Ross Tool & Manufacturing Co. Plastic Fire Truck - Red & Yellow w/Outriders

Another Nifty '50s toy from the early part of that decade. The last time we featured a fire truck from Ross Tool & Manufacturing was way back in November 2010, shortly after the blog's start. After slogging through photos trying to come up with today's post I found some pics of variations on this engine. The engine we posted way back in 2010 had a red body with white driver, ladder, and wheels. Today's version has a red body with yellow driver, ladder, and wheels and measures 4 3/4" (12.1cm) L x 1 1/2" (3.8cm) W x 1 3/4" 4.4cm) H. It also has two outriders which I'd never seen before in this toy - probably why I bought it to begin with!! The ladders on these are glued on but often times found missing. Enjoy!
