As a result, we've had to substitute a slightly different model. It's the same quality truck you ordered... Made by the Tonka people, a leading producer of quality toy trucks.
We're sorry we couldn't give you the exact truck you ordered. We believe you will find this a satisfactory substitute. The mailing (some deterioration) label reads Green Giant Company Box 700 Le Sueur." It is addressed to "R Rose 112 Laidlaw Ave. The Green Giant label is dated 12/7/61. This is at the tail end of the 1961 model year... No wonder they ran out. 1962 Tonkas of course are changed to the generic front ends. This is a prize that most Tonka collectors have never seen. Also enclosed is a "Green Giant Farm Truck coupon". What a fabulous Tonka find!
