    Do you have a photo you could post? I could check a couple of my riding toy collector books to see if a match can be found.

    Sulley, I see a very similar Radio Flyer on a 1954 catalog page. This could very well be the same wagon only sold through Western Auto under their brand. I've seen those smooth hub caps sold on ebay recently and wondered what wagon they went to. So you answered a question for me at the same time!

    We picked this up at a yard sale a few years ago. Does anyone have any idea what year it is or what it might be worth?

    It doesn't look like the original poster ever posted pictures, but I have what I am sure is a Western Flyer wooden wagon. (The panels and the caps on the wheels are all in the style of Western Flyer, not Radio Flyer.) However, there isn't any marking anywhere as to brand and it appears that the sides are original. Here are some photos. Any ideas of age or value?
