04/19/09 125 W, 2 I - + 12 - 12 Very Mini Pumper (Updated)


From the Far East comes this Tomica Limited Vintage model of a LV-68 Subaru Sambar Pumper, circa 1970 or abouts. The 1/64 scale, die-cast replica measures 47mm long, 24mm wide, and 29mm high, which means the real thing sizes around 9.9 feet long, 5 feet wide, and 6 feet high. That's a very mini pumper! The equipment is pretty simple. One playpipe, e.g. straight-bore nozzle, three sections of hose, one section of rubber suction hose, and one small-looking pump. Plus what might be a bench for seating in the back. It's nice addition to the collection in Mike's man cave. Read about the Subaru Sambar. Updated on Sunday, photographed beside a 1:64 scale replica of a Pierce Quantum pumper by Code 3 Collectibles. Click to enlarge:
