7/16/2019 — About a month ago, Walmarts around the United States started getting in “flat” 72 ct. cases of the ’79 Ford F-150 “Sam Walton” Truck. Collectors that were first-to-find grabbed these by the case as its not often you find 94¢ #Real Riders these days unless we are talking about Super Treasure Hunts — which most would not leave behind either. This isn’t the first time that Walmart has sold the Sam Walton truck as it was a 100% Hot Wheels “black box” car in 1999, and more recently came in the HW Jukebox series — very similar to this one — in 2013. Alas, this ’79 Ford F-150 is back at Walmart. If you haven’t been so fortunate to score one of these yet, try sparkshop.com — the Walmart Museum’s online shop — as they have them for $1.89 (+ shipping). It may not be the same as finding them for 94¢ in-store, but its still a reasonable price to pay for one. I splurged for one and it came today… well wrapped, might I add. Thanks, sparkshop.com! It definitely brought “a little spark to [my] day”.
UPDATED 7/18/2019 — It appears Spark Shop has pulled the listing after being inundated with hundreds (if not thousands) of orders. Since this article went live two days ago, stock had dropped over 6,000 units per the site’s inventory number.
Awesome Sam Walton 1979 Ford F-150 pickup truck you got congrats. 👍I got one from one of my friends for my birthday. 👍
the Walmart stores in my area are terrible in ordering Hot Wheels, Just ordered me one. Chances are I may not find one in store.
Thank you for posting this. Have seen many on eBay and Facebook go for absurd amounts.
I did not know about this truck. I just ordered two.
Now I understand why can’t find it at sparkshop.com 😦
If I had seen one of these I would have grabbed one, I snagged a couple this morning however!
I ordered 5. Will give 1 @ to a few relatives. Wanted this Truck when it 1st came out. Could not find it.Glad I waited awhile to buy 5. What I paid for 5 is less than what 1 is costing or was costing when they were 1st offered on the auction sites. Thanks for the Article & Headsup BRAD.
Also,yesterday their were over 7,000 offered. Today their are less than 4,500. So if you DILLY DALLY around you will miss out.
Thanks for the info
Is the link broken or are they sold out now?
It appears they (sparkshop) took the item down. My guess is that they were inundated with orders.
Thanks, glad I grabbed a few before that!
I was told by customer service that the truck is not going to be sold on line anymore. They are only going to be available at their Bentonville, Arkansas office for $2.99. They didn’t like the truck being bought and resold. Isn’t that what Walmart does everyday at their stores? Sam Walton is probably rolling in his grave……..again.
I ordered four, one for me and three for family and friends who colllect. Order went through, charged my card. Then today I get an email from my credit card company stating Wal-mart issued me a credit back to my card. They cancelled my order!
I ordered my10 as soon as you posted about them. I can’t find in stores and they are asking way to much online. They arrived today, my nephews will love them.
That’s great news to hear STYCKO. I ordered 5 for me and family members and they are on the way. Now I feel somewhat better that you got yours. I ordered mines as soon as I saw the article here.Mines will be in JAGVILLE,FLA. this Tuesday. Thanks for the info. enjoy your trucks. 👌🏾👌🏾👌🏾👌🏾👌🏾👌🏾👌🏾👌🏾
CORRECTION: order is GOOD, I was refunded from something I actually bought and returned to the store last Sunday.
i didnt get a chance to order one. does anybody have an extra?
Glad I placed an order on July 11th, way ahead rest of the pack. But a few of the cards didn’t survive transit, so I have 1 or 2 opener’s.
That sucks. Hopefully someone has one on the card.
They are sold out. I watched it start at over 11,000 units. I purchased 2 different times. The last time they had 3,000 or so left. The next morning nothing. All gone. I know people who purchased 50+ of them.
All I want is one
Does anyone have one?
back in stock now but $5 each
