I picked this up in a garage sale back in the 1990's for ten bucks. I'm not sure of the date with the unusual truck cab. I could be from the 1980's.
I'm sure some will know out there.

    That cab looks like a International. Not sure what year....

    You could be right with International cab. If I remember right Sears stop using there own fleet of trucks back in the 1980's. They went to contracting for there delivery service.

    Cool looking piece. Look at the bottom of the tractor and the trailor, and if it is assembled with rivets, it's most likely '80s. If it has steel tabs pressed through small slots and bent into each other, then it's likely pre-'80s. I doubt it's any earlier than mid '70s, if it's even that old. The double doors on the trailer make me suspect '70s, but the assembly would be the best giveaway.

    Hello, I've got one just like it. Got it for my Birthday in the mid to late 70's. I can't remember which year to be exact but I do know it was in the 70's. If anyone knows anything else about these trucks I'd love to hear about it.

    This is old Structo tooling, except for the plastic grill, dating back to the 60's. The design was from the Gas Turbine concept trucks of the 60's, I know Ford had one.
    This truck was made after The Ertl Co bought Structo in 1974 and added the plastic grill. I don't remember how long they made this style but by at least 1978 Ertl was using the old Structo trailers on new IH Transtar cab overs trucks.

    Great find in this condition,

    Tom
