Garage Sale 1996 Command Tank

This Hot Wheels find doesn’t really fit in my collection. It’s obviously not a Chevy Nova or Impala and it’s not old enough to fit in the blackwall category either. I almost walked away from it, but when I saw a ’63 Corvette that I knew my son would like, I grabbed this one too. The casting first appeared in 1984 as Battle Tank, wearing more traditional military colors, but in 1985 the name was changed to Command Tank. About a half-dozen variations have been produced, with this Night Force model from 1996 being the last.
