1954 Tonka G. Fox & Company Private Label Metro Van

Featured below is the rare 1954 G. Fox & Company metro van. The story goes that the metro van, like the semi a year earlier, was only available to drivers and G. Fox store employees in the Hartford, CT store. Is finding an old Tonka like this sort of like finding a Shelby Cobra under a tarp in an old barn?
