The first Mighty Tonka was introduced at Toy Fair in New York in early 1964. In fact, the new Mighty Dump was initially assigned to Tonka's Regular series.
Charles Groschen, at the time Tonka's Vice President of Manufacturing, is given credit as the creative mind behind the development of the Mighty Tonka Dump that in turn was the stepping stone for an entire Mighty series.
Mighty Tonka trucks are very collectible, especially the first generation Mightys, 1964-1972.
Beginning early in the 21st century, there seemed to have been an increased interest in what could arguably be referred to as Tonka's premier series, the Mighty Tonka.
Blame the increased interest on the internet, e Bay in particular.
