Interplanetary Express by Tru-Scale
Technically not a Department Store truck, but, nonetheless, when you have to move merchandise over
LONG distances you call Interplanetary Express. By the decals on this truck you could say Tru-Scale
dreamed big. Tru-Scale also included some unique and innovative features on this truck as shown below.
This rear door opening mechanism is like no other truck. The door pivots on arms that lift it up and into
the truck's cargo area. This example has a sagging right side where the spot welds separated.
Another unique feature is the ability of the front
wheels to steer by applying pressure to the cab.
A clever lever. This neat spring-loaded fifth-wheel
kingpin lever keeps the trailer locked in position.
