READ THIS DESCRIPTION IN FULL! This is one of the most fun restorations I've ever done, the ultra rare'67 Cheetah, which we all know was renamed to the Python very shortly after production which is what this car is. This will be the only one offered for sale, there won't be any more after this.Only 5 original production Cheetahs from Mattel are known to exist but yet almost the entire 1968 production of blister cards lists the Cheetah on the back and not the Python. The cool part is I have displayed it in a correct reproduction unpunched'67 Cheetah blister packs.
The metal button has a reproduction decal on it. I did not chrome this body prior to painting as I wanted it to show the original mottling and since this represents one of the earliest Hot Wheels, I added the deep dish wheels. I have a handful of redlines brought back from the crusher that I have resurrected this way and are listing now. A great backstory regarding one of the original Cheetahs was obtained by a man who had sent away for a cereal company promotion Mattel was sponsoring and he received one of these. These are all from a smoke free home and have been in storage.Take a look at the pics as what you see is what you get. Lets makes these auctions smooth and trade positive feedbacks at the end of the day.
