Hot Wheels For Real: This Running Recreation Of The 1968 Hot Wheels Redline VW Bug Comes With A Ramp Truck!

Hot Wheels have launched the dreams and passions of millions of gearheads over the years. Their impact on the popular culture of cars, racing, customs, and hot rodding in general continues in a big way today. We love when people are so inspired that they are driven to quite literally drive the car of their dreams in real life. You have to be really obsessed to take a little toy you pushed around on the floor as a kid and later build it into a real car but we truly love it.

In this case the recreation was inspired by a V8 powered VW Beetle as part of the famed “Redline” series of Hot Wheels from the late 1960s. To say that this car is dead-nuts on would be an understatement. The way it sits, the tires, the little small block under the hood. It’s freaking perfect when compared to the little version that inspired it.

What takes this to the next level is the 1975 Chevy C30 that is the chariot for the Beetle to cruise around on when headed to shows and stuff. The truck is freaking beautiful. The 454 is clean and mean, the paint is great, and the interior is seemingly flawless. The seller won’t bust them apart and we dig that.

What a package of awesomeness!

    With that tire offset and the distance to the fenderwells, the VW probably has a bigger turning radius that the dually hauler…
