Model: Hot Wheels ’76 Ford Gran Torino
Line: Kmart September Event Mail-in Exclusive
Why it’s in the collection: Well, it’s a Torino. I love the Torino. It isn’t the ’72, which is my favorite, but it is a Torino. This is only the second time this casting has been released. It was originally made for Retro Entertainment, as the Starsky & Hutch cop car (hence the roof light). That batch wasn’t released to big box stores, so it wasn’t well known. Releasing it as a mail-in doesn’t help the casting’s familiarity either. But trust me, it is nice.
