In the early 1960's the Nylint Toy Company began producing some realistic Ford Trucks exclusively for Ford as well as their line for the general public. I acquired this with a collection of Auto Show Ephemera. Plastic Promo cars are fine for the older kid, but smaller ones want something to play with outside. If you can't get through to Mom and Pop, go for the kids. Up to 33% off on the top tier item!
End of an Era
In the mid 1960's Nylint would move away from accurate, realistic trucks to more modern styled products. Over the next 40 years the pressed steel toy landscape would change with rising production costs bankrupting some and other companies being absorbed.
