HOT WHEELS 1/50 1966 TV SERIES BATMOBILE VEHICLE

The Bat Mobile designed for the 1966 Batman TV Series was based on the Ford Motor Company's Lincoln Futura concept car. When approached to create a coar for the TV show, custom car builder George Barris decided the Ford Futura was the perfect fit. With existing bat-like features such as long fins and a bubble canopy, other "bat-gadgets" were added such as the nose-mounted chain slicer, on-board telephone and police beacon. This year, our Hot Wheels version has been modified with a trailer hitch to tow the 1966 Bat Boat. See more
