his one is a bit of a beater but I bought it anyway as it is an interesting model.
The K-2 KW-Dart Dump Truck was made from 1964-1968. I think it is actually a quarry truck which is the largest sort of dump truck. The kind with the 15 foot tall tires that are displayed here and there. Usually outside the quarries. It is about as tall as a locomotive with a ladder for the driver to get in the cab.
Among the nifty features for this model and the niftiest is the hydraulics for raising and lowering the dump bed. Also it articulated. Then there is the detailed engine with the silver exhaust pipes.
In the meantime there is plenty of material for exciting posts this week including Vaseline glass and maybe even my dinosaur book.
