Not many toy manufacturers thought that the Chevy Vega was worthy of a miniature reproduction, but Cox produced their iconic Vega funny car anyway.
With the fat rear tires, side exhaust pipes spitting imaginary flames, a mock super charger sticking through the windshield, and a bright yellow paint job, the Cox Vega Funny Car looked respectably cool.
The car had no steering. It was designed to run in a straight line, along a string stretched out across the road surface. When the car reached the end of the string, the engine was killed and a parachute deployed. The parachute is located in the black pop-off cover shown on the rear of the car.
