Here's a late-seventies advert, ironically published in a Marvel comic (Battlestar Galactica!) for Corgi's range of toy cars based on DC heroes and villains.

These were sold in the UK as well.  What's not clear from the artwork is that each open-topped vehicle included a glued-in crude plastic representation of the featured character.  Wonder Woman did not look good.  The Supermobile (the blue thing with the fists) even turned-up, by way of product placement, in Superman's own comic book.
