1969 Hot Wheels Super-Charger Rally ‘N Freeway Set

The all purpose Super-Charger set for 1969 is the Rally & Freeway Set.  It’s like the Double Action Set but also includes a 12 car Rally Case that acts like a parking structure for the track to go under.

You get 24 feet of orange track (some of it in 12 inch, 6 inch and 3 inch pieces), 12 joiners, 2 half curves, 4 full curves, 2 automatic lap counters, 4 white trestles, 1 twelve car rally case, 2 rally case supports, and 2 Super-Chargers. The instructions come with 5 track layouts: 4 freeways and 1 race way.

I am going to build the Tricky Triple-Twist Layout on page 8 for this post and video.  And since I don’t have the original white rally case supports I will substitute two of my own.  I am going to skip the lap counter as well because I will be running up to 4 cars at one time.

Here’s the Tricky Triple-Twist Freeway ready to go.   And here are the 4 cars I am going to use on this set.

L to R: 1973 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am, Corvette Grand Sport, 2010 Ford Mustang GT, 1969 COPO Corvette

Here’s a tour through the course.  Out of the lower Super-Charger and heading for the 12 car Rally Case parking garage. Through the parking garage underpass. Heading back to the upper Super-Charger. Out to the second full curve loop. Sweeping past the Super-Chargers. Round the half curve. Through the third full curve loop. And back to the lower Super-Charger. There you have it.  The 1969 Hot Wheels Super-Charger Rally & Freeway Set.

It’s still fast!  Still fun!
