1932 Turner Lincoln Panel Delivery PrototypeOffered Without Reserve
Turner was a leader in the world of quality pressed steel toys in the late 1920s and early 1930s. One of their best-selling toys was the Lincoln Sedan from the early 1930s. Just like real cars, toy makers are always looking for new models and ideas and this Panel Delivery was one idea that the designers at Turner developed but did not take to production. The hood, fenders, chassis, and cowl of this model were fashioned from the production Lincoln sedan; the rear end of this truck is hand-fabricated and assembled. It features a working rear door, front seat and what appears to be a handcrafted six-spoke steering wheel. The factory fit and finish is good but not perfect. It does have headlight buckets and hood ornament but does not appear to have ever had a bumper fitted to the front or rear of this vehicle. Our consignor located this unique toy at a swap meet and was told it had been secreted out of the factory and passed down a couple of generations before being offered for sale. This is truly a rare opportunity to own one of the most desirable pieces of toy making history, an actual full-size prototype toy vehicle. It is presented in bare metal with a minimum of patina. The rear door lines up and fits tightly. There are several tooling marks on the exterior panels and fenders, most likely made when this body was being fitted to the chassis.

Buddy L Hoisting Tower Pressed Steel ToyOffered Without Reserve
One of the most impressive steel toys from the late 1920s, the Hoisting Tower was an engineering marvel. After filling the shovel scoop, the turning crank would raise it up and dump its contents into the hopper. Once lowered, a switch was flipped and the hopper would be raised with the same cranks to the top of the tower and then dumped into a dispensing unit, which would then direct the materials to one of three telescoping chutes to awaiting toy dump trucks. This example is complete with original dark blue paint with the factory decals still legible. Lifting and dumping operations could use a fresh restringing and a sympathetic cosmetic cleaning-restoration would benefit this toy. Mounted on a 12" x 12" base, the tower is 38" high with the three chutes that extend 26" from their base. LOCAL PICKUP ONLY!
