1950 STRUCTO "AUTO TRANSPORT" TRUCK AND TRAILER TOY. WHEN I ORIGINALLY FOUND THIS ITEM, INSIDE A BARN, HIDING UNDER THE WHEEL WELL OF A OLD TRACTOR, I DIDNT HOLD OUT MUCH HOPE FOR IT, AS IT WAS COMPLETELY COVERED IN RED PAINT. BUT BECAUSE I'M A SUCKER FOR VINTAGE TOYS AND DO RESTORATIONS ON OCCASION, I TOOK IT HOME AND GOT TO WORK. SHOCKINGLY, AFTER ABOUT TEN HOURS OF VERY GENTLE PAINT REMOVAL, THIS WELL CONDITIONED TOY CAME INTO VIEW. ALTHOUGH I DID FEEL THIS TOY WAS WORTHY OF COMPLETE RESTORATION, I DEEMED IT UNNECESSARY, YES IT SHOWS IT'S AGE BUT WHAT 60 YEAR TOY DOESNT? WHY REMOVE THE GREAT PATINA? ANOTHER INTERESTING THING TO CONSIDER FOR THOSE WHO WOULD RESTORE IT, IS YOU CAN STILL OBTAIN THE DECALS FOR IT. $85.00 AND SHIPPING IS FREE FOR ALL DOMESTIC U.S. CUSTOMERS.
