5. Hot Wheels Mongoose and Snake Funny Cars

1970-PLYMOUTH-BARRACUDA-HOT-WHEELS-SNAKE-FUNNY-CAR

Here is a chance to own two pieces of racing history. In the early 1970s Mattel began a campaign to promote the company’s Hot Wheels brand with the creation of two Funny Car dragsters; the Plymouth Barracuda ‘Snake’ and Plymouth Duster ‘Mongoose’. Racing head to head all across America, these cars were sold in toy stores nationwide.

Although the Duster is a recreation commissioned by Mattell, the Barracuda is an original car that has undergone a full restoration. Oh, and they both do come with a matching, vintage haulers.

    more like ass money as Sue so aptly states, I expect less than half of that

    Ass Monkey car won’t bring squat…even though it was properly repaired, nobody wants a ghetto’d out F40 with Fast and Furious headlights. Dennis will be lucky if he breaks even on that hoopty.

    -F40 despite it wreck beginnings I am sure they will find the minor upgrades and color will make a unique find. Plus its pretty fast and I am sure Dennis will throw in a Gas Monkey T-shirt and picture with Richard / Arron

    don’t care what nit picking anybody has about this car…it is definately BAD ASS!!!

    Has anyone ever asked to see these Ferrari Certifcations? My understanding is that Ferrari removed the car from the service department within days of its arrival. Alot of claims going on without supporting proof.
