Tiny Tonka Rescue Van

One of my toys when I was a child was the orange Tonka van shown here. It seems to be a Tiny Tonka no. 999 Rescue Van released from 1975 to 1977. (See, for example, this or this.)

tonka4 I don’t remember it having stickers on the sides, but perhaps they were removed. It’s extremely strong. I remember playing very roughly with it and the only crack in the plastic windows is a 1-cm long crack at the bottom corner of the passenger’s side of the windshield. The only writing on it is the word “Tonka” at the bottom and on the tires.
