Marx Bumper Car Tin Windup in Red for Sale
Marx Bumper Car tin windup in Red for sale
This Red streamlined car is all things good in large scale American toys. Our Marx toy is a pressed steel toy around 14″ in length (very big) and then a windup toy. Bumpers and action have a bit of a mystery stop start, reverse action. Hit the front bumper and the car reverses.
Condition is well used and good original. The bumpers appear to be replacements. Chrome has aging on it and tarnish with corrosion. The driver’s roof has ripples in it from play wear. All this said, it is big and looks great in a collection.
Key included. Windup works well but power is sluggish; that said we didn’t try to wind it extra tight.
