The Tonka Truck of all Tonkas
Ford recently decked out a truck as a Tonka, every kids dream. Really even if you played with barbies, you probably wanted a Tonka Truck. They’re big, yellow and just generally awesome. Built on the new 2016 Ford F-650/F-750, it’s the ultimate Tonka Truck for kids and adults.
The Tonka version of the Commercial truck is, of course, painted that signature Tonka yellow and is stamped with Tonka mighty diesel and getting dirty since 1947. It is every little kids dream to get behind the wheel of a real Tonka and now a few adults might just be fulfilling those dreams when they decide to get this vehicle for their next worksite. Yeah that’s right, you can actually get the truck, just not yellow, or with Tonka on the side.
It will still grab the attention of everyone working or even just passing by. You could be building an outhouse with it and people would line up to see the truck that Tonka helped to build getting to work. Despite the lack of the recognizable yellow, drivers will notice that the truck comes with the custom grille, which is framed by the hallmark Ford nostrils. They help improve airflow for better cooling.
You can also haul up to 17,000 lbs of fun. So if you want to build a whole castle in your backyard or a new condo building, you can get it done. Really whatever your heart desires is possible with the Ford F-650 and F-750. This is all made possible thanks to the strong design and the 6.7 Power Stroke V8 turbo diesel, which can create as much power as 330 horsepower and 725 lb-ft. of torque. That’s enough power to accomplish any childhood dreams the truck hasn’t already completed by simply existing.
Though we know we all want one, we do recommend that you purchase one for more reasons than just riding around in. If you have a friend in construction, maybe you can convince them to buy one and let you take it for a spin every now and then. Otherwise you might just have to enjoy the pictures like the rest of us. Besides, you can’t actually get the Tonka version, but we wonder who will get to keep it.
