This example is designated 8073-B on the base. My guess (completely unconfirmed) is that 8073-B is the version with a trailer hitch, while plain 8073 is without a hitch. If anyone has one of those it would be great to see if my guess is correct, haha.

This one came in a "First Responder" 2-pack from Greenbrier International (Dollar Tree).

Awesome, that mystery didn't take long to solve! Comparing the two bases there are quite a few little differences. I think they must have made a completely new mold for the B version rather than just modifying the original mold.

The running edge of the tires also are off set from the out side edge as well. Thought the '5 star' wheel pattern looks the same. 🤙
