Running the North American Van Lines Inc livery, the truck isclean as new and inexcellent originalcondition with all parts intact including gorgeous factory box. There isa strong wind up motor as well.This truck has been in my collection for over 25 years. It has never been seen on before and never passed around the toy shows. I bought it from the original owner and always had it carefully displayed in a dust free cabinet.The tru tone cream, red and black finish looks absolutely stunning. There are no dents or dings and only a couple minor chips are all that mar the otherwise pristine finish. Bare metal trim shines brightly but does show some typical age tarnish. These trucks were never made with any plastic windshields.Rear trailer door opens and closes easily as it should. Glossybases have no wear at all. Drive tires are rubber while front tires on truck and trailer tires are wood. All are flawless with no cracks or flat spots. Original box is still fairly crisp and very clean. All flaps are intact and there are no stains or offending odors. No repairs have ever been made. Here is your chance to own thiswonderful old survivor tinplate toy truckwith a low, lowstarting offer and ........as always.

Delivery confirmation is included on every domestic shipment to insure the package arrives at it's destination. For international shipments priority airmail or first class mail is available. Shipping charges are fixed as is shipping method.A slight handling charge is built in to cover shipping room costs and help. I do not skimp on packing. I am a collector as well as a dealer, and many times have been chagrined to open a box and find a rare vintage toy broken en route. Not due to postal misuse, but bypoor and insensitivewrapping. You will not receive toys packed like this from me. All my items are thoughtfullyand carefully packed as though I would be mailing them to myself. Prices are set by size and weight.USPS Priority Mail dimensional weight rates will now apply for certain large packages shipped to select zones within the U.S. Priority Mail can be very expensive with an oversize package, as many of my toys require, thereforefor those larger items I use Parcel Post which is just as safe and almost as fast. If you have a concern over cost, or prefer a different method of shipping, please let me know and I will be glad to work with you. Please email any concerns before leaving response, and I will do my best to accommodate you.
Items won are mailed the day after payment is made unless of postal holiday or some unforeseen circumstance prevents shipment.
