Description

The 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 with not just one blown engine, 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 and a Black interior. Made in the USA only. Capped style red lines only.

The Grass Hopper has come out in the following 1/64 scale versions:
