This to me is a Hot Wheels holy grail. This is not only a redline, but has Larry Wood history as well. I suspect very few collectors know the story.
This was written in by Larry without thinking to remove it before it went into production. Suddenly Larry realized his plight! The rest is history and this wrecker is that history! Naturally production runs were instantly halted and changed ASAP. MOC: The vehicle is in near mint or mint state as carded.
Vintage vehicles may have minor flaws from age, storage, and tampo's back in the day were often less than perfect to begin with. Remember these are the early days of tampo's. The cards often show age and have flaws. At 43 years old just finding them in a blister is a miracle.
