About

Fabulous tin litho car toy from Louis Marx, circa 1930. Fabulous paint with some paint chips and scrapes but no rust or dents. Clockwork mechanism works very well as the car races forward collides with something and automatically goes into reverse and does the same thing. Hence the name "Reversible Coupe". Charlie and Mortimers head are spinning the entire time.
