In the 1970s, this Brazilian based maker issued a series of diecast called "Fuchs". The window box packaging also has a fox image and the label of "Hot Weels" (sic). Other lettering said "Speed Box". The castings themselves were of poor quality and the Hot Wheels copied Speed Turbo suffered from metal fatigue. Other castings issued were the Lincoln Mark IV, Lola GT, Chevelle SS, Corvette Special and (3) buggy models. The Chapparal, Monza and Monaco editions were copies of Lone Stars own buggy with interchangeable roof pieces.
