Buddy “L" Tug Boat 3000
This Buddy ‘L” Model appeals to boys because it not only looks like a big boat but it actually runs like one.
OPERATION: Air is pumped into a large, separate air tank, built into the hull of the boat, with an ordinary bicycle pump—when this air is released it operates an ingenious air motor, directly connected to the tank, and this rotates the brass, three-blade type propeller and sends the craft through the water. The speed is governed by a regulating valve on the stern deck and direction of travel is controlled by special steering device which locks the rudder in any position desired.
Buddy  L Coach Number 208
This model is considered by many as the finest plaything ever produced. It embodies all the beautiful lines, harmony of coloring and distinctive design to be found in the finest coaches operating on the highways. The chassis is strong and rugged with channel type frame - drop forged spindles - high carbon steel axels - 3" aluminum front wheels and heavy duty type dual rear wheels. Steering or guiding is accomplished by simply turning the spare wheels forward or backward and can be done while the child rides on top. The body is made of 20 gauge steel with two hinged entrance doors, at extreme front and is fitted with two rows of steel coach chairs. It is perfect in every detail with double bar bumper - large radiator, fitted heat meter - gracefully curved fenders - stream line hood - service type lights - sunshade - signal lights ect. Finished with two coats, baked on, brilliant blue gray enamel, striped in deep red and trimmed in
