1934 Ford Farm Stake Truck - O Scale On30 - 1/43 Diecast

$ 199.99


Take a look at the toys-to-treasures comparison photos and you'll see how much we scaled this truck down closer to true O scale from 1:43 scale. This model may look a little like all the other diecast 1934 trucks out there but it's different from the frame up. Scratch built from a heavily modified brand new donor 1:43 scale diecast 1934 Ford Truck frame this stake truck is a full 4 scale feet shorter and a little narrower to make it closer to O scale.

Gone is the giant block of plastic that housed the pullback toy gearing - replaced with scale sized open framing like a real truck with scratch built leaf spring and drive shaft detailing. The truck has highly detailed plastic stake truck sides on a brand new wood plank bed common to this time period on a new scratch built rear frame. There's a fully painted weathered interior, clear headlight bezels, clear windshield & rear window glass plastic (NOT frosted), lots of under frame details, dual side mirrors, real readable period front & rear license plates and a completely detailed dusty rusty engine and radiator under the wing hinged hood.

The wheels roll smoothly (NO pullback action) and both doors open to reveal a detailed interior with bench seat, dashboard, steering wheel, brake, gas pedal, clutch and tall bent gear shift. The finished model has several coats of flat acrylic weathering over it, so it will look good (or would that be bad) for many years to come.

This truck is about 5 inches long by 1 3/4 inches wide. All dimensions are approximate (+/-) unless otherwise stated in the listing. This is completely built. We've done all the hard work for you. Buyer will receive the actual model shown in the photos, completely finished, ready to drop in place. Items combined if possible and include professional packing and insurance. Background scenery and original Snap-On Tools truck shown for comparison are NOT included.
