This colorfully painted wood cement truck shows that some people with time on their hands can be very creative! Above the cab of the truck it reads; Top Cement and if you remember old wooden tops you'll recognize that the concrete mixing barrel is made out of one (marked; Made in Taiwan on the metal end). Besides being made of simple pieces of wood with a few pieces of metal wire, it's fun to note that the leaf springs are made of Popcicle sticks. On the bottom it is "signed" with a fingerprint or thumbprint and a few characters that look oriental. Homemade toys like this were popular in the 1950's and 60's.
It measures about 2 7/8" high to the bar over the roof of the cab and about 6 ¼" in length. It's in good condition with light wear and just a little paint loss.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
