Overall Very Good condition for this RARE vintage WORKING Buddy L pressed steel Steam Shovel. Original, except for strings, the paint has scratches and dings, but still retains a rich red color on the roof and nice black color on the chassis and boom. Playwear and signs of age with very little to no rust present. Boom operates as it should, but the tip of the scoop door release just works and may need adjustment with the string as I got it close, I think.Please see pictures for details as they are the best description. Measures about 20-1/2" long at rest and about 26" long with boom extended. Stands about 13-1/2 tall at fixed boom. It's about 7 wide at roof. This is a very desirable, very Hard to Find Buddy L toy, especially in working condition. It is not the prettiest, but has honest playwear and patina. Don't miss this one.
