Thes 2 toys were my favorite ones. The Texaco Tanker has a motor and took 2 D-cell batteries. My dad bought this at a Texaco station in Highlandville, Mo. It was in the summer in 1961. It would float in water and propel through the water and would slowly fill up an internal reservoir. This would make it appear it was loaded with oil. I have no idea what its worth but it means a lot to me because I enjoyed it in my youth.
The second toy is a Navy Fighter bomber. Made by Hubley this plane is made of metal. The wings fold up and the wheels also fold up into the bottom of the plane. It's amazing that I still have the box that goes with it but it has seen its days. I got this plane from my mom as a reward for being good and brave for going to a dentist that didn't believe in using novacaine. I was 7 years old at the time.
