Look at this vintage treasure that is going into our Etsy store! It is a 1950s Alps Battery Operated Tin Farm Truck with Cow Toy. The truck works perfectly...the little cows head even bobs up and down!!
Special concrete transport trucks (in–transit mixers) are made to transport and mix concrete up to the construction site.
Concrete mixers generally do not travel far from their plant, as the concrete begins to set as soon as it is in the truck. Many contractors require that the concrete be in place within 90 minutes after loading.
Stephen Stepanian filed a patent application for the first truck mixer in 1916. #nuttinew#ckotoy#vintagetoys#vintagetoycollector#tintruck#oldtoys#rustporn#usedtoys#toyfreak
#Oldtintoy about #tonka sized. Interesting story with this one, just after I was born my Dad found this at the tip at ascot behind the truck depot. This area now is #ascotwaters . Dad painted it up and i have had it pretty much my whole life. The #tipper still operates. #tintoy#toytruck#tintruck @oldcartoy
