Always one vehicle left unknown. I'm thinking this might be something Japanese...?

Bumping. Can anyone deduce what this thing is?

Whatever it is, it's not in its default state, the only original thing may be the chassis, the whole bodywork appears to be custom made by an armoring company.

Whatever it has, it has sealed beam headlights fitted in...

Long time coming and a heck of a lot of digging, but it looks to be based on a 1964 Toyopet Microbus!

Given that the face, mouldng around the sides to the rear, and tail lights all match up with the Microbus I wonder if it's not factory issue? From the link it's clear that earlier generations of the Toyopet Bus were based on the Toyopet Route Truck/Van. This could be a continuation of the theme...although I can find no evidence of this

Who suddenly made this made for movie? We have no proof that it is.

So, got the date slightly wrong. It's a 1962 Toyopet RK160B, clearly based on the Microbus per the picture attached (see top left) https://rarebooksjapan.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/2120__07.jpg

Was it made for the movie? No. Tomica Toys have a news van in their model range (identified as an Isuzu of a similar vintage https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/NyoAAOSwQNJkR4ld/s-l1600.jpg ) so we know that Japanese news networks were commissioning dedicated vehicles, and were recognisable enough to be made into toys.

It's probable then that this is a coachbuilt special based on the Microbus, that likely had come to the end of its working life before being one final hurrah acting as the GNT News Van.
