Ford F-350 Tonka “T-Rex” Build

There are few names more iconic to auto enthusiasts than Tonka. My Tonka still sits in the basement of my parents house, patches of yellow show through the rust covered dumper. The wheels roll somewhat evenly, and probably have a couple more scooter trips left in them. Regardless, I’m not the only person who has spent a lot of time with Tonka in the dirt. Now my childhood is coming to life with this yellow montser.

Known as the Tonka T-Rex, this Ford F-350 Super Duty was built by Funrise Toys, which plans to release a toy version by fall ’14.
