Marx Toy Box


Welcome to my Marx Collection. My collection consist of pressed steel Marx trucks and cars from around the 1920's - 1940's.  I'm also collecting Marx tin litho playsets.  I'm always looking for Wyandotte and Marx Easter trucks that I don't have in my collection or parts that I'm missing for the tin litho playsets or truck sets.  I collect original toys that have original paint no repro's or repaints in my collection.  My gas pump globes and headlight bulbs are the only repro parts.

Always looking for Marx trucks and trailers with original cardboard inserts and with original loads.
