Sistrunk has a hobby of making Tonka trucks look new. He works on the scale outfits in his shop between jobs. It all started about five years ago, when he restored a toy truck and gave it to one of his grandsons.
Here is a collection of ways you can sell your toys and some thoughts around each method:. I am always asked this question, and honestly, I am happy and eager to buy any Tonka Toy trucks that are in the condition I have shown on my website. All of the trucks shown on my website are Original truck and not restored with the exception of the trucks shown on the restoration stories page.
This summer i decided to start restoring Tonka trucks, my son loves them and i enjoy quality metal toys so and making things myself so this is what i came up with. Its my first instructable so bear with me, and i didn't have many of my pics from the process so i am using what images i have to make this instructable. I will have a more detailed one this summer when i have a little more free time to tinker in the garage and grad school, work, wife, and child are not demanding my attention.

At first, the company was first known as Mound Metalcraft and it was intended to produce garden implements. The idea of manufacturing toys and marketing them came around after the company buildings former occupants failed in being able to market two metal toys they had produced.
The yellow Tonka Truck. Instantly recognizable by any child of decades past, that big metal beast would always make you popular around the sandbox. There were no blinking lights to dazzle, no noises to be heard unless you count the hard plastic wheels rolling on concreteeven the dumping action is completely manual.
As mentioned on the Home Page, there are times when I leave my Tonka pickups in original, as found condition. Oh, I'll keep a sandbox scratch or three and what I consider minimal play wear. And, if I'm ever lucky enough stumble across a decent first year issue, red stepside at a very reasonable price, I'll leave it as is. However, there are other times when stripping the pickup to bare metal and starting from scratch, is the only way to go.
