Flashback Hot Wheels Revvers for 1973

Revvers were a one-year-only release for the Hot Wheels’ 1973 lineup. Slightly larger than the normal Hot Wheels car, they were also somewhat self-propelled. Unlike the 1973 Sizzlers, which were battery-powered, Revvers were rubber-band-powered. They were designed to use two rubber bands that were connected front to rear underneath the vehicle and were wound by […]
