NPY - Yellow Chrome

COLOR NAME: Yellow Chrome
LURE(S) PICTURED: Chugger Spook (9542NPY), Tiny Torpedo (364NPY), Super Sonic (9387NPY), Chugger Spook (9540NPY), Zara Spook (X9250NPY)

All models: Chrome or silver body with yellow scale pattern on back and sides. This color along with 5 other 'chrome' colors were introduced in Heddon's 1971 catalog and were produced thru 1975. The colors included VGS (Gold/Brown Chrome), NPR (Red Chrome), NFD (Green Shad Chrome), NBL (Black Chrome) and VRB (Rainbow Chrome). In addition, Heddon assigned a different series number to every lure produced in the Chrome color, i.e., '9540' was the standard series number for the Chugger but in a Chrome color, it was 9542. That series number continued to 1974 and then Heddon reverted back to the standard series number for the lure(s). These exist in both gold eye and white eye versions as the pictures show.
