“New” Al-Toy Truck

• CATEGORIES: Features, toys

UPDATE: Barney nots that this may be the original paint color. That makes me happier!

This was the first chance I had at getting an Al-Toy truck, so I snagged it off ebay in the last few seconds. It seems pretty original, other than the phone number on the side. The truck has a great weight and is slightly longer than the jeeps.

Here it is pictured with my 2 CJ-2A Al-Toys:

“1953 Willys M38 flat fender with original Army data tags with Bill of Sale only, never titled or registered and not street legal. This little Jeep is in great shape with very little rust and lots of maintenance and upgrades. Includes a full top and doors, tow bar, rear hitch rack, rifle rack and a tote full of spare parts. It starts and runs, but can be a little finicky to drive smoothly and does leak oil from various places. It has a full new fuel system, new fuel tank, electric fuel pump and new downdraft carb. Overall this is a great rig and would be perfect for a deer lease or to teach a kid to drive a manual on a country road. Will consider trade offers for TJ Wrangler or ‘97-‘01 XJ.”
