Twin Mill Description

Introduced  in 1969 Ira's concept car was a Original Hot Wheel. It was designed from the ground up in house at Mattel. The Twin Mill has become one of the most recognizable and popular Hot Wheels casting for generations, enough that a full-size replica of the car was created and displayed at autoshows.

Early versions saw what is called "Cut Fenders". These adhere to the drawings Ira made. This is proclaimed to be a prototype. Many different colors do exist, Antifreeze, Orange, Red, Apple Green, Creamy Pink.

This casting was made in the USA only.



It has led to three other follow-up castings, the Twin Mill II (1993) and Twin Mill III, as well as a Toon Car Casting.
