An another Deora show car within the more modern appearance

As discussed in the previous article about the existence of a unique show car called Deora which was launched in 1967. This car is said to be built of the 1960 Dodge A100 as its base. And then the show car was made in the Hot Wheels miniature car series by Mattel Inc., an American famous toy manufacturer.

And entering the second millennial, it seems that the Deora show car model is still able to attract the world's automotive enthusiasts, especially in the United States to rebuild it into a 1:1 scaled real car model, but now within the more modern appearance.

This car was later given the name Deora II and was designed by Nathan Proch. As mentioned above, the Deora II car model was inspired by the Deora show car that was previously built in the 1960s, also includes similar modernized design elements such as surfboards, spoilers on engines and the windshield is now made oval-shaped.

This design, like old-Deora, is based on actual production vehicles. Designer Nathan Proch uses design cues taken from the back of the 1996 Ford Taurus station wagon. And the Deora II has a swoopy curve that contrasts with Deora's original sharp angular lines. While its miniature model debuts as the First Edition #5 on Mainline Hot Wheels 2000.

The Deora II was built into a 1:1 scale real car model starting in 2003, as part of the 35th Anniversary of Hot Wheels. Mattel' Hot Wheels teamed up with Chip Foose, Five Axis, Mother's Wax, and PPG Industries to do the original design of these amazing Hot Wheels. The unique car model powered by a supercharged Northstar V8 engine. It was also featured in the Hot Wheels Highway 35-World Race movie.

Then after it was finished, Deora II was appointed to the Hot Wheels Hall of Fame in 2003 at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, California. At that time Jay Leno fired up the Proch-designed, Foose-built Deora II and drove it into the star-studded gala event. A little-known fact is that the car was actually seen before the Hot Wheels Hall of Fame ceremony when it debuted a week earlier at the SEMA show.
Besides that, the car has also been modified from its launch with KMC Wheels replaced by Foose One-off which matched with the 1/18 scale model and Nathan Proch's original design. And the Deora II car model also appeared in the Hot Wheels Velocity X game as a boss car which can then be opened and played. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | FIVE AXIS | SIA MAGAZIN | DIECAST X MAGAZINE]
