I was excited to find this truck here. It is exactly the same as my 1961 truck and boat trailer. It was the only thing I wanted for Christmas when I was 3 and I still have it now that I'm 53. If you look close you can see the embossed Tonka "T" on the front bumper. That was removed in the 1958-1960 models, but they put it back in 1961.
