    I haven't seen one like this either. I'm rarely stumped on toy vehicles, especially fire trucks.. I assume it isn't marked anywhere, but do you have a picture of the bottom? Based on the style of wheels and the way it appears to have been made, I would date it late '50s or '60s.

    Thanks Ay! I'll post a few more pics,,,, no name or markings anywhere, had me stumped also, but I had to have it! It looks like it was never played with.

    I have many B/O Fire Engines - however, I too, am stumped. Guessing it may be a Bandai, but not sure. It sure is nice, though. I'm going to put up some pictures of a few of my B/O Fire Engines too.

    Thanks to all that Liked/Loved this!

    pickr - can you snap a picture of the bottom - I want to figure this out. Also, look inside the battery compartment for any printing whatsoever. There has to be SOME printing or trademark on this toy somewhere!

    James, there is onlt a Pat #C49405. Any manufacture mark could have been on the missing bat. cover. The more I look at this the more I like it! Even the lights on the top are wired to light-up! The decals are amazing, & it has remarkable detail. I'd love to find out more about it! Thanks for your help. Any luck with the mirrors/horn kit for the Li'l Beaver truck? I'd love to replace those! Thanks,bernie

    It seems that your Hook and Ladder was made by Bandai of Japan, probably dating to the 1960's.

    Here is a link to an old auction listing (2009) from the UK (of all places):


    Love the detail on this toy and the litho in the interior.

    Tonight I'm going to go downstairs and choose a TOUGH toy to identify and list it to see if anyone can find reference to it. Busy right now, but I'll list one as a contest this evening... James
