Hand made Brass Car
- WHY ?: Brass cars were made for use in Track & Accessory testing, Catalog Shots and Comercials which needed to be done well in advance of any prototypes or 1st shots being available.
- WHY BRASS ?: Brass models looked almost exactly like a regular Hot Wheel car, weighed and rolled the same.
- WHEN ?: Made after the 4x pattern but before any Tooling/Molds were made for the 1:1 cars.
- HOW ?: Usually the Body, Chassis and sometimes an Engine were pantographed down from the 4x Pattern or Expoy shells. Then hollowed out to fit the interors, windows and other working mechanisims.
- HOW LONG ?: Brass cars took over 200 man hours to make
- WHAT WERE THE OTHER PARTS MADE OUT OF ?: K-resin was for windows and usually Polypropylene for the interior.
