Description

Mighty Maverick was introduced in the 1970 Hot Wheels line-up. Based on the 1969 Ford Maverick with alot more flare. 

It was originally named 'Mad Maverick' during the prototype and pre-production stages. A few models exist with the 'Mad Maverick' name on the base and are very rare. The name was changed due to Johnny Lightning having a Ford Maverick also named 'Mad Maverick'. 

It was manufactured in both the USA and Hong Kong and released with a large plastic wing on the rear and an opening hood and came packaged with a metal 'Collectors Button'. USA cars came with a wide printed white stripe on the roof, clear glass and an all-black grille, while Hong Kong cars had a thin sticker white stripe, blue glass and a black grille with silver headlights. Some USA cars have been found with a black stripe, though these may possibly be pre-production cars. Some Hong Kong cars in Orange and Copper came with brown rear wings and interiors, these are very hard-to-find. Some Hong Kong cars also came with a matte-black painted roof with the white stripe applied over the top. 

The rear wing is often missing, and such has been acurately reproduced. 

The Mighty Maverick was produced in Mexico by CIPSA and is one of the most common CIPSA cars.

In 1973, the wing was removed and the car was renamed Street Snorter and in 1975 it returned to the Mighty Maverick name, still without the wing.

In 2004, the Mighty Maverick was re-tooled as part of the HotWheelsCollectors.com Real Riders Series.
