Represented here is a top-shelf restoration on one the most desirable Buddy L toys ever produced, the "Improved Steam Shovel" #220AB. The operator's platform, controls, boom arm, shovel, treads, and boiler are painted in gloss black with the boiler's door opening to show it is perfectly clean and fresh on the inside. The corrugated roof, main frame and tread supports are painted in their original red with proper decals applied. Left in natural metal finish is the hand crank, gears, simulated pistons, and control struts. The operator's cabin swivels by turning the steering wheel. An absolutely beautiful work of plaything art. This toy has been displayed for several years and would benefit from an in-depth detailing. 25" L (with shovel level) x 11" W x 16.5" H.
