Wyandotte Toys All Metal Products Company Pressed Steel Metal & Plastic Auto Hauler Playset with Garage
We have for you a ca. 1950’s pressed steel “Metal & Plastic Auto Hauler” playset with garage that was manufactured by Wyandotte Toys (All Metal Products Co.) of Wyandotte, Michigan.
Wyandotte toy haulers are normally much larger. However here, we get all the hauler goodness in a 9″ package that fits neatly next to a keyboard. The cars, which are 90% of the time missing, fit either below the top deck or fit on top and two fit into the garage. This pressed steel semi-trailer auto hauler truck comes with the often lost plastic garage and 6 plastic cars. The streamlined hauler comes in a beautiful red cab, blue and yellow trailer package. Wheels roll as they should, trailer tongue is still intact, and the garage door is intact and raises and lowers.
Note some interesting features of this toy, the paint job was a dip & you can see some small runs and imperfections. This was factory correct. Also, you an see some fine parallel lines where the toy metal went on a “break” in order to form it. The paint has thicker and thinner spots of coverage, as it was a drip dried toy.
Our example of this Wyandotte auto hauler playset is in very good all original condition with no breaks, restorations, repairs, or touch ups This piece shows the usual patina, fading, dust, chips, scuffs, surface rust, scratches, and wear that are to be expected from age and play. The auto hauler is approximately 9 ¼” L x 2 ¼” W x 2” H. The garage is approximately 2 ¾” L x 2 ½” W. Each plastic car is approximately 2″ L x 1″ W. We invite you to view the photos to further determine quality and condition.
