  • During the late 1980s, they had some problems with the chrome process and some of the trucks came out with a gold tone to them. This was quickly caught and corrected and only a few of these were distributed making them very hard to find.
  • In a rare instance when some trucks are produced mistakes are made such as a part not being cast in the white color or chromed. This truck is one of those mistakes where on the top of the cab the part was not cast in white and left in the original plastic color..
