Japan - Unknown Maker - Small USAF Bus

Back on 12 Sept Toys & Stuff featured a rather large USAF tin-litho bus measuring in at 11" (27.9cm) long. Today we feature its little brother. It's a lighter blue than the other one and has no discernible makers marks but looks a lot like the small Linemar bus found in Marx Airport/Jetport playsets. I'm speculating that this was made in the early-to-mid 1960s. It measures 7" (17.8cm) L x 1 5/8" (4.1cm) W x 1 5/8" (4.1cm) H. Enjoy!

It appears the original price was $.39 - thirty-nine cents! If the price is marked directly on the toy like this, it was most probably sold as a bin toy without any packaging.

The large bus featured on 12 Sept and today's bus.
