This model is the AHI Euclid Dump Truck in red and grey. It comes in its original acrylic display box which is marked "Shovel Dump Truck".

The model is a two piece casting with metal body and rear dumper, 48mm in length. It has been molded with the cab and chassis casting having representations of the grille, bumper, windows, and doors cast at the front, and the rear casting represents the rear dumper and cab safety cover. There is no glazing. The original wheels are grey plastic and attached to steel axles with a domed end and a crimped end. They are held to the body by means of short columns or cast areas through which the axles pass.

There is no base plate as such and this cast toy has no manufacturer's marks or country of origin cast on it.

I do not know exactly when this item was issued but it would have been during the 1950s and 1960s.
