Below is another example of a Morrell Meats box van. There were only two of this version manufactured. I asked Don about this truck. He replied: "Did put two trucks together with left over parts and gave them to the candidate running for county sheriff some years ago. These trucks were sold at silent auction as a fund raiser..." I asked Don about the decal on the bottom of the truck. "...those were the decals I used for the Steiff pickup trucks I made and I had a few left over. So it is a truck I made for the fund raiser...Don"


Desalle Tonka Morrell Meats Box Van

Value: A near mint plus Morrell Meats box van (with the white box), one barely noticeable scuff and scratch, without its shipping carton, sold on eBay for $311 USD in late March 2008. Note: Stamped into the bottom of this truck is the number 093. It would seem to indicate the ninety-third truck of this series. Since these trucks were made with left over parts, it's possible the chassis (where the number is stamped) was left over from another one of Don's series of trucks.

Value: A mint Morrell Meats box van (with the white box), without its shipping carton, sold on eBay for $374 USD in early May 2010. Note: It is not known if this truck has any sort of serial number.
