The Big Red Car has had lots of changes over the years.
Cardboard and Plywood (1995-1996)
The very first incarnation of the Big Red Car, first appearing in the video Big Red Car, was made primarily of cardboard. There are three funnels at the back that give the appearance of a permanently retracted roof.
Dune Buggy (1997-2002; present)
The first motorized version of the Big Red Car was constructed for The Wiggles Movie in 1997 by dune buggy technician Godfrey Reade. Being the first of its kind, it bears features that carried over into later Big Red Car iterations, such as colored seats and hubcaps with a Wiggle-colored Battenberg pattern. Conversely, a feature of this car that did not carry over into later iterations is the large yellow front bumper. Decals of The Wiggles Logo appeared on each side of the car, but not on the front bonnet (though it was later added for Wiggly Safari). The car was on display at The Australia Zoo from 2002 to 2004, and can currently be found at the Wiggles World area of Dreamworld, parked outside of Wigglehouse.

Second Motorized Version (1997-2008)
This version of the Big Red Car made its debut on The Wiggles Big Show tour. It is shorter in length than the first motorized car and omits the yellow front bumper that that version had. This car was the first to have The Wiggles Logo emblazoned on the front bonnet (albeit with a blue dot over the lowercase i instead of a green one), as well as text reading THE BIG RED CAR underneath it, though the "THE" was omitted sometime before Toot Toot! started filming. The windshield is a different material from the rest of the car, appearing to be foam covered in lycra.

The body of the car is a deeper shade of red, and the BIG RED CAR text on the front is now in a thinner typeface, ostensibly a variant of the Arial font. The logos on the sides and front are also visibly different, being brighter in color and also somewhat smaller in size.
The headlights were replaced with thinner ones, and the text reading BIG RED CAR is now in the Daddy O'Hip typeface. Sometime around mid-2007, the BIG RED CAR text was removed entirely and the logos on the side and front were replaced with more standard variants. This version of the car was used in every USA concert starting in 2005, until being retired after the Pop Go The Wiggles tour.

Third (2004-2011; present)Rosemont's & Co. and making its debut in 2004 on the Santa's Rockin Concert, this Big Red Car is visibly longer and rounder than any of the previous incarnations, this iteration features rounder hubcaps, a yellow windshield, and a back fender, complete with a sculpted-on license plate with WIGGLES printed on it. In 2011, this car became a photography prop for events, with the engine removed and the wheels being replaced by wooden copies.

Big Red Electric Utility Vehicle
In a circumstance where the real vehicle was unavailable for a performance of the Wiggle Pop! Big Show, this one-off variation saw the Big Red Car take on the form of a Taylor-Dunn electric utility vehicle covered in red duct-tape and cardboard, with The Wiggles logo being printed on A4 paper and taped on the sides and front.
