Also note that a vintage Tonka toy in true mint condition means that it has all its accessories and instruction manual intact, received no repair, and comes in its original box.
Three vintage Tonka toy trucks. Tonka Farms white horse trailer and brown truck, blue Marine Service boat carrier, and red Hydraulic dump truck. Hauler 27"L. Normal wear and slight rust.
Here is an Iconic "Round Fendered" Vintage Tonka Toy Pickup Truck from 1957, while this dark blue is one of my favorite colors, it is hard to find in terrific shape like this. The blue metallic paint on these truck has a tendency to "craze" or spider web the paint. The bronze metallic paint had the same trouble form the same timeframe. You can tell this truck is a 1957 by the yellowed push in headlights and the round fender, that makes it a 1956 or 1957 only. And the 1957 Vintage Tonka Toys Pickup Truck has a hood scoop while the 1956 Vintage Tonka Toys Pickup Truck does not.
