    AMOS 'N ANDY MARX TIN WINDUP FRESH AIR TAXI.

    A classic toy , representing the radio and TV show of the same name that dominated the ratings from 1928 through the 60's until it was sold by CBS in '66. The toy , made by Marx from the early days of the radio series, shows Amos and Andy riding in their open air taxi. In exceptional condition and showing only minor scuffing to the wheels, this piece is original. The horseshoe hood ornament that is so often missing and the crank are intact, as well as the comic figures riding in the taxi. The back of the taxi is marked "Original and Genuine" and made by Marx. The taxi is approximately 8 inches long  and still runs. A super rare piece with lots of appeal to many different collectors groups.

    Please note: Due to the size and/or weight of this lot, additional shipping costs may apply.
