Description

This lithographed tin jalopy was manufactured by Louis Marx and Company in the 1930's. It has a clockwork mechanism with spring action that can be activated with a metal key. The jalopy is decorated with comical sayings. The driver moves back and forth as the lopsided wheels imitate the movement of an old jalopy.
