    This little tanker came from the same place as the Mobil Gas, and is a perfect version of a very rare tank, only it did not come with a cab !
    Now the hunt is on for a suitable donor cab.
    Now I guess I'm collecting Shell trucks also!!!
    Any help with the manufacturer would be great.
    Cheers!!

      It was made by Momoya Stoten of Japan. This trailer came in a set with the mobile truck you posted, two trailers and one cab. Not having the box I would do the same thing and find a cab.

      That's great info Tom, thanks so much!!
      Did the truck have changeable logo's on the door, as this one is marked Mobil,or were they all like that?
    3. AzTom AzTom, 6 years ago
      It did not, at least I have not seen one that did. They didn't always get the details correct,lol
      On a lot of the toys from Japan the images on the box did not always match the car inside.

      Thanks Tom, as always , you are most helpful!
      These are so fragile I'm surprised any are left, but I suppose the great amount of detail and design made a lot of people put these cheap little toys on display, and I'm sure they pumped them out by the millions also!!
      Cheers!
