    Description

    Toy Town Express Van Truck Toy in Original Box (Louis Marx and Company, 1953). This wonderful Toy Town Express Van Truck toy, with extremely sharp graphics, is a pressed lithographed metal and plastic hauling truck. The hard red plastic cab and bed with a colorful metal container on the back has detailed metal wheels and axles. Signage is superb, and the Louis Marx symbol appears in the Service Call section. The license plate above the back reads "497 - 323/19 W. VA 53." The truck is as issued; it was not made with doors on the back. The truck is in its original box, which is nicely illustrated on all sides. It's complete and intact with all inner and outer flaps. The box measures 12" x 6.5" x 4.5".
    The toy has small scratches and small spots of wear in the paint but absolutely no significant defacement or sign of wear. The box has light edge wear, minor surface rubbing and light creasing in the flaps; the top flap on one end is complete and included yet it is split along the top from the main section of the box. Fine+ condition on box and toy.
