In 1967, Monogram issued a series of “dream cars” or “thingies” as they were quickly called by the purists. These were designed to attract teenagers wore interested in outrageous looks than performance. The Assassin is one of three such models, using a stamped aluminum chassis and a sidewinder Mabuchi FT36D motor. It was the last issued and is harder to find then the two others.
The models came individually packaged in a vacuum formed clear plastic case sealed over a printed cardboard base, the whole display inside a corrugated cardboard box.
The Assassin was available in metallic red fogged with gold and metallic green also fogged with gold.
