I know this has been shown several times already in LaLD, but this unique looking transporter is one heck of a replica that’s worth seeing again and again.

I like how there are humps on the rail of the flat bed to prevent the car from sliding off. However the bed does not slide out so this is just a static model.

The body is metal while the chassis is plastic. The wheels are also plastic but I’m glad it did not used generic but rather stock. wheels.

What’s unique about this is the opening features. Both doors can be opened but rarely do you see 1/64 with an opening trunk.

The car has some suspension but the wheels do not roll as fast as the Hot wheels. Metal on both body and chassis with plastic interior.
