MARX Tin Wind Up Fire House With Friction Chief's Car 8.5" Excellent Cond W/Box

PLEASE READCOMPLETE DESCRIPTION CAREFULLY AND VIEW PHOTOS CLOSELY BEFORE offerDING:

For your perusal is this 8.5" long tin wind up powered Volunteer Fire Department building and fire chief's car made by MARX Toys of the USA in the early 1950's. Called the Automatic Fire House Complete With Friction Fire Chief Car, the set is clean as new and inexcellent originalcondition with all parts intact including gorgeous factory box with protective insert. The toy is in perfect working order as well.This piece has been in my collection for over 25 years. It has never been seen on before and never passed around the toy shows. I bought it from the original owner and always had it carefully displayed in a dust free cabinet.The colors are all bright and vibrant. There are no dents or dings and only a couple minor scuffs are all that mar the otherwise pristine finish of both the station house and sedan. Plastic signage on roof and barn style doors do exhibit some typical warpage. It does nothing to take away from the wonderful charm of the toy and does not hinder the fabulous operation. When car is inserted into the garage, it is held in place by a spring. Once handle is turned briskly the siren will sound and when handle is stopped suddenly the doors will open and car will race out onto the floor with siren blaring. This is play value at it's best. I love this toy and hate to part with it but now it's someone else's turn to enjoy it. The command car has beautiful litho detail and instruction sticker is still intact on the roof. Rear drive tires are rubber while front tires are wood. All are flawless with no cracks, breaks or flat spots. Friction motor runs long, strong and smooth with great siren sound. The station house has magnificent litho scenes showing an open cab American La France pumper truck being washed on one side, firemen checking extinguishers and equipment on the other, and officers doing training on the back. Instructions are clearly lithoed on the base. Factory box is complete with all flaps and original protective insert. It is very colorful showing outstanding graphics. Box is void of any stains, fading or offending odors. One end has moderate wear with some correct cardboard color paper back tape repair to inside flaps. Another fantastic vintagesurvivor toywith a low, lowstarting offer and ........as always.

Shipping charges are fixed as is shipping method.A slight handling charge is built in to cover shipping room costs and help. I do not skimp on packing. I am a collector as well as a dealer, and many times have been chagrined to open a box and find a rare vintage toy broken en route. Not due to postal misuse, but bypoor and insensitivewrapping. You will not receive toys packed like this from me. All my items are thoughtfullyand carefully packed as though I would be mailing them to myself. Prices are set by size and weight.USPS Priority Mail dimensional weight rates will now apply for certain large packages shipped to select zones within the U.S. Priority Mail can be very expensive with an oversize package, as many of my toys require, thereforefor those larger items I use Parcel Post which is just as safe and almost as fast.

Please email any concerns before leaving response, and I will do my best to accommodate you.
