We've had this tucked away in storage for a long time ~ not sure why, since it's such a nice MIB example. So I thought I would share it here.

The truck has a wind-up mechanism that allows for forward movement as well as dumping action. In addition, the front wheels are adjustable to allow it to go straight or in a circle. I found an on-line reference that states it is from 1952. Glad we have the box, since the truck itself has no markings as to the maker! The winding key has the letter "L" on it, which I guess means it is a replacement, since other examples I have seen online have the B & S initials on them ~ anyone know differently?
