    If this is tin, I would gues $70 to $80 at least. I bought a lot my toys @ Woolworths so I love the subject...

    Well, here is what you have: This is actually a Marx toy from the '50s. This piece would be worth $80 on a really bad day at auction, and probably $200 on a great day.

    Oops! This one might not be the Marx item I thought at first. Marx made a very similar truck, but I don't see the Marx emblem on yours and the Marx manufactured truck should be more detailed. If this one is Marx (look for a stamp on the bottom) then I would stand by the previously stated price. If not, probably $40-$50ish.

    Ah hah, just as I suspected. Check out this one listed on Ebay - http://cgi.ebay.com/Woolworths-Tractor-Trailer-Semi-Truck-1950s-Marx-Toys-/360324604542?pt=Diecast_Vehicles&hash=item53e505227e .. I'd say yours is a '70s repro of the original Marx version. I saw it and got excited before I looked at the pics closely. Too bad. It's still a nice display piece though.
