TONKA – 1960 YELLOW DRAGLINE- RARE-ORIGINAL Picture(s) and Description:

 283011605682255060 TONKA   1960 YELLOW DRAGLINE  RARE ORIGINAL

THIS IS A TONKA DRAGLINE THAT WAS MADE IN 1960. IT IS THE ORIGINAL YELLOW COLOR. THE YELLOW COLOR WAS USED IN 1959 AND 1960. THEY BOTH HAD THE ROLLER PLATE WHEELS. THE ONLY DIFFERENCE WAS THAT THE 1960 HAD A HOLE DRILLED INTO THE UPPER BODY SUPPORT FOR THE CRANK TO HOLD THE BUCKET AT THE DESIRED HEIGHT. THE LOWER CRANK COULD REST AGAINST A PLACE MADE INTO THE BODY OF THE DRAGLINE TO HOLD THE BUCKET AT ITS DESIRED LENGTH. THESE SMALL CHANGES WERE ADDED BY TONKA IN 1960 BECAUSE OF THE COMPLANTS FROM THE OWNERS OF THESE FINE TOYS IN 1959. THEY WERE HARD TO CONTROL AND DID NOT WORK AS WELL AS THE EARLY SHOVEL MODELS. WITH THESE SMALL FIXES THE DRAGLINE's WORKED MUCH BETTER. BOTH OF THESE MODELS ARE IN THE TONKA LOOK BOOKS. YOU CAN LOOK THEM UP BY GOING TO WWW.NEAT OLD TOYS. JUST SCROLL DOWN TO 1959 AND 1960. THIS DRAGLINE HAS SOME PAINT NICKS AND SOME OF THE NICKS HAVE SOME LIGHT RUST IN THEM,BUT NO RUST THROUGH,,,NO HOLES. THE PAINT HAS SOMES VERY LIGHT SCRATCHS. THERE IS SOME LIGHT RUST ON THE BOTTOM OF THE SWIVEL BODY. {SHOWS IN PICTURES}. THE ROLLER PLATE WHEELS LOOK ALMOST NEW WITH NICE CHROME. THE DECALS ARE COMPLETE. THE BODY TURNS AS IT SHOULD ON THE LOWER TRACK BODY. THE BOOM IS STRIGHT AND LOOKS GREAT. THE BUCKET IS ORIGINAL. THE RUBBER TREADS ARE NICE AND CRACK FREE. NO TEARS OR RIPS. I CANNOT FIND A DENT IN THE BODY ANYWHERE. THIS DRAGLINE HAS BEEN IN A DRY CLOSET OR ATTIC FOR MANY YEARS. NICE FIND FOR THE COLLECTOR. E-MAIL QUESTIONS. INSURANCE IS INCULDED WITHIN THE SHIPPING CHARGE. I USUALLY CAN SHIP THE NEXT DAY AFTER THE PAYMENT IS RECIEVED. NO RESERVE !!!!!! THANKS FOR LOOKING !!!!!!
