Few cars made by Hot Wheels exemplify the far out '60's as does the Beatnik Bandit. Modeled after Ed Roth's 1961 Beatnik Bandit (4th photo), this beauty was one of 16 initial offerings upon the introduction of Hot Wheels back in 1968.

This particular version is the Spectra Flame Pink variation. Since I received it for Christmas back in 1968, the color didn't really matter much to me. But once I went public with it, the teasing never stopped for owning a Pink car when everyone else's were the Spectra Flame blue, red or purple variations.

Granted, the Gold, Red, Orange, and Purple variations were more popular - and still are - I was proud of my one-off colored car. While not necessarily rare, The Spectra Flame Pink color is harder to find, particularly in good shape.

What has come to be known as the "Sweet 16", this is one of 16 models first introduced in 1968.
