A SCARCE ONE!
A good looking speciman in Christmas Colors.
You are looking at a scarce Louis Marx flat car with a red and green metal STAKE truck on board. This flat is nown to come with two loads: either the dump truck or this stake truck. The dump truck is more numerous; this stake truck is a neat one to grab. Within each of those, there are many color variations. This truck has a red truck and green stake bed. This one came out around 1937 and was available prewar.
If you are a serious Marx collector, you know there were quite a few different variations of this car--types of flat, couplers, and colors of truck. Make sure you have them all!
- Marx number 562
- Three rail O / 027
- 6" tinplate flat car
- Red truck cab, green stake bed
- Tan and slot couplers
- Metal wheels on flat
- Wood wheels on truck
CONDITION: Original. Flat car has significant scratches on the top. The truck is in really nice shape with some playwear obvious in the close up pictures. All four wooden wheels are in good shape.
