Dodge Deora

The Dodge Deora was an example of a major automobile manufacturer trying to grab a little piece of the hot rod spotlight. It was based on the design of the A100 pickup truck, and added such features as a flip-up windshield and a door that opens in the front of the vehicle.

"It caused quite a stir at its first unveiling at the 1967 Detroit Autorama," Brauer said. "Mattel's Hot Wheels division liked it enough to make the Deora one of the first 16 original Hot Wheels toy cars."
