I bought this Javelin when it first came out, in KMart back in '73. I played with it, and as a consequence it lost its tow hook. However, it has a chromed hood scoop rather than plain black plastic.



I like this casting. Nobody else bothered to make one - Play Art had an earlier model year and Hot Wheels made the AMX. It is nice and chunky, and still well-modelled at the same time.

I bought mine early in 1974,when I first saw it -and I have never seen a chrome scoop issue in the metal, but I know they are about.My favourite issue is the first blue with opening doors from the twinpack -these colours really suit the casting :thumbsup:
