  1. Does the rear view mirror on the inside of the cab mean that it was made in Japan? I have a Tiny Wrecker that has the rear view mirror in the cab.. It is blue with tandem axles. I’ve never seen another like it.

    • Matt: I would guess so. I have one like that you describe with Tonka Japan stickers on it. I have the box and it was clearly made in Japan to be sold in Japan. I’ve seen Tonka Rico/Mini Sanson wreckers (made it Spain) with the same twin rear axles, but they don’t have the rear view mirror. I’m not sure if this mirror is diagnostic of the Japanese Tiny Tonkas, but so far all those I’ve seen have it (including one of these snorkel pumpers that I have).
