Marx Toy Box

Welcome to my Marx, Wyandotte, and Girard Collection. My collection mainly consists of pressed steel and tin Marx trucks, cars, and playsets from around the 1920's - 1940's.  I'm always looking for Wyandotte and Marx Easter trucks that I don't have in my collection.  Always looking for Marx trucks and trailers with original cardboard inserts and with original loads.  Also looking for Marx Private Label trucks and any Marx army toys not in my collection.  I collect original toys that have original paint no repro's or repaints in my collection.
