Arcade Mac Dump Truck in Original Conditon for Sale

 

Our Arcade Mac truck is crusty, chipped, loved, has hardened rubber tires, has rust, but is original.  It is what many cast iron collectors love– Originality and an old-school patina that only time gives.

The dump truck is around 12″ in length and a mammoth toy once enjoyed in person.  The spring loaded piston can be released, launching the shaft up and dump bed to an angle for unloading.  The gate is hinged to dump the cargo.

Our original driver is missing his square nut, but still there.  Ropes appear original and safely operate the dump bed.  Tires have some flat spots, but are still there and have greatly hardened due to time.

Arcade Mfg. Co. Freeport, Illinois
1868 – 1946
Founder: E.H. and Charles Morgan
Specialty: First made toys and coffee mills and then moved to a new site in 1893 (after fires, financial issues, and renaming from Novelty Iron Works).  Arcade toy catalogs appear to start at 1902.  As late as 1939, Arcade`s toy line included over 300 toy items. Yellow Cab was their first successful toy. Andy Gump in 348 and Chester Gump in His Pony Cart were other popular toys for collectors.
