Description

The Sugar Caddy is a modified version of the Custom Eldorado and debuted as part of the Spoilers series in 1971. It's name is a play-on-words of the popular slang phrase of the early 1970's, 'sugar daddy'. It was manufactured at the Hong Kong assembly plant, painted in various Spectraflame colors and came with an opening hood, black painted grille, numbered sticker (1-9) on the door, blue tinted glass and either a dark or white interior (some colored cars could not be found with both colored interiors, shown in table) and was packaged with a decal sheet of sponsors logos and either a metal or plastic 'collectors button'. The opening hood is very fragile and can be found broken on some played-with cars. The glass is also very exposed and may have scratches, scuffs and cracks even on good-condition cars.

As with most cars from the 'Spectraflame Era' (1968-1972), there can be some confusion in colors due to shade differences in the paint. Some Spectraflame Red cars can look like a lighter, pinkish 'Watermelon' or 'Rose' color, while some Spectraflame Brown cars may appear 'Copper'. 

The Sugar Caddy in Spectraflame Magenta is very hard to find and is regarded as one of the rarest of all Redline Hot Wheels.

It was also manufactured in Mexico by CIPSA. Very few of these models are known to exist and they are usually found in poor condition. (More information below).

In 2009, the Sugar Caddy was re-tooled for the HotWheelsCollectors.com Series 8 Neo Classics Series.

CIPSA Versions

In the early 1970's, the Sugar Caddy was manufactured by CIPSA in Mexico for the Mexican market. These versions differ from the regular versions in a couple of small ways. The grille is painted body color (not black) and the interior is a stark white as opposed to the creamier white of the Hong Kong versions. Despite being manufactured in Mexico, they are still marked with 'Hong Kong' on the base.
