This Semi truck is yellow, and was made in Hong Kong. It has a Diecast frame with a Diecast body. The middle wheels on the tractor cab as well as the trailers wheels have rubber tread on them. I imagine that the reason Mattel installed rubber tread over the wheels, is to give the truck more traction as one would steer the steering wheel. This truck was released in 1982. The tractor is dated 1981 on the frame. This is part of the Blackwalls era of Hot Wheels.
What’s pictured here is on a red French card. It was also made on a blue card for the USA.
