The CAB is from a 1934 Buddy L dump truck. It was very beatup to begin with. The back end & rear fenders are all from new steel. Worth mentioning about the boom mechanism: tons of work!

So, it is definitely a FANTASY piece.

LC 336,

This custom toy was made by a master-craftsman (almost 80 years old). He is very slow producing these toys, that is why they are pricy.

I wish I had his talent frown
