Hot Wheels 1973 Snake II

It may not be mint but it’s still one of the tough cars to find for 1973 being the white Snake II. From past research it had a low run with the yellow color but white is more sought after.

What helps ID this as the 73 and not a 71 is the open axle front wheels with cap rears, no tabs for the front bar that held up the body and the 6969 located on the body and base. A few years ago mint ones where commanding high prices all in the three digits and even well played one where still high. I was able to get this for a low price after some haggling. I tried to remove the red paint but was eatting away at the white paint so I stopped. Others have said they would have striped it down and re-painted it. I couldn’t do that cause it would lose its originality of being a true white snake and people would say “oh you just re-painted the yellow one. It’s one of them cars you can’t restore if you want to hold on to what it is.
