    Just another oddball without a clear maker. I'm sure if I dug though other period tin toys and looked for the same driver, I might be able to get an answer. Very simple mechanism, feels like no gear exchange present, but it still gets the job done.

    I just thought it was a charming little vehicle, but them I am partial to the earlier designs of armored fighting vehicles! If you look close you can see the embossed sponson guns on the sides and rear. In the one other example of this model I've seen, it had graphics to coincide with those features, I'd love to find one of those.
