This wooden toy model stake bed truck was built by George C. Russell. Mr. Russell worked for Roger Penske’s racing organization. In his spare time, he enjoyed making toys from wood for his children. After they grew up and no longer had any interest in them, he sold the toys to a fellow worker, John McGinley, who donated them to our museum. Included is this wooden stake bed truck which is painted in vibrant green, red and yellow colors. A US quarter is shown in the photo for scale reference.
