Metalcraft Corp. Pressed Steel Private Label Sunshine Biscuits Stake Truck for Sale *SOLD*
Metalcraft Corp. Pressed Steel Private Label Sunshine Biscuits Stake Truck
This is a great kids’ toy that was a survivor. It is a private-label truck by Metalcraft of St. Louis, MO!
The stake truck advertises Sunshine Biscuits in yellow, with a contrasting red cab and a blue stake bead. Grill and wheels are the early variety ca. 1929 and silver all metal design.
These trucks have a great presence and tend to rust away, so this is a very clean original example with kid wear on the roof and toys.
