About a year ago I started making nine of these vehicles; three sedans, three pickups, and three water trucks. They can all be found in the Great All-American Wooden Toy Book. I’ve previously made a sedan, and now I finished this pickup.
The original plans called for dowels for the radiator cap and headlights, and hole-sawn wheels and steering wheel.
I’ve had fun embellishing the parts on my lathe – wheels, steering wheel, radiator cap, headlamps and exhaust pipe.
Maple, Alder, Walnut, and Oak (and probably birch dowels).

Looks like a 1927 pick up my grandfather had. Well done.

Thanks for the kind words guys.
Crowie – I couldn’t do without the lathe. It’s just too much of an instant gratification tool….
