Ross Toll and Mfg Co. - Plastic Ladder Truck - Red, White Wheels, Yellow Driver and Ladder

Yet another variation of the classic Nifty '50s Ross Tool & Mfg Co. Ladder Truck. This one has white wheels and yellow driver and ladder. I like these engines because of their retro styling. I mean, even though they were made in the '50s the body styles evoke '20s or '30s fire engine design. As real fire engines were maintained very well it probably wouldn't have been to unusual to see old timers still in service in the '50s. The toys shown here are rather basic. There's not a whole lot of detail molded in to them but I did try to capture the ax and fire extinguishers on the sides. The one we posted back in 2010 had white wheels, driver, and ladder, while last Friday's post had outriders. Enjoy! Opa Fritz and Oma Bettina
