    Here is a link to the similar Marx Lumar Van Lines truck that was produced in the 1940's - http://atlantaantiquegallery.com/i-6808072-marx-lumar-van-lines-1940s.html .. and here is another link - http://www.buymarxtoys.com/2011/03/marx-lumar-van-lines-truck-metal-1940s-toy-must-look/

    Yours has plastic wheels and the newer cab style that was made from the mid-1950's into the '60s.

    Your Van was made by Louis Marx & Co., probably dating to the 1950's. I love the lithography on this toy.

    Marx often made use of the same dies to make different toys by changing the litho or combining with other stamped pieces.

    Here is an example of your toy:

    Here is one that is similar to yours, but with a red roof:

    Here is one just like yours, but with the addition of a drop down loading gate:

    Finally, here is an example with a different cab and tin litho wheels:

    Nice save!
