One of the more underrated castings in the Hot Wheels arsenal (of thousands of castings), is the #’67 Ford Bronco. The #First Edition of it — as its only release to this day — came as part of the #Hot Wheels Entertainment Line in 2014. Representing the #Bronco that was driven in the 2001 movie, Zoolander (clip at the bottom), this topless Bronco is just too great of a casting to only have been released once. Its square-shaped body has some great lines and the roll cage & front grill guard fit real nice. Perhaps my favorite casting detail is the “FORD” that is embossed on the tailgate as it gives this casting a more authentic, premium look oppose to “FORD” just being tampo’ed on the back.
Since this is indeed a #TV & Movie Car from what is now known as the #Replica Entertainment line, the replica license plate is a must. It is sans the red Statue of Liberty, but the white New York license plate that reads “RFK 575” does appear on the back tailgate and on the front bumper.
Time will only tell if we see this #’67 Ford Bronco casting again. In my own (humble) opinion, it far exceeds the lifted, hardtop ’67 Ford Bronco casting that was first released as part of the 2011 Hot Wheels Garage and has pretty much been relegated to the #Pop Culture line ever since. With not a huge demand for this Zoolander release, you can score one of these for pretty close to the retail price of $5 (plus shipping) on the secondary market. Hopefully we will see this ’67 Ford Bronco casting again, but if we don’t, make sure you pick one of these up and open it up — you may not know it, but you won’t be disappointed!
