First, I must thank Fintail our purveyor of vintage Tomica pictures and reviews, for introducing some of us to the incredible world of old Tomicas. This led me to grabbing them as soon as I come across them. One good find is this kei van 
truck.

The two-piece wheels mean that indeed, this casting is from the early years of Tomica. The condition is good considering its age, as I picked this up from the Japanese Surplus shop, in a pile of loose (and badly abused) diecasts.

As with old Tomicas, the small details are great. Door handles, trim and indicator lights are present. The spare tire (shown below) even have treads.
