The Demon (1970)
The Demon was produced in 1970-71 and was based on
the 1957 Li'l Coffin show car.
All Demons were produced in Hong Kong and had a black painted roof.
Most of these cars were
produced with black or white interiors. The white interior is less
common and therefore
value of the car. Demons with tan and grey interiors also
have been reported.
packaged with either a metal or a plastic collector button.
A similar casting named the Prowler was produced in 1973. All
1973 Prowlers had enamel paint,
not spectraflame like the Demon, and lacked the black roof. Apparently,
leftover bases from
casting were used to produce a large number of Prowlers. In fact,
Prowlers with Demon bases are
common than a Prowler with a Prowler base!
