This is a one piece casting and with no opening parts and all features cast into the body. There is no glazing as the windows are also filled in with the body material (vinyl).

There is no base plate as such — the body casting is open to the under side and strengthening bars are in place to hold the soft body's shape. It is marked with "Miniflex under the front bumper, "Gasoline Truck" on the first strengthening bar, "Hong Kong" on th e second strengthening bar, and "16" under the bonnet area.

All wheels are one piece, soft vinyl in black, attached to a rounded axle that passes through struts molded on the underside of the body and the wheels.

It is not known when this model was issued, but it is thought to have been during the 1970s.
