Vintage toy trucks and buses

Discussion in 'The Antiquated' started by Ron Funkhouser, May 9, 2018.

  1. I've liked the old pressed steel trucks since a kid. I realize that we have a Toy Hot Rod thread, and that's cool. But I was kinda reluctant to post pictures of old trucks on it. So if any HAMB'ers have any of these old toy trucks and buses lets see them. Even the rusty ones.;) Thanks Ron.... 20160209_110928.jpg 20170120_001009.jpg 20170120_001714.jpg

    I'd be tempted to get some old wood and make that rusty one into the Beverly Hillbillies truck

  3. I like your idea, and may try that. I'll post a photo of it back here if I do.;) Here's a NYLINT Mobile Home truck. I loved playing with toy trucks as a kid. Toys were much cooler then. Thanks Ron... 20170808_180528.jpg

    Still have my Mound Ford Fire Truck I got in in 1956. Restored it a couple years ago.

  7. Doesn't anyone else like old toy trucks? I played in the sand box, and dirt piles making roads as a kid. I told Santa, {and my parents} that all I that wanted for Christmas was Cars and trucks. This old Kelment dump is one of my favorites. Way before my time though. lol They're very realistic and look like the real 1920's White Trucks. upload_2018-6-4_8-16-46.jpeg 20170627_130751.jpg

    more Wyandotte, these are early to mid 50's. Wyandotte went out of business in 1956. they started making pressed steel toy guns in 1929 and used scrap steel from Detroit in the earlier years. Marx bought the dies for these and sold them with Marx "paint jobs"

    2 more trucks from Marx. they made that car hauler from about 1937 to the mid 50's with 3 or 4 different cabs, it had plastic cars originally. I bought this particular one because of the fancy wheels.... the red one has working headlights:) IMG_6439.JPG IMG_6443.JPG

    Those are some neat old truck toys. I never see any of them around here, guess they got played with and then tossed out years ago. I had some Tonka, Nylint, and Buddy L trucks back in the 60's when I was a kid, no idea what became of them. My Mom babysat my cousins for years, they probably destroyed them after I left home.

    your truck is made by Marx. they made Studebaker trucks in a variety of sizes and styles. here's mine... about 15" long.

    1953 sad face in original paint and decals. Even has the original cardboard seat insert...by Murray. 20180620_110905 (2).jpg
     
  22. Don't know if this qualifies as a truck but it is unique. Bought at the flea market across the street for $10 it was missing a front bumper which I made using a piece of 1/2" Lexan and a piece of 2-56 threaded rod for a bumper overrider. First toy I have ever seen made in the Philippines. Jeepney 001.jpg Jeepney 002.jpg Jeepney 003.jpg Jeepney 004.jpg JeepneyWithNewBumper 001.jpg
     
  23. This is an 1930's Cor-Cor bus. It was given to the guy that I got if from, for Christmas when it was new.:) 1278.jpg I spotted it in his yard years ago. It was with some other toys of his kids. I asked him if he would sell it? He said sure, how about $10 bucks? :eek: I said hay that's great!:D I could never sell any of my toys, that I had as a kid. I guess that not everyone is so sentimental.:rolleyes: lol Ron...
