    This is a Structo Sanitation Truck from the early 60s. This is pressed steal like the better known Tonka trucks. This one is 17" long, 5" wide and 8' tall. It has several moving parts for play value. The trash receptacle moves up to dump into the top along with the top hatch opening. Also it works like a dump truck so you can dump all your garbage. The hydraulic function no longer works, it just springs up when the side lever is hit. When working the hydraulics (a piston under the dumper0 would dampen the raising and lowering of the dumper.
    No restoration for this.
