Vintage 1950s NyLint Toy Pressed Steel TournaHopper Earth Mover Center Dump 22" L USA

The Nylint #1500 Tournahopper is a great, smooth-operating earth hauler. The unique clamshell bay doors were well engineered. Best I can figure from internet research is this vintage toy, there were three versions of this toy which was produced from 1952 through 1956 (this one appears to be the first or second version). The versions are based only on grille design and color. All other construction details remained the same throughout production. Model authorized by R.G. LeTourneau Inc and manufactured by NY-LINT Tool & Mfg Co of Rockford, Illinois. This Tourna Hopper earth mover would make a nice addition to your collection or fantastic gift for child or grandchild. 

Approx. Dimensions: 22" L x 5-3/4" W x 6-1/4" T (both pieces connected)

Approx. Weight: 5 lbs, 11 ozs

Sold as is. No warranty from the seller. No Returns.

CONDITION NOTE: Used, but in overall very good condition for its age, except missing the original exhaust pipe and decals (see pictures). The hopper opens and closes (but requires some force on open) and wheels are in very good condition and turn properly. This vintage toy earth mover has scratches, edge wear, dirt, light surface rust on grill and inside cap, some minor dents, and may be missing some parts that I may not be aware of (check pictures). Earth mover is currently yellow, but appears to have been originally yellow and was painted over at some point. Does not come with any original boxes, packaging, or any related paperwork. Will be packed carefully and insured for safe shipping. Please see the full description and all high resolution detailed images (which are zoom-able) of this listing to know what you are purchasing.
