Product Description

"Whoopee Car" made by Louis Marx & Company. Marx' was a toy company which did business in the United States between 1919 and 1978. Marx's toys were sold at five and dime stores and also higher end retailers such as Sears and Montgomery Ward. This vintage wind-up toy is made of tin and is 7 1/2 inches long and 3 inches wide. There are Princeton and Yale pennants lithographed onto the rear wheels. The trunk on the rear has college decals for an eclectic group of colleges: CCNY, Vassar, UVA, Univ of Wisconsin and Kansas. The driver is wearing a fur coat, as are the two art deco ladies sitting on the trunk at rear. The top of the windshield says "Whoopee" as does a sticker on the trunk. Two art deco style ladies are sitting on the trunk wearing fur coats. Often, given the fragile nature of the ladies they are not present. There is some surface rust on the wheels and on the right side of the drivers face, otherwise in good condition. The wind-up mechanism still works and the car still rides. A great vintage collectible, makes a great display piece.
