Description

The Hood is a Hot Wheels casting, designed by Larry Wood , which was first released in the 1971 lineup. It appears to take design inspiration from early coach-built cars where the driver would sit in the front and the passenger would sit in an enclosed cabin. A neat feature on this car is the plastic roof, which covers the driver's compartment, can slide back into the roof. It was manufactured in both USA and Hong Kong and came out in various Spectraflame colors with some from Hong Kong having the roof painted black (more information below). USA manufactured cars have a black interior and clear glass and Hong Kong manufactured cars have a dark brown interior and blue tinted glass.
