Description

The Evil Weevil is a Hot Wheels casting which debuted in the 1971 Hot Wheels Spoilers Series. It is a modified version of the Custom Volkswagen from 1968 with two blown V8 engines.

It was manufactured at the Hong Kong factory and was painted in several Spectraflame colors with Blue being the most common and Magenta the hardest to find. It could be found with either a white or dark brown interior with white being more desirable. Like other Spoilers, it was packaged with a pre-applied door sticker with a number of 1 through to 9, although some have been found with the sticker missing while still in it's original package. It also came packaged with an sheet of additional stickers that the owner could apply, and either a metal or plastic 'Collectors Button'. All Evil Weevils have medium 'Capped' wheels in the front and large 'Capped' wheels in the rear and all came with blue tinted glass with a movable sunroof.

In 2004, the Evil Weevil was retooled for the HotWheelsCollectors.com Series 3 - Neo-Classics Series and has been used multiple times since.

This casting is not to be confused with the Eevil Weevil, a 1986 casting of similar name.
