The 1st generation Civic was released by Tomica in 1974 in a couple of 3 door hatchback variations – GL and rally. Since then it’s appeared in many colors, tampo designs and even wheel designs. The earlier issues were made in Japan and the later ones mostly from China.
The early variations had the vintage 1E wheels. This dark gold variation came in both a US market “Pocket Cars” carded blister and elsewhere in Asia in the traditional black and yellow Tomica JDM model box.
This US issue “rally” Civic was not available outside the US and only came in the Pocket Cars carded blister.
