Years and Description

Multipacks were introduced in 1970 and have come in many forms. They have been issued yearly since 1975. The back of the packages provides an assorment of information on other Multipacks, although Mattel  would change colors and cars without notice. The 6-Pack generally came with the cars in  a horizontal position.
