Summary Good

Assessor Jordan Beres

Notes The truck is in fairly good condition with good coloring. The only problem that it has is that it has been apparently glued together towards the front. It is also quite dusty. One of the sides only has one chain instead of two. The cream colored plastic piece in the back of the truck is also quite dirty.
