Are antique Tonka trucks worth anything?



Antique Tonka trucks range in value from about $125 to more than $1,000, according to Real Pricing Guides. The vintage toys include model cars, trucks and boats manufactured from the late 1940s through the 1960s. As of 2014, eBay lists models including a rare 1954 StarKist Tuna truck for $385.

Mound Metalcraft began making metal toys soon after its founding in 1946. In 1955, the company changed its name to Tonka Toys. The company introduced the popular "Mighty" line of model construction vehicles in 1964. Although the metal trucks earned a reputation for toughness, plastic began to replace steel in the toys' construction in the 1980s. Hasbro purchased the Tonka company in 1987.
