    Marx Company ~the "Old Jalopy" from the late 1920s & 30s.
    Reference from the Sears catalog of the 1920s;
    Made of stamped sheet metal, had a wind-up mechanism.
    Measures : 7" long x 4" wide x 4" high.
    Based on Ford Model T (or Tin Lizzie).
    Body has graffiti "phrases" that were in style for that time period.
    Marx made several variations of the Tin Lizzie:" Limping Lizzie", Campus Express, and the one that I own, "Old Jalopy".
    The front hood & engine gear was missing. But I love the paint
    & body. I paid $10.
    I recently found a working gear that fits.
    Now to locate a shop that "fixes" tin autos !
