Vintage ca. 1960’s Original Tonka Pressed Steel Dual Rear Wheel Cement Mixer Truck for Sale
Vintage ca. 1960’s Original Tonka Pressed Steel Dual Rear Wheel Cement Mixer Truck
This is a vintage pressed steel dual wheel cement mixer truck manufactured by Tonka Toys of Mound, Minnesota.
The tires are rubber and say “Tonka Toys U.S.A.” The stickers on the sides of the cab and mixer are original and intact. The mixer works as it should.
Our example of this Tonka Toys cement mixer is in excellent condition with no restorations, breaks, or repairs. It does appear that there has been some touchup done to the left rear fender along the edge. This piece shows the usual patina, dust, chips, scuffs, surface rust, scratches, and wear that are to be expected from age and play. It is approximately 14 ¼” L. This would be a great addition to any pressed steel collection. 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 Dakota Sioux tongue.
