Description

Grass Hopper was a jeep in the 1971 Hot Wheels series. Based on the tried & true Willys MB US Army jeep. This one had that Hot Rod Hot Wheels twist not just one blown but two! Still the speed produced was just under the speed of light so they threw in a nice sun shade canopy. Miners tools were cast into the body, Pick, Shovel,Canteen,Gas Can and Tool box along with a metal base. Black interior. Made in the USA only. Capped style redlines only
