Have a biscuit truck that is missing the radiator and box portion of truck. Tires are fine. Truck shows wear with scratches but looks a lot like the nice one in the video. Any value to anyone?
There are a few biscuit trucks for sale right now. Have a look here, maybe you can find yours and a value.
