This is the Goodee Ford Oil Tanker Truck (1953) issued in the mid 1950s in red.
This version of the model is a one piece, crude casting based on a truck with simplistic detail such as bumpers, lights, body lines and trim, tank and tank caps cast into the metal. There is no glazing or base to the model. On the under-side the model carries the legend "Made in U.S.A" cast on two lines under the cab roof area and the "Goodee" trademark(?) under the bonnet. The flat end axles pass through the black, solid rubber wheels and are pinch-clamped to mounts on the body casting.
