It would be helpful if you posted a photo, or described unique markings or features.

At the moment I'm in Thailand, will be back soon...I live here so once I go back Italy I'm working all day and have no time for internet. I will take a picture and publish in january when I'm back here and I have more time...
For the moment you can look this link:
There is only one in google, the Police version. May you know why only so few pieces are around? Thanks

Question remains: How many was made? See only one Police version in google. Absolutely rare I think...?

Here's a picture of mine.

Aside from the photo there's not much more I can add, except to say it's an uncommon model.

Exactly!! We are lucky I think, continue looking but cannot find...

@ TinTom

I have never seen the Horikawa Fire Chief before. But I have the Police and the Polizei in my collection.

If you want to sell the Fire Chief, I would be interested. :)
