    Coo Coo Car with Box (Marx, circa 1920s). From the 1920s through the 1950s, the Louis Marx Toy Company produced an innovative series of vehicles known variously as Crazy Cars, Eccentric Cars, Funny Cars, Whoopee Cars, Dipsy Cars, Coo Coo Cars, Tricky Autos and Back and Forth Cars. They were called those names because of the crazy, eccentric, cuckoo, tricky movements they made, whirling around in unpredictable patterns, to the delight of the children watching them. This 8" long lithographed tin wind-up Coo Coo Car, has the action of a bucking bronco with a butler like figure at the wheel, who stands up and falls back down in his seat. The wind up movement sends the jalopy into erratic spins. Both the box (with all flaps) and the car are in exceptional condition. Needless to say, the car is in working condition. From the Larry Jacobs Collection.
