This offering is for a very nice old Marx buckboard wagon, with old man driver, and a horse with triple-jointed legs and jointed head. I have no concept as to how this was originally sold so there could be missing parts that I would be unaware of as I think they made several variations at the time. The harness on the horse appears to be complete and the only damage I find on any of it or the other pieces is a broken hook where the harness attaches to wagon. See pics. There are holes at each corner of the wagon as if it may have had posts to support a cover or sideboards in the past. The driver has a neat beard and a happy look on his plastic face even though he has been setting up high on a shelf in an old shed for years and has accumulated lots of dust on him and his clothing along with a bit of light soiling. He still has his whip tucked under his right arm although the cord on it is separated. His left arm is actually separated at about the elbow and needs to be pushed back on, and possibly glued back on. It was a bit loose and it was easier to remove for shipping than the glue on the reins on his hand would have been. I do believe he can be cleaned up with just a bit of TLC. The wheels roll easily and show no damage, but the four of them, and the horses’ feet have all been glued to a board in the past and have a bit of dried glue still stuck on, which should be removable. From horse’s nose to rear of wheels, measures about 31 long, about 14 high to driver’s hat, and 9 wide at the hubcaps. It will be shipped slightly disassembled but will still take a large box. Approximately 24 x 15 x 12. Shipping weight is appx. 8#. This entire item will need some careful cleanup, but shows no bad stains to remove. Please see all the pics, and I can supply more. This item will also be on display at Lincoln Antique Mall, Lincoln Mo. so please check with me regarding availability if interested. Thank you very much for looking.
