You don't find 'em like this anymore!
I aquired this from the ORIG owner who assured me this was NEVER stored outside, that is why the RUBBER is in as good of condition that it is.
ERTL - DYERSVILLE. OHIO - ORIG ERTL ALLIS-CHAMLERS 8070 PEDAL TRACTOR Model #A-64 Part #190-7601 is in ORIGINAL CONDITION, with NORMAL wear for a PLAYED with toy that is 40 years old?
I suspect this to be from the 1960's/1970's, it's CAST and in AWESOME condition, the only 2 NON-ORIGINAL parts (see pics) is the "PIN" that holds the sterring wheel to the steering shaft is a nail. And one (1) of the front wheels has been replaced with what looks like a lawnmower wheel.
The RUBBER - PEDALS - REAR TIRES - SEAT are NOT dry rotted! They are still very pliable. The paint is ORIG, the chain & sprockets are in GREAT condition, looks as though it still has the ORIG lube & the sprockets show hardly any wear.
CAn anyone tell me anything about this, like year, etc.
Thanx for any help!
