I've had a blue one pass through the MFR garage at one point. This one came from the post man in Chi Town know as @Pegers. No wood grain but I think it is the same color of Ford Blue. IIRC the metal bases were later in the casting production runs with plastic ones appearing first and then going back to plastic in even later runs. Fitted with a black steering in the white interior and narrow tires. The metal hitch has also survived some extensive play wear.
