You're looking at a VINTAGE LATE 1950's PLASTIMARX (MEXICAN MARX) FIRE CHIEF CAR #17 TIN LITHO WIND-UP W/SIREN SOUND & LIGHT. The car was made at Mexico around the early 1960's under Louis Marx Co, license.
It's in pre-owned condition. With signs of wear as scratches, stains, tiny dents, paint chips, rust spots and dust. It shows some scratches, paint chips, stains, rust spots and light dust all around. The light bulb is in working order, I think it was repainted; the yellow plastic area that holds the light bulb in place shows a tiny missing area.
It has a rare yellow color. It comes marked with the No. All the lettering is in spanish language. It shows signs of wear all around its front and down body areas, as scratches, paint chips, stains, tiny dents, rust spots and dust. Its battery compartment shows scratches, stains, and rust stained areas and is missing the upper wire that holds the battery in, although it stays in place.
It has the wind up key attached to its left middle area, which shows some stains, scratches and rust spots. It has one wood back wheel which shows signs of wear as scratches and paint loss, and three rubber wheels, they show some signs of wear.It's in working condition, when you put a "D" cell battery (not included) in its compartment and you wind it up and move the lever to the on position it starts running forward as the light flashes and it makes a siren sound.
