This year, Mattel brought us a new spin on Hot Wheels Treasure Hunts so collectors actually have to “hunt” for the cars instead of just looking for the green stripe on the side that we’ve all become so accustomed to. These “Hidden” Treasure Hunts are variations on some of the regular series issues. The Hidden Treasure Hunts replace the old “Super” Treasure Hunts from recent years. These are harder to find than this year’s Treasure Hunt Series. The variations feature Spectraflame paint, upgraded wheels, Treasure Hunt logos, and different packaging.
The 2012-110 ’67 Chevelle SS 396 Hidden Treasure Hunt from the Muscle Mania – GM ’12 Series is currently fetching around $20. The regular issue in red is valued at $2.00 and the newer green recolor is currently valued at $3.00.
