    Here is a Dodge Airflow tanker truck that a friend of mine made using cast iron. He made the full length versions using the Texaco and Richfield logos. The one pictured here has been dissected to use in the "Safari set" toys. You can see the front half in the lower right side of the photo.

    More toy Dodge Airflow truck photos. My buddy made these cast iron toys a while ago. They are actually 1934s, but who can tell? They are about a foot long and very heavy. He even made the rubber tires! He made some with the TEXACO logo, but got a C&D letter from the execs telling him to stop.

    Just want to "MAHALO" everyone for all the photos & info! Like that Richfield Tanker - it would at least fit in the shop a little better! But I'd still prefer the real thing, eh!

    Just thought I'd bring this back up to inquire if there are any "new photos" out there?

    No man treats a motorcar as foolishly as he treats another human being. When the car will not go, he does not attribute its annoying behavior to sin, he does not say, "You are a wicked motorcar and I shall not give you any more petrol until you go." He attempts to find out what is wrong and set it right. Bertrand Russel

    Just fun to look at. How would a person go about getting the front clip and the drivetrain. Looks like it took at a hit on passenger side but photos may be deceiving. Thanks for posting

    This one is in the B.C. Vintage Truck Museum in Surrey, BC, Canada. It was part of a collection of trucks that was locked up in a warehouse in 1958 during a dispute with the Teamsters. The owner never opened the doors again. In the 70s, after the death of the owner, the doors were opened up and the vehicles were donated to the government for a museum. The Airflow truck was originally a Standard Oil tanker and is reportedly the only Airflow truck sold into Canada.

    That Canadian Airflow truck needs the back half of the one for sale! Then it would be streamlined all the way through.
