Extremely rare original two sided Marx Firetruck pattern model came from the Marx toy manufacturing company in Glen Dale, West Virginia. This is the only wooden pattern model from Marx Toys that I've ever seen. Each half of the model was secured into a Pantograph Milling Machine (PMM) which is designed and fabricated mainly to cut wood, plastics , mild steel plates in to any shapes with desired accuracy and precision. This allowed Marx to make a large firetruck or a small firetruck using the same pattern model.
Composition: Wood, bakelite and Steel pins. Dimensions: 28 inches long x 7 inches wide x 10 inches tall. Condition: The wood and bakelite trim are in excellent condition, could use a little cleaning. I added screweyes to the back of the firetruck, so that both sides of the firetruck could be viewed hanging on the wall. I will consider all reasonable offers.Location: Los Angeles, CA USA.
