What is the retail on the first issue of the truck?  If this is a truck and a trailer, I might be in...there's potential for some pretty wild decals for this thing...

$61.xx at Model Roundup. Sounds like a $10 premium for the decals.

Looks like I better get mine soon.  I don't want to pay extra for decals I'm just going to toss.

I'll pass. That's a gimmick I don't need. I like the truck though.

Could it be one of those cartoon green figures shifting gears?

That iron-on brings back some great memories !  Isn't that a Roach  design ? 

Roach, but probably done by Ed Newton.  Roth lost his studio in his first divorce, Newton moved on and linked up with Roach for a few more years.

Thanks for the new-to-me , additional info . I knew that there was a connection between Roth et al. , but I'd obviously forgotten about Newton ( I recall his signature on numerous iron-on and other artwork ) .

Roth's studio was definitely losing momentum prior to his having lost it.  Robert Williams' ads got him in hot water with Petersen Publishing.  There's supposedly a letter that Roth got from Petersen, listing all of the things deemed offensive, that couldn't be included in the ads...it's said to be pretty hilarious.
