Pyro Army Stakebed Truck Update

Well, I totally have been forgetting to consult my best reference book on these various Army vehicles being posted here of late and have a couple of updates. In PLASTIC TOYS Dimestore Dreams of the '40s and '50s by Bill Hanlon the Pyro vehicles posted here are identified as being made in the early 1950s but he lists no part numbers for them. In addition he lists them all as 'olive drab' whereas I see them as 'olive green'. Unless they've discolored, they definitely look more on the greenish side than the brown side of the color spectrum. And just like the smaller series of Pyro Army vehicles we posted earlier this year and part of last year, many of the trucks are simply listed as "U.S. Army Service Truck" like this stakebed we just featured a few days ago. So, if you're keeping track of details like this I hope this helps. Enjoy! Opa Fritz and Oma Bettina
