Today we are happy to offer for sale an all original 1930’s depression era Marx “Mortimer Snerd” wind-up crazy car! This wonderful antique toy features world beloved ventriloquist character Mortimer Snerd, one of Edgar Bergen’s most popular characters. This tin litho wind-up car was made by Louis Marx and Company, which was in business from 1919 until 1980. The company created some of the most popular and collectible toys up until the late mid 20th century. This 1939 lithographed tinplate toy features Mortimer Snerd driving a multi-color 1930’s car. All original pieces intact. The toy is in good antique condition, with minor wear and patina commensurate with age and type of use. There is minor loss to finish. The wheels are slightly wobbly, and the wind-up mechanism needs repair. Sold as is but no doubt an easy and quick fix for those who know Marx toys. This wonderful crazy car will make a great addition to any fine Marx collection! Fresh to the market!
