Early 1960's Marusan Ford? Ambulance. 8 1/2 inches long. Opening single rear door. Found this sitting on the top of a shelf of a small antique market. It was being used as a support to hold up a vintage glass triangular shaped exit sign. I could just see a bit of the back and was hoping it might be a Wyandotte ambulance. Moved the offending exit sign and various paper and other debris, possibly mouse doo, lol, as it was just within reach. Had some yellowish patina to it, but looked solid and Japanese. Gave half the asking price on the old sticker and brought it home. About 1/2 hours work, it cleaned up amazing. Back door was a bit stuck at first, but rotating handle freed up and operates excellent. Sometimes little treasures are hidden in these antique markets. This deserved saving rather than being something to use as a support. All round good day picking the little Coast Defence Gun, and this vintage tin Ambulance.
