CONDITION NOTE: Used, and in fair condition for its age and that it was well played with. This vintage toy construction vehicle has scratches, dents, rust, faded yellow paint, some dirt from use, and may be missing some parts that I may not be aware of (please check pictures). The front loader is bent and needs some tender loving care to straighten it out to get the bucket working smoothly again. Wheels roll nicely. Does not come with any original boxes, packaging, or any related paperwork. See all detailed high resolution (zoom-able) pictures to know what you are purchasing.
