Hot Wheels Mercedes-Benz C111 (6978)

I found this older Hot Wheels at a vintage toy store in Kokomo, Indiana. My collection of Hot Wheels doesn't really include any big ticket items, with most of my collection being the $1 mainlines. I snagged this one for $5, and it definitely shows its wear. I'm no expert at distinguishing between the variations, but I'm confident that whatever version this is,this one is 40 years old and was made in the mid-seventies.

This is model on a Mercedes-Benz concept car used as a test bed in the sixties and seventies. The color is pure seventies - I think we had a fridge in the same color. Wish my version was in better shape, but happy with this at the price I paid.
