Unfortunately, I don't think there is such a thing.
They used a custom-made font format (which is bitmap, not vector) and rolled out their own font rendering engine.
Maybe they worked from a known font, but I couldn't find which. They probably changed it quite a bit if that's the case.

There is a very similar LBA font out there, it's called Serifa B.
Checkout the attached ttf file

I believe Jasiek is right. I believe that Fred and his team used Lubalin as their basis for the LBA font, because they are ridiculously close.

Wanna know what's really weird? I only began seeing Lubalin months ago. Ranging everywhere from cars, to trucks, and even advertising in general. As soon as I learned about the original font that is only when I realized just how many people use it around us (here in the US anyways - not sure about you guys).

Heck, if you just do a search on, "Lubalin Font" you'll see it everywhere.

Isn't it interesting that each character you see on your monitor is really just a number in memory? Seriously, if you refer to an ASCII chart, you can see what value the character is equal to.
