Buddy L "Red Baby" International Harvester Express Truck Pressed Steel Toy - Restored


Selling on Friday

This may be the most sought-after Buddy L Pressed Steel Truck from the 1920s, the International Harvester "Red Baby" Express. This example has been treated to a professional restoration and presented in a condition that is at, or better than, when it was new over 80 years ago. The entire truck, body and chassis, were painted very close to the original shade of red, the tires are polished steel with red centers and proper decals have been applied to the top of the radiator, side panels of the hood, as well as the sides of the cab and cargo bed. Doors open and close, the steering wheel turns the front wheels and the radiator is fitted with a polished brass ornament. This version with the doors is a very rarely seen item and this restored example is stunning. 25" L x 8" W x 11" H.
