Works well, displays very well. See description for details
Original mid-1920’s; I am pleased to be offering a Rare Hi-Way Henry Jalopy toy wind-up made from tin and distributed by Borgfeldt. It has the Nifty Brand Name as well. This 90+ year old toy is in great condition with colorful litho. graphics showing some light play wear and minor paint loss.
Note: all of the toy is all original except for the replica stove we had professionally created by Joe Freeman of Tin Toy Works.
There is little known about this mystery comic created by artist Oscar Hitt who’s name is clearly marked on both sides of the car. This unique car displays many interesting features including: air dry laundry on the roof of the car, a dog (Henry IV) in the dog house for the engine compartment, stove and wash board in the rear,bearded driver and who I would guess is his wife “Ma” listening to headphones that are connected to the clothes line as the antenna.
I have tested the cars mechanical wind-up to be in good strong working order, pushing the car along, raising the front tires off the ground at different levels.
Marked on the front of the jalopy reads: Made in Germany.
Measures: 6″ tall.
Highly desirable piece for any toy collection!
