1986 Ford Stake Bed Truck

While hunting on eBay for all the first-release Hot Wheels from 1979, I often get distracted. This Ford Stake Bed Truck from 1986 is one of those distractions. I think I like it most because it reminds me a lot of the Matchbox Dodge Cattle Truck from my childhood collection, but it didn’t hurt at all that I won the auction for only 1 cent.

The Ford Stake Bed Truck was first released in 1983 and has appeared in quite a few variations over the years. It also has been produced in different configurations as the Ford Dump Truck, Rig Wrecker, and Semi Fast II.
