Here's something you don't see every day - A vintage set made in the days when toys were built to last.  Nylint made model vehicles from pressed steel from 1946 - 2001.  Many were replicas of real vehicles and construction equipment, but some, like this hard to find set, were Nylint originals, not made to look like a particular real-world vehicle.  This Nylint Farms set includes a stake-bed truck and detachable open-top horse trailer.  While records are sketchy, we believe this set to have been produced in the early 1970s.  It originally came with a bull, a cow, a calf, a mare and a foal. 

 This set comes with a bonus mare and foal that got picked up somewhere along the way!  The white paint is wearing off in places on this set and the steel, now exposed to air, is showing rust.  It has been played with, but gently, so there may be some small marks and rubs on he animals and vehicles, but nothing serious.  The cattle show minor to moderate yellowing, but everyone is intact and they make a great vintage display. 

This is a very hard-to-find set with the sloping windshield and Nylint Farms sticker on the trailer intact. Be aware that being steel, it is fairly heavy, so shipping costs will be commensurate with the weight.

 

Size:  Horses are about the same size as Hartland 7" Arabians.  Full set with trailer attached as shown, is around 18" long.
