MARX TOYS MCCARTHY & SNERD WELL MOW YOU DOWN TIN LITHO WIND UP CAR NEAR MINT. As always, I try to offer you the most unique and interesting antique toys that I can find. So here is just such an item. This large and impressive 16 long tin litho wind-up by the Louis Marx & Co. Body of car has great design featuring different geometric patterns.
Separate tin litho Charlie McCarthy and Mortimer Snerd heads stick out of the roof. Each door bears their names as well as "Private Car" title while top of windshield frame reads Sunshine Top. Car is designed w/pair of protruding bumpers, front is complete w/rubber bumper guard. Comes w/replaced key, toy works and travels forward until front bumper strikes an object and this causes vehicle to reverse direction, until rear bumper is struck.
All the while both heads spin. Toy has very few small scattered paint nicks/scratches but overall appearance remains extremely glossy w/deep rich color. Price constitutes the rarity of this item plus the condition. Which most people know, is one of the important things collectors require.
