Marx Plastic Battery Operated No. 3309 “Amphibious Military Jeep” in Box
We have for you another great find a No. 3309 battery-operated “Amphibious Military Jeep” in box that was manufactured in Hong Kong by Louis Marx & Company of New York City, New York.
This working battery-operated amphibious military Jeep goes forward and reverse when the life preserver switch is turned to either position. We tested it and found it to be working; however, you do need to put a penny under the contact to get it to fit snuggly to the battery. The battery compartment is clean and free of corrosion. The rubber tires are still intact, but as per usual with toys of this age, they may have discolored, petrified, warped, and/or cracked. We did not notice any issues. The box is in great condition.
This piece is in great all original condition with no breaks, restorations, repairs, or touch-ups. This piece shows the usual patina, fading, dust, chips, scuffs, surface rust, scratches, missing accessories, and wear that are to be expected from age and display. It is approximately 9” L. We invite you to view the photos to further determine quality and condition.
