Description

The Mutt Mobile is a hot-rodded dog truck, designed by Larry Wood, which debuted in the 1971 Hot Wheels range of vehicles. It features an exposed motor and exhaust pipes, control stick steering, and a rear compartment to transport dogs in. The rear compartment has a opening door which reveals two white dogs.  

The 1971 version came was manufactured in Hong Kong and came painted in various Spectraflame colors, of which Aqua is the most common and Rose is the hardest to find. It was packaged with a plastic collectors button. The rear compartment and interior are loosely fit and are suseptible to falling out, thankfully it can be replaced with parts from the 1994 retooled version which are more readily avaliable and far less valuable.

The Mutt Mobile was re-released in 1973 under a new name, Odd Job. The Odd Job could only be found in enamel and flourescent colors. They came with the newer style 'Hole-Through' wheels, but some could be found with the older style 'Capped' wheels on the rear. The dogs were removed from the rear and 'Mutt Mobile' was also removed from the side of the rear canopy. 

The Odd Job was also manufactured in Mexico by CIPSA, these versions are very hard to find and are often in poor condition (more information below).

In 1994, the Mutt Mobile was retooled for the 1994 Vintage Series II after a 31 year absence.

CIPSA 'Odd Job' Versions

The Odd Job was manufactured in Mexico by CIPSA. These models are extremely rare and are often found in poor condition. They are very similar to the standard release except most come with strange looking Blackwall wheels and the paint looks slightly different. The Odd Job is also one of two CIPSA castings to be found still on the original card, the other being the Superfine Turbine

The Odd Job has come out in the following 1/64 scale versions:
