VERY CLEAN INTERESTING MARBLED VERSION
You are looking at an interesting American Flyer passenger car from 1949-52. This car is complete and clean. Put it behind that Northern ("Challenger") or the Hudson. What a train! These Heavyweights always look great. This is the combination, aka combine, part baggae, part passenger.
Most interestingly, this car has a marbled shell. It is the unpainted tuscan (really more of a dark maroon) shell that has some of that marblized pattern very visible.
There are a few variations of this car, and this one is
- Tuscan (vs. Red or Green)
- unpainted plastic shell (vs. painted red or green)
- link coupler, black weight
- SERIF printing (versus block)
We do have two other cars--652 and 654-- from this set listed spearately right now if you are quick enough. We listed separately due to slight condition variations and customer request.
The 653 Pullman Combination
CONDITION: Quite clean. See description for details. Nice printing but lettering is lighter, perhaps faded, and there is a rub in the numbering on one side. Complete trucks and couplers, but they are a little dirty--you will want to clean. Paint loss on doors, pictured. Some scratches visible in body but they are not too distracting. Some oxidation on underside axles.
