Vintage 1940's Marx E12 Fighting Tank Tin Litho Wind Up Toy. This great vintage wind up toy was made by Marx in the late 1940's or early 1950's. Measuring a little over 10" long, this fantastic vintage toy tank is the twin gun version, which is one of the harder versions to find of the many different "fighting tanks Marx made over the years. It has some great graphics check out the driver on the front!
And the colors are bright and vibrant. The wind up motor is in working condition, although it sometimes needs a nudge to get started its 75+ years old! And the rubber treads are complete and in good condition. The "sparking" guns on the side have the original covers but are missing the flints.The brake lever is intact and working. It does have some wear and minor paint loss as well as some fading to the turret, but it is in otherwise good condition. There is a couple price stamps on the toy (pictured) which along with the lack of a Marx logo, would suggest this was a private label made by Marx for a toy store. We have seen many of these old E12 tanks over the years and they aren't easy to find in this kind of condition! An overall great looking vintage toy, this would make a great addition to your collection.. More pics available on request. Item Condition: All items are preowned unless specified.
