I think this is the Code-3, but why doesn't the vendor say that? More importantly, why are these only around $16.00?  What do you guys think?

Because it's not a Code-3 piece.  It's from the fire engine line that Amercom produced.  Basically cheaper, plastic versions of some rigs that Code-3 made in die-cast.  If you read further in the item description you can see that the seller listed the brand as "Amercom", which is what it is.  There's quite a few copies of stuff that C3 did in the Amercom line, FDNY Rescue just to name one. Type in Amercom Fire Truck on eBay and you'll see dozens of them.

That explains it. Thanks. I'll check the line out.
