Unusual Strangers

 In Steve Butler

By Steve Butler

This 10.2-inch pressed steel sedan or limousine was issued by Marx circa 1936. The decal above the split rear windows reads in part “PRESS DOWN HERE” just below a hand doing so on a car’s roof. Pressing down compresses a piece of spring steel and loads a set of gears eliminating the rake of the vehicle in the process. When the hand is removed, the gears immediately begin to unload turning the rear axle/wheels.
