Standard Oil pressed steel trucks that have never been played with, they were on display at a museum. I don't know too much about them except that one of the trucks has a brass tag on the bottom that says "309 of 350" I assume this makes them rare. I don't know if these trucks were distributed to Standard Oil stations or what. If any of you toy guys have any info, please let me know. Thanks

    These were made by Wally Hooker in the 1980's and sold at toy shows and mail order. Very nice.

    Thanks AzTom for the information, Without any makers mark on them, I hadn't a clue who made them. Thanks Again!

    gargoylecollector, I'm not sure where they were manufactured, your guess as mine.

    Chevy, I found an ad in a a Toy Famer Magazine from 1991 that had the same IH trucks with different beds made by Wally Hooker that ranged in price from$195-250 [I would guess yours with the trailers cost a little more!]I will look for another ad that may have you trucks in it when I get a chance. I found nothing from Wally Hooker/Cottonwood acres after 12/91 .and they are from Francesville IN.

    gargoylecollector thanks for the info, I can't believe they are from Francesville, Indiana, my ex-wife's family lives in Francesville, it's a small world. Lol

    I should add more info. Cottonwood made the IH tanker painted Standard, Hap's Oil.
    I would guess someone made the next two to match the Hap's Cottonwood IH.
    The IH semi tanker is a Cottonwood truck but the trailer looks like an early Smith Miller.
    The B Model Mack is all Smith Miller.

    Awesome set of trucks.

    Thanks AzTom for the info. I had a guy want to buy these a few months ago, but didn't know what they were worth, I have never seen any sell. Do you have any idea of the value? Thx
