Found another Buckeye truck for the collection. They are special to me because I grew up in Ohio, the Buckeye State, and then lived in Buckeye AZ.
These were originally made by Dunwell around 1954 thru 1955. They were then marketed by Frame Metal Products. Around 1959 Ohio Art started making them as buckeye trucks by changing the grill to Buckeye, hub caps and printing "Buckeye Toys" on the tires.
They are about the size of Tonka trucks, this one is about 23 inches long.
