1977 and 1978 American Victory

American Victory is a Larry Wood designed Hot Wheel that made its debut in 1975. I picked up both of mine on eBay from separate sellers. This light blue 1977 version wears the same paint and tampo as the original – without the redlines, of course.

This magenta variation in my collection came out in 1978.

Several other color variations were created in 1983 and 1984, including models made in France and Mexico.
