This casting was first released as Mantis for 1970 and it has an opening canopy. For the 1973 release the name was changed to Double Vision. The casting was later renamed Speed Seeker for three releases from 1984 through 1987. After a nine year absence it was again released a few more times with a new name of Speed Machine. The major difference for the latest release is that the canopy doesn't open.


The Speed Machine has come out in the following versions:
