These were made by Poliumex in Mexico after acquiring the original metal dies from the German Tippco / Tipp & Co buses back in the 1960's. They are good quality and look very cool. This particular piece is the " PICK-UP " truck/bus No. I would say this is close to near mint with only a few scratches on the front and some chrome loss on the front bumper.Included is the original box, but it does have a couple tears. The friction mechanism revs up, but the bus doesn't seem to travel very far - maybe about one foot, so the mechanism might need some cleaning. I noticed that the orange color looks a bit light in the pictures - it is a bit darker shade in person. I WILL BE LISTING SEVERAL LEMY FRICTION TOYS, SO BE SURE TO CHECK MY OTHER AUCTIONS.
