Description
Buddy L Tank Truck

Buddy L tank truck in great original condition. These were the cadilac of early “floor toys”. The Buddy L Corporation in Meline, IL was the first company to make these highly sturdy toys of quite heavy gauge metal. While they were almost undistructable, it is rare to find them today in this wonderful condition. All the paint, decals and features are original. The child could actually sit on the truck, the steering is movable and the water spigot is operable. These trucks were made in the late 1920's and only lucky children of wealthy parents would have found one under the Christmas tree. About 26” long x 9 ½” wide x 12” high. Circa 1926.
