Vintage 1970s Large Yellow Tonka Crane in Pressed Steel and Plastic


Another classic design and an iconic brand, Tonka. This is a large yellow Tonka crane in pressed steel and plastic and it’s in great condition considering its age and use.  There’s barely a mark to the paintwork (original, by the way) and stickers are intact on the cab on both sides. A very clean example and these are hard to come by now. There are some things to note – it’s missing its string and hook but that could be easily remedied depending on what the ultimate use of the crane is going to be. We had envisaged it perhaps being turned into a lamp base for a man-cave, but we’ll now leave that up to the next guardian to determine. We will include a length of suitable cord and a Meccano hook (not the original Tonka one, but very similar) should that be the buyer’s choice – just let us know 🙂

It’s also very very slightly awry at the front where the left headlight should sit inside the grille section. It’s barely noticeable, but it deserves to be pointed out. These minor defects aside, this is an incredibly well-presented survivor and a great example of the type.
