Arcade Car Transport / Carrier / Hauler 22" L, Rubbertires,1930s Great Hybrid :
the entire hauler, including cab and trailer, is 22" long, 2 1/16" wide, and 3 1/16" high.this wonderful Arcade CAR CARRIER / TRANSPORT / HAULER symbolizes a great era of American manufacturing and Progress.i believe that this is a hybrid collection: the scarce green truck cab is from the 1930s and was designed to haul a 2-level trailer or a 1933 "Century of Progress" people-mover bus. it is now being tasked to haul a longer, single deck trailer.i believe that some of the cars being transported in this collection are scarce.i believe that all vehicles are original, with the exception of the trailer, which looks like a reproduction, to me.the truck cab/tractor is stamped "arcade u.s.a." and "820 L" & "820 R" inside. i understand that this is one of the the largest cabs that Arcade manufactured. it appears to have been completely re-painted. i think the beautiful white rubber "arcade balloon" tires are nice replacements. one tire is starting to go "low on air".the PLYMOUTH WRECKER #1830, 1934, is 4 3/4" long. the original tires have cracking and several are loose & can slip off of the axle. incredibly, it still retains the original hook for towing.the PLYMOUTH STAKE TRUCK #1840, 1934, is 4 3/4" long. the white rubber tires are replacements.the PLYMOUTH COUPE #1340, 1934, is 4 1/2" long. she rolls well on rock-hard great-looking, probably original, tires.the PLYMOUTH SEDAN #1330, 1934, is 4 3/4" long. she rolls well on replacement white rubber tires.the trailer itself is 18 1/4" inches long and seems to me a very high-quality reproduction. the white rubber tires say "arcade balloon" & seem to be high-quality reproduction. they have gone a bit flat, though are still flexible.all autos have minor to noticeable chipping of their original paint, as seen in the photos, and all vehicles seem complete, to me.all autos have the separate, classy, originally nickeled grill and headlight insertsNot only is this beautiful early 1930s' collection a fine conversation piece, there's enough pieces here for many to participate in a bit of u.s history.i will ship upon receipt of payment verification.
