Hot Wheels Purple Passion

The Purple Passion is loosely based on the 1951 Mercury, from which it differs in having no B-pillar and a steeper-tapering rear roofline. Designed by Larry Wood, it first appeared in 1990 and was the first casting not to be bound by the rules that (a) all castings had to perform well on track and (b) all wheels must be fully visible. As such, it is believed to be the first model to be aimed more at the adult collector than children. It first appeared in the Mainline in 1990 as car #087 - and the first issue was actually purple (although it has since been produced in a number of colors). Later issues in collector series have opening hoods. It has also spawned a woodie version and a convertible version.
