be more like "tricked out" cars, as compared to Matchbox cars which were more city or "real life" cars. There were sixteen castings released in 1968, eleven of them designed by Harry Bentley Bradley. The first one produced was a dark blue Custom Camaro.

Hot Wheels Red Line
A "Redline" Hot Wheels car is one that was manufactured within the first ten years of production, 1968 to 1977. The term "redline" derives from the fact that, during that period, the cars were manufactured with a red stripe on the tire.

How many Hot Wheels cars have been made?
Today, there are more Hot Wheels models than real cars in the world. Over 4,000,000,000 (yes, four billion) have been produced since the first was cast in 1968.
