Description

Top Eliminator was released in 1974. It debuted the new Flying Colors theme tampo on its side. This casting is a reissue of the Snake casting, based on a Pyymouth 'Cuda Funny Car. Early versions have capped redline wheels, along with a base that has less detail and unreinforced. The base changed to a reinforced version with more details. Black plastic roll cage and the body prop is still gone.

The blister pack for 1974 was changed to a white background with cars (Baja Breaker, Heavy Chevy & P-917) flying off the card. The Card itself was 7" x 4.5" and featured the Red Flying Colors Logo.
