1965 Dump Truckers #979
Complete -Restored - Very Good Condition

Vintage Fisher Price Dump Truckers - Complete

This is the #979 Dump Truckers set made by Fisher Price in 1967-1970.  Just a note (in case you're interested) - The Dump Truckers was the first Fisher Price toy ever made with the masonite base.

This set is in very good played with condition.  I did do some restoration on it consisting of replacing 4 of the original lithos with professionally made reproductions.  These 4 replacements are:

 Dump Truckers litho on the front
 Dump Station litho on the top
Triangular Dump Station (with arrow) litho on the side near the slide
Gas Pump litho just below the slide

All the reproduction lithos are in perfect condition of course.  Now on to the rest of the set:

It looks really good for a toy that is almost 50 years old.  There are no breaks or cracks in the plastic.  The masonite base is complete with no damaged corners.  I did find a few small sratches and (very) light staining on the green base litho.  However, this damage is so much less than is usually found on the Dump Truckers base, that I decided to leave it as it is.  The rest of the lithos are in very good shape. but they are not perfect.  Who is after 50 years?  Still, this is one of the best examples of this toy that I've seen in a long time.

All the accessories are included.  You will get 3 dump trucks which fit neatly in place just as they should.  Also included are 3 solid wood balls which can be "dumped" from the station into the trucks.  Finally you will receive 3 all wood straight sided blue boys which are original to this set as well.  These show some minor face paint wear and it appears that someone (not me) has tried to touch them up a bit.  They are  still in remarkably good condition for their age.

As with all my toys, this set has been carefully cleaned before listing.
