    Description

    Silver Finish Electric Lighted Car Chrome-Finish Toy in Original Box (Louis Marx and Company, c. 1950s). This is the truly splendid Electric Lighted Car with "Deluxe Silver Finish" wind-up automobile toy made by Marx in the 1950s. It is in working order and in the original illustrated box with all flaps and shiny silver-blue ink on the car image and on some of the lettering. The car exterior has an ultra-high-gloss silver finish made of flexible plastic; the under-carriage is made of metal and can be removed to insert battery and headlight bulbs. The wheels are made of hard black rubber. Toy dimensions are 10" x 4" x 3"; box dimensions are 10.25" x 4.75" x 3".
    A "D" battery and new headlight bulbs were installed and tested using the switch that is in the front passenger-side window. One of the headlights worked, while the other flickered on and off. It is very likely that the contacts in the under-carriage need to be cleaned or slightly adjusted. New bulbs are included. The wind-up motor is in fine working order.
    This toy is in very nice condition; there is minor surface rubbing and scratching, and very small bits of the finish are missing from the bottom front edge. The box is complete and has darkened only a bit with age; there are a few creases and small tears. Box condition is Fine, while the toy condition is Fine+.
