Description

This U.S. Mail truck was introduced as the Letter Getter in the Flying Colors basic line of 1977. At first it was only available in the Truckin' Machines 6-Pack with red sidewalls or redlines and a metal base. Later in 1977 it was released in a single blister pack but only had basic wheels or blackwalls with a metal base. In 1978 the base was changed to black plastic. This casting's name was changed to Combat Medic in 1986.
