The Troop Convoy is a Hot Wheels Original Model designed by Larry Wood. The model is based on the real military vehicle built by AM General: the M809. The M809 series truck (G908), also know as the "deuce and-a-half" for its cargo weight capacity (2.5-ton), was a family of 5-ton 6x6 tactical trucks built for the United States Armed Forces. The cargo version of the M809 series is called the M813. It had a 14 ft (4.3 m) long low sided box with a bottom hinged tailgate. Side racks, troop seats, and overhead bows with a tarpaulin were standard. A front mounted winch was optional.
This model was first released in 1984 for the Action Command series. It was also released in the regular 1984 mainline as Troop Carrier. The models feature a removable plastic bed cover.
The Troop Convoy has come out in the following 1/64 scale versions:
