"Go Greyhound and leave the driving to us". That's just one of the logos that appear on this vintage tin Greyhound bus.
I purchased it at an estate sale. There was a tag with it that said "Tin Litho Greyhound Scenicruiser Bus, 1960s".
Other markings on the bus are "Go Greyhound", "Super Scenicruiser", "Express". It also has the number 4321 in several places and the back has "Made In Japan".
It measures 7 inches long and is about 2 inches side to side and 2 inches tall. All wheels are present and secure. They turn with ease.
I am not an expert on vintage toys and I don't know the first thing about how to grade one, but this bus is in wonderful condition. I would personally rate it an 8 or 9 out of 10. The only blemish I see is on the driver's side, back by the rear bumper there is an extremely slight crease that measures about 1/4 inch. I hesitate to even mention it because I wouldn't have seen it if a friend hadn't of pointed it out.
Delivery will be via USPS First Class Mail Parcel. Mailing is from California. Postal insurance will be utilized. Since the insurance is for the protection of both of us, I split the cost with the buyer. Buyer to pay delivery charges of $5.95.
SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT POSSIBLE PARTIAL REFUND OF SHIPPING CHARGES
Every January the postal service increases shipping charges. Previously, shipping charges were based solely on weight and a package cost the same amount regardless of where it was being shipped to in the United States. This year they went a bit overboard. Now, with this year's increase, the postal service has divided the United States in to 8 zones and all packages are charged by weight, size, and destination zone. Now it is not possible to state a shipping cost and have it be valid regardless if the package is traveling 2 miles or all the way to the east coast. This latest increase has added an additional .46 cents to up to $1.43 on packages. I try to absorb some of the new charges but that's getting harder with each increase.
To complicate things even further, Google will not show items for sale unless they have a designated cost, or unless the seller uses calculated shipping. My web host is not equipped to figure calculated shipping, so I have to quote a shipping charge using the east coast as the final destination and then refund over payments. When I return the overage, I usually do so by including cash inside the package when it's shipped. My feedback page will show verification that I do return overpayments.
COMBINED SHIPPING INFORMATION
I do combine shipping on multiple items purchased as long as all items can fit safely 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.
International shipping charges also took a tremendous leap and on top of that, this year Paypal started charging a currency conversion fee of 4.4%. International shipping now depends on the destination 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.
