Coffin???

When I asked the seller for a clear photo of it, the only good place the guy had to show the condition was a demo coffin in his funeral parlor. Paul

Yes. I only spent an arm for it too but the gentleman through in a pair of early 50's Tootsie Toy 1/43 MACK L model tractors with a tanker trailer and a flatbed for gratis.

My guess would be a Smith-Miller too,better get out your wallet! the reproductions are getting more expensive than the originals! Paul,you mentioned Tootsietoys,you wouldn't happen to have a junk flatbed lying around would you? I'm restoring a B-Model with the Texaco tanker and an L-Model I'd like to pair up with the flatbed?................................................Mark

I know the one you want. I have only one with the power unit. I'll ask around at the next L.I. Antique Power Equipment meeting, there's a few collectors there who have parts.
