This is one of the original 16 Hot Wheels models released in 1968, known to collectors as the 'sweet sixteen'. It is finished in purple 'Spectraflame' paint. The interior is white with black steering wheel and the windows have a blue tint. The side exhausts and exposed engine are chrome plated and the rear lights are picked out in red. Wheels are the famous 'Redline' type with low friction bearings.
This one is fair-to-good with general paint chipping and loss of silver from the wheels. Nevertheless, the window glazing is undamaged and the model still rolls in a straight line! The Silhouette was made in both the USA and Hong Kong; this one is the latter.
