Kids and trucks seem to have an ongoing attraction for each other . . . and here's a popular toy vehicle that any youngster will enjoy for years. This pint-size version of a dump truck is made from plywood, runs by pedal power and has a working steering mechanism.
Other realistic features include a crankshaft on the forward set of rear tires (8-inch lawn-mower wheels) and the back set of rear tires "floats" on rough terrain.
The dump lever operates by pivoting on a roller that moves under the dump box, causing it to rise . . . and allowing the driver to deliver his pay dirt from one end of the yard to the other.
Full-size traceable parts, detailed drawings and step-by-step directions guide you in construction. To obtain Dump Truck, Pattern No. 682, please send $5.50. No. C53 Truck Packet has three plans for a panel truck, bulldozer and diesel for only $8.50. Prices include postage and handling.
