Written by

GreenLight Collectibles has been expanding in recent years, locking-down new licenses as they continually roll out new, authentic diecast vehicle replicas. Now they've inked a deal with Turtle Wax to develop a new line of collectibles ahead of the brand’s 75th anniversary celebration.

“Turtle Wax is part of the fabric of the automotive industry,” said Cale Hotton, Director of Licensing and Product Development. “GreenLight is proud to honor this iconic brand by capturing their history in this new line of authentic die-cast vehicle replicas.

GreenLight will debut the Turtle Wax products in its seventh series of the well-known “Running on Empty” product line with item no. 41070-B 1:64 Running on Empty Series 7 - 1962 Dodge D-100 - Turtle Wax.
