I have two of these Tonka Jeep wreckers both in fairly tough shape as you can see in the pictures. Both need a grill (seen one on ebay for $15 plus but couldn't break open the vault to buy it!) I don't think the trucks are even worth that! So here is the big question ... are they worth buying parts for and restoring?? Thanks for any input!

    Here's my general rule: if you love your truck and would love to restore it to display or pass down to future generations, then go for it! $15 doesn't seem too steep a price to make a major dent in a restoration project. But if you only want to restore it to sell, then you have to decide if it's worth it. It might not be.
