The Iloca Rapid B is a fixed lens rangefinder made by Iloca from 1954 to about 1958. The name "Rapid" refers to the fast wind lever. It is equipped with a Steinheil Cassar S 2.8/50 lens on a Prontor SVS shutter.
This camera was particularly successful in the USA since it was sold by Sears & Roebuck under the name Tower 51 and by Realist Realist 35. In the UK, its name was Iloca Quick B.
