1953 Tonka G. Fox & Company Private Label Semi

Tonka collector and website contributor Richard Gresh has done considerable research and states; "The 1953 cab over G.Fox semi was only given to G. Fox drivers and some other employees at the department store in Hartford, CT. It was not sold to the public. The cab over semi is rarer than the metro van."
