1962 ... 'Overland Train'

... just as mind-boggling and scary looking as more deadly Cold-War devices is this gigantic all-terrain cargo vehicle. As the vast reaches of the Arctic became the strategic playground for airbases and radar installations alternative methods for hauling cargo were researched and developed. One of these was the TC-497 Overland Train-MkII. 

What kid could resist daydreams of driving this Tonka Truck thru the icy wilderness or glowing post-apocalyptic landscape!
