1978 Baja breaker grey BW


Description

This 4x4 van was introduced in 1978 as the Baja Breaker in Gray to the Hot Wheels line-up with Large Blackwalls (BW), along with the Bywayman, the first vehicles with Large Blackwalls front and back. The designers made a special lifted base to fit these, as they share the same base. The design is based on the 3rd generation Ford Econoline.

Versions

The original release of the Baja Breaker feature 2 rear windows. The casting was retooled shortly after its release with a single rear window (see Gallery below). The gray 1978 release is the only version with 2 separate windows. The gray 1978 version with a single window is more difficult to find. The Baja Breaker has been issued in the following versions:
