Updated with length of engine. Iron toy truck manufactured by the Moline Pressed Steel Company in 1926. All four wheels spin and the front wheels turn left and right (though a bit stiffly). The turntable behind the cab functions as does the mechanism to unhook the ladder portion but its pulley system is without its coiled rope and as such, the three sections do not rise on their own. Truck measures approximately 30 1/2" in length (39" with the ladder collapsed), 10 1/2" high ( 55 1/2" with ladder extended) and 9" wide. There is definite age related wear evident in the form of fading and chipping paint, faded decals and rust. Keywords: toy, antique, vintage, automobile, car
