The Special Delivery is a Hot Wheels casting which debuted in the 1971 Hot Wheels range of vehicles. It is a mail-themed hot rod, with a mailbox as a body and a park-bench as a seat.
It was only produced once and in only one color; blue. Due to inconsistancies in the Spectraflame painting process, many differences in shades of blue can be found.
It came packaged with decal sheet with five stickers, 'US Mail' for either side of the mailbox, a smaller 'US Mail' for the fuel tank/suitcase on the rear, 'Special Delivery' for the rear and a guage cluster for the back of the engine and an artists impression of the car. It also came packaged with a plastic 'Collectors Button'.
The Special Delivery has not been seen since 1971.
