Tonka Pressed Steel No. 98 “Mini-Tonka Allied Van” Allied Van Lines, Inc. Moving Truck in Box
This is a vintage pressed steel No. 98 “Mini-Tonka Allied Van” Allied Van Lines, Inc. moving truck in box manufactured by Tonka Toys of Mound, Minnesota.
The black rubber tires are still intact, but as per usual with toys of this age, they may have petrified, discolored, warped, and/or cracked. We didn’t notice any problems with the tires, and the wheels turn as they should. Decals have some cracking and chipping on them as often happens with toys of this age. The box is in very good condition.
This piece is in great all original 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 15 ¾” L. We invite you to view the photos to further determine quality and condition.
A brief history of Tonka Toys of Mound, Minnesota:
Tonka was begun by Lynn Everett Baker, Avery F. Crounse, and Alvin F. Tesch in 1946, but it didn’t start out as Tonka; instead Mound Metalcraft in 1946. Tesch re-engineered some old toy concepts left by their building’s previous tenants and dubbed the toys “Tanka,” which means “big” in the Dakota Sioux tongue.
