Hi everyone.  I'm just wondinering if anyone  might have some information on this tow truck I've had since I was a kid.  I'm not sure if it's from the 1980's or early '90's.  I tried searching the name all over the internet but nothing came up.  The bottom says it's made by a company called iLLCO - made in Thailand.

 

It's about 7" inches long and 6.5" inches high, but it can also pull the bottom up for some reason and it raises it's height (see pictures for best explanation).  I'm not sure why the makers allowed it to do this.  It's a wind up vehicle as well, just pull back and it goes off.  Thank you all in advance!

We should totally ask this guy for more info. http://www.ebay.com/itm/321735128928 :p

 

What I can find suggests that your truck is probably from the 80s. It could be from the 90s but Illco was bought out by Tyco in 1992, so it's a smaller release window. "Stretch Back Up N Go" yields no hits but clearly the raising of the wheels was the big gimmick of this truck's toyline.
