Description

The Demon was a car in the 1970 Hot Wheels series, based on the Dave Stuckey customized '32 Ford Lil' Coffin show car of the '50s-60s. Generally found with black interior, it can be found with white interior. Magenta is found with white interior only and is considered rare.

The casting was later renamed Prowler from 1973 - 1983. Some 1973 releases were found with the Demon base as Mattel used up old stock - these do not significantly affect the value. The casting got a new tool & die to be  released as The Demon in 1993 for the 25th Anniversary Series and current reissues.

  • The Li'l Coffin, also known to Hot Wheels Collectors as The Demon or Prowler, was originally built by Dave Stuckey in the mid-50's, and then modified through the years. It was purchased and updated by Darryl Starbird for Monogram models and went on tour with the ICAS in 1963-64. This chopped and channeled '32 Ford sedan features a cantilevered roof and a "floating" windshield. It's powered by a 426 Hemi, "6-Pack" (six single barrel carburetors), and has a fully pleated white leather interior.
  • The Photo and information for the full scale Li'l Coffin is sourced from the book "Showtime" by Michael Sheridan and Sam Bushala
