I'm getting lucky at the local flea market the past few weekends, I've been getting things consistently (I usually come home empty handed). This came to me just today (what a happy Easter!) and I'm glad to have such a complete example. Usually the headlights or grille are lost, not to mention the little wooden plug that serves as the gas cap.
Marx made several versions of these (as one might expect from a big, long running company), and were also used in/on the car transporter models of the same era. Really sleek design too, can't go wrong with that!
6" long, pressed steel body and fixtures. The wheels and gas cap are wood.
