The body of the vehicle is predominately red in color and is made of metal. Its grill and front fenders are painted white. A yellow border separates the red from the white. Yellow arches are painted on the roof and above the rear wheels of the vehicle. The wheels and the windows are molded in black plastic and the chassis is molded in light gray plastic. The wheels are connected on a wire axle. The front wheels, with star-shaped silver hubcaps, are smaller in diameter, and width, in comparison to the rear wheels.

The applicable subheading for this toy vehicle will be 9503.90.0045, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Other toys; Other; Other toys and models. The rate of duty will be free.
