Vintage Marx Wind Up Tin Litho Toy Car Funny Flivver 1926 - NICE-COMPLETE-WORKS. Vintage Marx Wind Up Tin Litho Toy Car Funny Flivver.
"SEE PICTURES FOR MORE DETAILS". The Funny Flivver is one of the earliest, if not the first, eccentric car. The driver of the black car is dressed in a yellow jacket with orange-red trim, a white shirt, and yellow hat with red trim.
The black and white wheels have lithographed spokes; a suitcase sits on the running board and displays the names of various cities. White lettering all over the car includes Dont Bring Lulu, My Lizzie Of The Valley, Sos Your Old Man, and Leap Year Girls Leapin. The radiator reads Funny Flivver.
As shown in the 1926 Sears Fall/Winter catalog, 4 wheels, No Breaks (sic) Louis Marx & Co. A, the Marx logo, Pats Pendg, and the license number X07-11 are on back of the car. Although the Funny Flivver resembles the later eccentric cars, it differs in several ways.
For example, the large rear wheels are smaller than those on the later cars. The steering wheel post is longer, requiring the driver to sit further back.
However, the most noticeable thing about the Funny Flivver, as shown in the 1926 Sears Fall/Winter catalog, is that is has no trunk. 43 cents, the toy is advertised in the catalog under the heading, It travels in every direction, running right or left and then suddenly backs up, only to shoot forward again in some freakish way.
The head of its comical looking driver keeps turning in different directions with a puzzled look on his face. A dog (colored brown, black and white) sits on the running board.
