Radio Line wheelbarrow

skubbsAugust 14, 2006

I have a small tin wheelbarrow w/ hollow (I think) plastic wheel. It has 'RADIO LINE' imprinted in the bottom. Someone did a quick spraypaint job on it. The metal is sound. Is it collectible and worth refinishing? I can't find a thing about it anywhere. Thanks!

Radio flyer is making the retro line....I really don't think it's worth the trouble of re doing....
An antique toy not in original condition is rarely worth a lot....even if you do restore it.

Thank you. I see where Radio Flyer is making a small, useable wheelbarrow. Is this the retro you are referring to? Mine is different...all of tin, except for plastic wheel and handle ends. Not sturdy enough for serious use. I can't find anything that looks like it, or any info on 'Radio Line' on the web. Maybe not at all related to 'Radio Flyer'.

I also have one of these wheelbarrows. Mine also is made of all metal except for the tire which is rubber and the rubber handles. I am in the process of restoring mine and was also looking for some info about it. If anyboby knows anything please let me know where to look.

I restored my Radio-Line wheelbarrow several years ago. I received it as a gift when I was about 4-5 years old in 1960 or 1961. I recently picked up another one at a swap meet and am restoring it for an infant relative.
