The 1991 National Toy Truck 'N Construction Show model was a Midwest/John Deere Excavator produced by Ertl in 1/64 scale. Quantity produced: 4,500.
The neatest thing about this truck, for TT&C, is that it will be the same company, Midwest Specialized Transportation, Inc., that was chosen for our first Toy Truck ‘N Contraction Show model, which was made by Ertl. We chose that model then because Claire Scheibe’s cousin drove for the company and had an “in” with the then president, Allen Koenig. Through the years we’ve met Al several times and recently we found a signed serial numbered truck from a special series we ran for Al’s company. That will find a place in our museum.
The future 2016 model - Midwest Specialized Transportation truck for the National Toy Truck 'N Construction Show model will be produced in 1/64 scale. Quantity produced: 2,100.
