That is a pretty cool miniature Bill. I like that. :D

International Harvester Sales This one appears to be a First Gear.

Bill, it is definitively a First Gear product:

Farmall

This truck is a 1949 International Harvester Metro Van with the Farmall IH McCormick tractor colors and graphics. The van measures 3 and a quarter inches wide by 3 and three-quarter inches high by 8 and a quarter inches long at 1/25th scale size. It has opening double doors in the rear and both the front side doors slide open.

Thanks Rudi, The seller called me back a while ago and said it was made by First Gear and stamped 2007. I had never heard of them so I Googled it. I checked the same page you did and found it sells for about the same as he wants for his. I'm passing on it

Yeah, some of them try to sell em for new price even though used. I like the Metro and it would be nice to have but not at that price, I would rather work on completing my Spec Casts Cubs.
