Description
Lot #1342.1 - This is the 1968 Chevrolet Corvette Hot Wheels commissioned build by Gas Monkey Garage. When Mattel approached Richard Rawlings about doing a line of Gas Monkey Garage Hot Wheels cars, to say he was excited would be an understatement. He says he immediately had visions of this car, a 427, 4-speed 1968 Corvette with a radical, blown big block, crazy custom metal-flake paint riding on custom 20X12" and 18X8" U.S. Mags with a one-off set of custom MT Sportsmans, complete with the signature red line custom-molded into the tires. They started with a very solid 1968 Coupe that was originally ordered with a 427 and 4-speed manual transmission. The Monkeys then went through the entire car, replacing all of the suspension, brakes and steering components with brand-new components and replacing the complete interior to like-new specifications. The original 427 was completely gone through to ensure it would be up to the task of receiving the air/fuel mixture a Weiand 871 blower and dual Holley 750s would deliver. A custom one-off exhaust was fabricated to dump straight through the side gills. Attention was then focused on the exterior, with a set of L88 rear flares integrated into the body before it was covered with a custom House of Kolor metal-flake fade paint job. The entire build was documented on the hit show "Fast N' Loud," documenting the level of craftsmanship and expertise that went into this one-of-a-kind build. This is the first official car of the Mattel Gas Monkey Garage Hot Wheels cars to be produced. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a piece of automotive history in the making.
