1968 Hot Wheels Custom Cougar
Painted Tooth with four Deep Dish wheels
The early editions of the Custom Cougar included a painted "tooth" which hangs down over the front grille. Later editions did not include this feature as it was likely not cost efficient for Hot Wheels to manufacture. Early models also included tires that are called Deep Dish or with raised side walls and rims that appear sunken from the rest of the tire.
