Produced by S-Helper Service as a special run for Hoquat Hobbies. Also produced as #HH01925 (road number 105230; see Photo #2). The interesting thing to note about these cars is that the stripe does go across the door on these special-run models, and the tack board is body-color. S-Helper Service did an earlier run of these cars for their own product line (manufacturer IDs #00661) which did not have the stripe go across the door, and the tack board was black.
