Produced 2006
Designer Phil Riehlman
Number J3278
55 Chevy Panel - 06FE

Description

The '55 Chevy Panel made its debut as #37 2006 First Edition. It quickly became popular with both Collectors and Customizers. The First Edition '55 Chevy Panel is Metalflake Blue with a metal body and metal unpainted chassis, and has "Hot Wheels Chopper" on the sides with an opening rear door that reveals a Chopper inside that pulls out. There is also a variation of the First Edition with a Black painted grill.

For the 2009 Holiday variation (1 of 5,000), the '55 Panel was given a pull-out snowmobile instead of a chopper.


2007 Fun Fact #30 of 180: The '55 Chevy Panel was the heaviest model of 2006, weighing over 80 grams.
