Big things with little cars
Big things with little cars

Of all the research I’ve conducted to name cars and series and collector numbers, I’ve only been stumped once.

In this pic you see various 1993 25th anniversary cars as well as 1994 Vintage II cars. Toward the bottom are some of the 1985 era Crack Ups crash cars, which were a totally unique idea for a diecast. There are even a few period mainlines for good measure. But one of these is not like the other.

On the bottom row is the Crack Ups police cruiser with its side crash molding that flips to become normal, but this other police cruiser, this one is an anomaly.

With all of the research I’ve done, I’ve never been able to find out exactly what this is or what series and year it goes back to.

You can see the base is largely unmarked save for Mattel Inc. Malaysia 1985, and has a screw mechanism.

This mechanism allows the body to be detached to see what’s inside or whatever else you do with such a thing.

Problem is, there is literally zero information regarding this car on the web that I could find.

Does anyone know what this car is or anything else about it? If there ever was a cry for help, this would be it. I’m at a loss. And in this business, for me, that doesn’t happen often.

Thank you to anyone who can offer some insight.
