The Structo Toy Company had a long and glorious history in Freeport, Illinois. Initially they competed with Arcade, also a famous and notable toy company. Structo lasted into the 1970's when they were bought out by Ertl. Structo prided itself with their quality, good design, and sharp color combination. They were also able to stay fairy current with the tastes and toy models of the times.
This really nice model number 702 cargo truck is clean and sharp, but it does have a few "scratches from use". Not bad however, and it would go well in a higher quality collection. It's totally complete and the decals are fairly good too. All wheels, tires, axles are in good condition, and the skid ramp looks unused.
