I purchased this toy at an estate sale. There was a tag with it that said "Cast Iron Greyhound Scenicruiser Bus, late 1930s to early 1940s". The website Worthpoint describes it as being from the 1930s and as being very rare.
The underside is stamped "Arcade" and "4400". It measures 9 inches long by 2.25 inches wide. The cast iron body is in good condition, meaning I don't see any cracks. The paint is pitted and there is some rust. It is missing one of the back tires. The Greyhound dog is present on each side in raised relief and the logo "Greyhound Lines" is also present although all will need to be repainted.
EXPLANATION OF PRIORITY MAIL SHIPPING CHARGES:
Google will not include items in their search pages unless a shipping charge is stated or unless calculated shipping is offered. Calculated shipping is very often quoted incorrectly so I choose to post a charge using the east coast as the destination. If you live in or near Arizona, your charges may be less and if so I will refund an appropriate portion of those charges. If you feel uncomfortable with that, just send me an email with your zipcode and I'll quote you an exact delivery charge.
That being said, buyer to pay no more than $9.95 for Insured USPS Priority Mail delivery charges, again, possibly less depending on your location. The package will arrive with Signature Required delivery, meaning someone will have to sign for the package when it's delivered. Since the insurance and the signature confirmation is for the protection of both of us, I split those cost with the buyer.
If Paypal is your means of providing payment, I only ship to the registered Paypal address.
SHIPPING COST INFO:
I do combine shipping on multiple items purchased as long as all items can safely fit into a single box. However, my web host is not set up to calculate multiple item shipping costs. At checkout, you will be charged full shipping price on each item purchased and I will refund the appropriate amount of overpayment. If you are uncomfortable with that, you can send me an email with your zip code and stating which items you'll be purchasing and I'll calculate the correct combined shipping charges and send you a custom invoice.
Also, every January the postal service increases shipping charges. This year, many price increases were a bit steep with some package categories adding as much as a dollar on to an already high shipping charge. I try to absorb some of the new charges but that's getting harder with each increase.
International shipping charges also took a tremendous leap. International shipping will now depend on the country. Buyer must contact seller for international shipping charges before making a purchase. Seller reserves the right to void any international transactions where contact has not been made prior to purchasing.
All items in my listings come from either estate or garage sales. I do not know if they came from homes where smoking or pets were present. All items are sold in the same condition as when I received them.
