|The pictures show views of this Rare Early 1950s Rexall Drug Advertising Friction Tin Toy Tandem Truck Box. Shown is the top, sides and bottom of the box. The inside has no kind of inserts or anything. This is an empty advertising box that the toy truck came in. The toy truck itself is not included here. The tandem friction truck occasionally becomes available, but rarely do you ever see this original box being offered. If you have the truck, this box will add much value to it.|
The top of the box pictures the tandem trailer truck in front of a downtown Rexall drugstore with a hanging Rexall sign, signs on the building and in the store front windows, and on the truck itself. On two sides the truck is pictured and on the other two sides a Rexall drugstore is shown. The bottom and inside are blank. It is believed to be an early 1950s GMC truck and made by SSS Shioji Toys. The box is marked as follows:
THE BEST KNOWN NAME IN DRUGS
MADE IN JAPAN
The closed empty box measures 10-3/4'' x 8-1/2'' x 4-1/4''. It appears to be in good condition with over all wear as shown in the pictures. There are a few punctures in the cloud area that have a piece of masking tape on the inside.
