Yesterdays finds included an early MARX bus. Royal Bus Lines. My books show it to be fairly rare. It is also fairly rusty. lol

Next is a Wyandotte boat tailed racer with working headlights. They made these in three sizes, this is the 8 and 5/8 inch model. The working headlights used flashlight bulbs.

Next is what I am almost positive is a Wyandotte stake sided cab and trailer. Could not find this exact truck but the cab and stake design is almost certainly Wyandotte.

    Flash bulbs??!! You sure it's not a camera in disguise. That is intriguing. I have never heard of such a vehicle using flash bulbs. So it has a battery compartment, too? Incredible find!

    Flashlight bulbs. Like in a handheld lamp. Not the photographic type.
  9. vincentanton vincentanton, 2 years ago
    Where is the battery compartment? In the trunk, or underneath?
  10. gvgordon gvgordon, 2 years ago
    was underneath (is missing, , the 'brake" lever on the side actualy was a light switch.
