This orange Sturditoy is an impressive pressed steel truck. It is considered a coal truck and comes in a very contrasting and desirable bright orange.
The difficult to find dividers are still present on the toy and really add a nice touch. Compartments could be divided or section dividers removed. In the back is a working coal chute for big or small kids.
Tires are a beautiful Firestone branded rubber tire with treads.
We have seen others, but none have been in this good of condition, as even the stickers are still intact and beautiful.
