We picked up several 1930s pressed steel trucks a few months ago. I have been meaning to put them on the blog because they are so cool! BUT I kept finding other things to do.
|Marx Delivery Truck c1930s|
|Schuco Tow Truck c1930s|
The two we have left are sit 'n' ride trucks. Both are from the 1930s and in very good condition, although someone re-painted the top of the cabs a long time ago. The Delivery Truck was made by Marx. It still has its original decals and the steering and wheels work just fine. The Tow Truck looks like a Schuco. Again, the steering and wheels work well. This one has battery operated headlights! The wiring is shot, but otherwise it could be made to work. Both of these are priced at $195.00.
When we got these I remembered this photo of me, from way back in 1946 or so, sitting on a truck. It did not seem to matter to me that it was missing the back wheels and was not a sit-down toy. So what! I was having fun!
