C.K.O Kellerman 365 German Tin Lithographed Windup Crawler Tractor with Wagon
This piece is a tin, lithographed, windup 365 rubber tread crawler tractor with wagon that was manufactured by Georg Kellerman & Co. (C.K.O., CKO) of Nuremberg, Germany.
This CKO tractor when wound with its replacement key it goes forward pulling its wagon when the start/stop plunger is pulled put or pushed in. The white rubber treads and black rubber tires are still intact in fair/good condition, but as per usual with toys of this age they may have petrified, warped and/or cracked. The treads are held together with staples as these rubber treads never really held up well. We tested this briefly so we didn’t break the treads, it worked. The wagons sides come down to make a flatbed wagon. Driver is original.
This CKO/Kellerman tin, lithographed, windup tractor with wagon is in good all original condition with no breaks, restorations, repairs, or touch ups. This piece shows the usual fading, patina, dust, chips, scuffs, surface rust, scratches, and wear that are to be expected from age and play. It is approximately 8 ¼” L all together. We invite you to view the photos to further determine quality and condition.
