Allied Auto Hauler

The fleet of small plastic auto hauler's has grown by one with the addition of this nifty Allied Auto Carrier from the early 1950s. With light blue tractor, red trailer, and yellow, green and blue cars this is certainly a colorful addition. Measuring 9 1/2" (24.13cm) L x 1 3/4" (4.44cm) W x 1 3/4" (1.44c m) H it has an operating ramp for the lower deck - upper deck cars are on their own WATCH OUT BELOW :-) All the sedans are marked 'BV4872' on the rear license plate. It's funny but one of the yellow cars is just a pinch taller than the rest and therefore won't fit in the lower deck without a struggle. Enjoy! Opa Fritz and Oma Bettina

You'll notice the back car on the lower deck does not fit well. Apparently that's the way this was designed because photos in Bill Hanlon's "DIMESTORE DREAMS Plastic Toys of the '40s & '50s" bear this out as well

Let's unload these to our fantasy car dealership

Lower deck unloading - null problemo

Upper deck - OOPS!

Well, looks like they're none the worse for wear!
