Tonka 50th Anniversary Pickup DeSalle Collectible

DeSalle Tonka 50th Anniversary Pickup

A beautiful example of a pickup truck DeSalle used to commemorate Tonka's 50th Anniversary. Remember, Tonka manufactured their first toy in 1947. So in addition to the commemorative 1949 dump truck and the commemorative 1956 pickup Tonka had produced in China, DeSalle did his part in 1997 by producing 300 copies to highlight Tonka's golden occasion. DeSalle did not issue a certificate of authenticity with this truck.
