THE 1950s Marx issued large toy trucks of about 1/18th scale with C.O.E. (cab over engine) cabs that were very decent renditions of 1948-1950 Fords. They represented models F-4 or F-5 models that differed in weight limitations but not in outward appearance.
Two such trucks are presented herein. Both should be considered to be among the better trucks issued by Marx despite having plastic cabs.
