I showed this picture on the @orangetrackdiecast Instagram the other day and I was surprised at the attention it garnered. That alone tells me that A) You guys love the Hot Wheels #’55 Chevy Bel Air Gasser as much as I do, and B) I should really show more #Collection Updates — so I’ve started a new category for just that here on OTD.
For me, the #’55 Chevy Bel Air Gasser is a cool car no doubt. I was lucky to have started collecting this casting when it came out in 2013 … filling in releases I missed here and there. Its pretty cool to see this casting become as popular as it is now, as that only means we get to see lots of cool, multi-line releases of it. This is by no means ALL of them as I am still missing at least two — but those are going to cost an arm and a leg so this is as far as the collection goes for now…
You may have also noticed a new setup at OTD headquarters. More news on this to come… Cheers!

im missing 7 of em!!
Oh, I believe it. This is a casting collection that could require some deep pockets to obtain all of its releases if you didn’t get them from their original sources.
@brad What Two? Unless you’re counting obscure variations, I can only think of the Candy Gasser roof color variant…
Hey Dave, both are employee releases. ZAMAC Design Team release and White MEA 2018 release… one of which should be here soon. 😉
You know Brad, it’s really time for a proper “Race Team” release of this one… we need to get a petition started… too late for 2019, but there’s always the future!
Hehe, no doubt Steve! Maybe Team Transport????
That would awesome! A premium release of BOTH the hauler and the gasser!!! (See whose arm you can twist to make this happen)
Hi Brad, I’m curious also, Which 2 are you missing?
You know what they said about curiosity right? Well, that is a topic for another time, but look above. I answered Dave’s original question.
