This colorful tin truck is a vintage toy from the Louis Marx & Co. subsidiary, Linemar. It’s a combination front end loader and dump truck and would have given a child hours of joy. The cab is red, the body is orange, the dump bed is yellow and the scoop is blue. It has little rubber tires and a friction motor. There’s a little lever on the side to raise and lower the dump bed. Behind the little license plate on the back it is marked Line Mar Toys- Japan. I believe it is from the 1950’s.
The overall length with the scoop down is about 5 ½” long and it measures about 1 ¾” to the top of the cab. It is in very good condition with minimal wear. The friction motor works fine.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
