Today’s redline treat is the Hot Wheels Custom Cougar.
These two examples are both Hong Kong versions. The fact that they have blue glass tells their place of origin. The US versions had clear glass.
The black painted top was a Hong Kong only feature. Not all Hong Kong Cougars had a painted top, but no US Cougars did.
The copper and blue are two of the most popular colors for this casting.
This is still one of my favorite early castings.
