Wheels roll and turn as they should. As to be expected with a toy of this age, the friction on this vehicle turns but it only works weakly. The driver and the guy on the back are original. The ladder raises and lowers, but the old string on this has given up the ghost and will need to be replaced.
This piece is in good condition with no breaks, restorations, repairs, or touch-ups. This piece shows the usual patina, fading, dust, chips, scuffs, surface rust, scratches, missing accessories, and wear that are to be expected from age and play. This is approximately 21” L. We invite you to view the photos to further determine quality and condition.
