Description

The Ice 'T' is a Hot Wheels casting which debuted in the 1971 Hot Wheels range of vehicles. It was originally designed by Tom Daniel for Monogram plastic model kits. At Hot Wheels, Larry Wood slightly modified it for 1:64 scale. 

Its original release was only produced in Enamel Yellow with a yellow roof. It featured blue ice bricks in the rear and an opening tailgate. Some 1971 Ice 'T' are known to have issues with a type of metal fatigue called 'Crumbling' where the body or chassis develops cracks and literally crumbles into pieces. All 1971 versions were packaged with a plastic 'collectors button'

It was released again in 1973 where it saw multiple colors. 1973 versions had the ice bricks removed and the roof was white plastic without black detailing on the embossed letters. As with most 1973 cars, it had the older style 'Capped' Redline wheels on the rear and the newer style 'Hole Through' wheels on the front.

In 1974 it was released in the Flying Colors series with a green and orange tampo on the front. It came out in two colors, the more common Enamel Light Green or the rare alternate Enamel Yellow. The Light Green version was also released in 1977 with Blackwall wheels for the Flying Colors and identically in 1978 in the Classy Customs. It was also released in Japan in a small red cardboard box 'Red Box' #1. 

In the 1980's it was produced in Mexico and France and saw multiple hard-to-find variations.

In 2010 it was re-tooled for the HotWheelsCollectors.com Series 9 Neo Classics.
