Manoil Road Grader - Red HP with Trailers

Here we have yet another nifty '50s vehicle, this time a road grader for your miniature construction site. The toy is from Manoil, who many collectors associate with those gorgeous sleek, streamlined die-cast cars made before WWII. After the war they turned to plastic and this is just a couple of their offerings. The grader is quite diminutive at 3 1/4" (8.3cm) L x 1 3/8" (3.5cm) W x 1 3/8" (3.5cm) H and is marked 'P11' underneath. The trailers are 2" (5.1cm) L x 1 3/8" (3.5cm) H x 1 1/8" (2.9cm) H and are marked 'P13' underneath. The grader is interesting in that it's made from a fairly thick plastic with heavy duty metal axles and hard rubber wheels. Quite a stable little toy! Hope you all Enjoy our  Photos !
