Thanks guys, nice to see I'm not alone in loving this truck.
Wondering if anyone has info about Roney, little to see on the Google. They were built in Portland, I believe.
In operation under that name from 1952 to 1960. That's all I could find.

Looking at the condition of the brake pedal pad and the paint worn off the gear shift lever and the ebrake lever would lead me to believe that odometer has turned over. I just noticed the service stickers on the A pillar. Do they have mileage written on them?

Irregardless of the mileage it is a great original truck!

Hi Abe, it's possible the odo has turned over but I'm thinking not.
The wear and dirt suggest very low mileage. The extra wear on the controls could very easily be
due to generations of kids sitting in it, and dreaming.

True. A fire truck can have low miles but high hours and a lot of use.

Neighborhood kids, so yeah, extended family. The truck is a magnet for
kids of all ages!
Abe: I checked the stickers, last recorded mileage was from 1976. Shows 5463 miles at that time so I
believe the odometer is correct. As far as being ridden hard and put away wet, the overall condition says nope.
Babied and well kept example.
