This appears to be a Rare A. Im sure the hard collectors might know but I can say with certainty it is pretty rare.
There are no makers marks as many of the old ones I understand have the name on the box. The truck has moderate signs of wear throughout. Scratches, scrapes and paint loss as pictured.
Inside appears to be very clean. Tin litho rear door opens and closes. Small nub of tin on bottom corner seems to hold door closed. Driver is in great condition.A crank in the front is used to wind up the truck. The wind up feature is not very strong but does work and propels the truck forward.
Feel free to ask any questions. I will also provide any further pictures if requested.
