This is the Leslie Henry #16 Fire Engine originally issued in the 1950s in red. It is 100mm long, 34mm wide and 30mm high.

It is a one piece casting with all detail such as grille, bumpers, lights, body lines and trim, etc. cast into the metal. "Fire Dept" is cast into the rear step. There is no glazing or base to the model. On the under-side the model carries the legend "No. 16, Fire Truck" cast on two lines under the rear body tray area. The mold number "4" is cast under the engine cover area. The country of origin and manufacturer's name have been blocked out, which is one of the few ways to tell the Leslie Henry model from the Londontoy model.

The wheels are made of solid rubber on steel axles that pass through the wheels and are pinch-clamped to the flat columns that protrude from the body of the model.
