It is a one piece casting with all detail such as bumpers, lights, body lines and trim, number plates, etc. cast into the metal. There is no glazing or base to the model. On the under-side the model carries the legend "Tootsietoy Made in United States of America 234" cast on 5 lines under the tank area.
