Antique 1930s Marx Siren Fire Chief 1st Batt. #1 Pressed Steel Wind Up Toy GD


  • I am pleased to offer this Antique 1930s Marx Siren Fire Chief Coupe Toy Wind Up Car! 
  • This early Marx piece was constructed from pressed steel, and has a bright fire-engine red paint job with yellow lettering along the sides and trunk. 
  • The car features electric headlights, fixed wind key, and stop/go lever on the rear.  
  • The car sits on 4 original Marx rubber balloon tires
  • The headlights are powered by a D battery (not included). 
  • The wind up motor appears to have been repaired, as the wind key was replaced. The tabs along the underside are mostly bent, which correlates with gaining access to the wind up motor.
  • Measures approx. 15″ L x 5-1/8″ W x 5-1/2″ H 



Good overall condition for display. Moderate paint loss from scratching across the toy, but still displays nicely with a “played” patina. Rubber wheels are hardened but not cracking and rotate well. Rear drive wheel (driver side) has been repaired and fixed to the axle, other wheels spin freely. Clockwork motor has seen servicing with some visible pieces replaced (wind key is a custom made addition). Lights do function, however the wiring at the battery contact is loose and needs to be re-soldered for consistent contact. Driver-side headlight contact could also use some adjusting. Siren is functioning, and brake lever is functioning. When fully wound, the car will drive at a good speed while making the siren noise.
