In response to Woodsy's comment on my previous Joe 90 Konami photos, here's a supplementary post on the Explosives Truck as seen principally in the episode, Colonel McClaine .

The Explosives truck, the precursor to the Shado Mobile was designed by Mike Trim, and was used in the story to transport the highly unstable explosive U114 , over 200 miles of dangerous terrain.
Above, Mike Trim's original design drawing, and below David Sisson's scatchbuilt model of Truck 61 which was the one driven by Joe in the episode.
The Truck did turn up in two other Joe 90 episodes. Here it is 'Breakout', sporting a red paint job.
It also appeared briefly in ' The Race', painted in khaki.
It also made another brief appearance in The Secret Service episode, 'School for Spies'.
According to David Sisson's article on the Big Rat website, although it's numbered 61, it's actually Truck 59 re-numbered, as it was used by the second SFX unit during filming of Colonel McClaine to complete the schedule on time.
Apart from the Konami toy there were also kits produced by Tamiya. Although it's generally referred to as the Explosives Truck, or Truck in the episode , the kit is titled U59 'Wild Cat'.
Tamiya also did a model of the U87 from the Joe 90 episode , 'The Race', which was titled U87 'Stronger'.
Woodsy suggested Truck 59 would make a good die-cast toy, well he's right about that, although sadly that's not happened. There is a die-cast model that's similar looking to Truck 59, called the K2004 Rocket Striker, which is part of the Matchbox 2000 range which appeared in 1977.
