Glolight Corporation Toys (10 Views) M60 Home     Toy Gallery

This photo is a front quarter view. The military driver is in seat. The dozer body is dark red and in good condition, the exhaust stack is missing, the blade is missing most of its black paint and is rusty, but the Glolite decal is very good. The metal blade is in very good shape. This view is of the left side. The tips of the wooden axles can be seen where they come through the dozer tracks, and the wire hook in the back can be seen.
This photo and the next are views of the dozer's underside. This dozer has wooden axles and large wooden rollers. Amidships on either side bosses have been cast. From this angle it can be seen that the dozer is made of thick and sturdy material, probably a rubber composite. This is the underside of one of the dozers with the noise-maker. The bosses mentioned previously have been channeled so that a rectangle of wood slides into them. attached to it is a thin strip of metal which is long enough to reach the bottom of the channels. As this wheel passes beneath the strip, it clicks loudly.I expect kids really liked it. Parents? Probably not so much.
This is a photo of the three drivers for Glolite toys. On the left is a farmer figure with very poor paint for his yellow hat and red kerchief. The rest of the paint has all worn away from this fellow, but another farmer driver has blue apparel.. Next to the farmer is an Army driver who is painted khaki from helmet down, leaving only the beige colored face. The paint is excellent. Last comes another farmer, this one identical to the dozer driver but made so that he will not fit the dozer, only the Jeep. His clothing is like the first, but his paint remains very good. This photo is a frontal view of the three drivers, and shows how the steering wheel missing from the vehicle castings actually is part of the drivers' castings, looking somewhat like a large dinner plate in their laps. This photo is a rear view of all three. The dozer farmer has a smaller groove in his body than the other two. The army driver has a much larger groove. The grooves allow the drivers to be firmly inserted between matching ridges in the dozer's driver area. The dozer farmer and the Army driver are interchangeable between the farm dozer and the green Army version, which I have yet to acquire. The Jeep driver will not fit either dozer.
This photo shows more clearly the differences between the three drivers' seating designs. The Jeep driver is more rounded where his bottom is, and his legs are rather like a round barrel, not so distinctly legs as are the others'. Indeed, the dozer farmer and the Army driver hardly have legs at all but are somewhat shortened and stubby in that area. A large composition tractor offered circa 1945. This tractor was offered with Glolite toys in a catalog but the maker may not be Glolite. It looks like it might be made of pressed sawdust, and it has aged remarkably well -- a favorite of mine!
The Glolite dozer with the composition tractor. The tractor is much larger. This photo shows the much larger tractor with an Auburn 1940 Sedan and a Sun Supercharged coupe.
