My toy Truck from when I was a kid

Recommended Posts

My parents dug out some stuff to decorate for the Holidays & they found this. When I was a kid my parents bought this in a box lot at an auction (over 40 years ago) & I played with it forever. I remember sitting on the trailer & driving all over the house with the trailer filled full of other toys. When I got into my teens it was the perfect place to hide a bottle of booze. My parents moved to Tennessee when I was 18 & they stayed over 10 years. Then moved back to New York after my wife & I had kids. You can't keep Grandparents away!  The other day my father said he had something for me to take home. I though the truck was long gone, so it was pretty cool to see it again. It still is painted the way it was when I got it & is in pretty good shape for the amount of miles it has on it. I think I might strip it down, fix the cracks in the wood & give it a new paint job. Anyway, I figured all you truckers would enjoy this.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!!

Yes leave it as is!! You can't replicate the look that truck has! It's a piece of art that should remain the way time has made it.:)

But don't let the children play with it because it might be painted with lead paint.

Yup. Don't touch it. But it is YOUR truck after all.

I have to agree with the folks above this post, I'd let it be myself. But as mentioned it is your truck, just my opinion.

Cool story and I like the truck I think it's pretty neat.

Wouldn't hurt to restore it. People are restoring matchbox and hot wheels and they look great.

To me it would be a real timepiece to have just as it is if it were me.   Sure people restore things and they look great but the history is pretty much lost...and its autographed .
