    Yes they were right in Wyandotte Michigan, also sold as All metal products. They got cut off metal from the auto industry.

    Almost finished with the restoration on a vintage Marx Car Hauler I had laying around. This one was fairly straight and is one of the older versions with the steel wheels. I picked up some of the missing parts and still have to get the correct logo decals.

    1950's Marx Delivery Pickup. It came to me without the grill and tailgate, and had wobbly wheels. The wheels are metal so when a kid banged it around or dropped something on it, the metal around the axle hole would bend and then you had wobbly wheel forever more. I found a donor Marx grain truck with an old rusty grill (which I preferred over new) and unbent wheels. The wheels I painted as you can tell. I had to order the tailgate replacement but was able to find a good old flat blue paint that came real close to matching, and then rubbed some dirt over it IMG_6677[1].JPG IMG_6676[1].JPG IMG_6674[1].JPG IMG_6673[1].JPG . I also touched up the label just a little bit. I am not a model builder nor a perfectionist.

  11. Hi Craig, I'm sorry you didn't understand. I ment to say that I paid $5 for it. I would have paid more because I loved it's rough condition. I added the hay bails to make it look like an old farm truck. I don't really sell stuff. But at some point, maybe I should. I never intended to be a collecter. It just happened! Lol 616.jpg I've always loved going to swap meets, and toy shows. Part of the FUN is in the find, and I've found alot of them. Or they've found me. lol So good luck , and happy collecting. Have a very Merry Christmas. Ron........

    Just let this Kingsbury Aerial truck go to a friend today. Been sitting on top shelf in one of my rooms collecting dust for almost 20 years. Empty spot so I guess I will have to find something to fill the space.

    These are 3 trucks I had when I was a kid. Bless my Mom & Dad for saving them for me! One is a Marx, one is a Tonka and the other is a Nylint. I guess my parents liked variety when they did Christmas shopping.

    This was my favorite, I loved that truck!!
    IMG_2441.jpg

    This Uranium Hauler was a death trap. It was painful to play with!! Picture a small boy crawling in a sandbox and wanting to move the truck with the palm of his hand on the cab roof and his fingers where the cab windshield would be. As soon as you started to push the truck forward it would nose dive into the sand because of the set back front axle. If you lost your balance your face was next to hit the sand. If that wasn't bad enough when you picked up the truck you had to totally avoid the area between the cab and the tongue of the trailer, because if the trailer swung sideways it would pinch your finger between the back of the cab and the tongue of the trailer. It could have a been a great toy. It had a spring loaded hydraulic cylinder with a lever for dumping the load which was cool.

    This one had a car hauler trailer as I recall. Unfortunately the trailer is long gone. Amazing the wheel covers are still on it.

    I had others but these were the ones my parents saved.

    LMAO...Too funny.

    Back in the day it was survival of the fittest when it came to our toys. Only the toughest (and smartest) kids survived unscathed and we soon learned "don't do that cuz it hurts".
    Sadly, in todays "nanny society" of "child safe" toys, kids don't get the opportunity to learn from these same mistakes we made. And God forbid some kid gets a scratch from a current toy...there will be lawsuits and a nationwide recall of that "death toy".

    And don't get me going on how modern society views my old Hubley Texas Ranger Cap Gun...:eek::mad:

    So now that I have labeled the Uranium Hauler a “death trap” does it make me a bad Grandpa for letting my grandsons play with it?o_O:D
    I hope not, judging by its condition I played with it a lot and it’s one of the trucks my parents saved for me.:cool:

    I see many cars and trucks but no gas pumps. :eek: how will you all get home?

    this is from Wyandotte Toys in the 30's. originally there was a glass cylinder on top, and a bladder inside that I assume held liquid, you squeezed the bladder and filled up the glass tank on top, just like the real thing. this one had the jar broken and missing so I put a little glass paint jar on top. I paid over $100.00 less for this one than the one that sold recently complete, so I can live with a little glass paint jar replacement.
    this picture is from ebay so no glass jar.
