Marx Draggin Wagon Hot Rod

Did you ever buy something from eBay and for some reason you thought it was supposed to be different even though the description was accurate? That's just what happened with this thing. For some reason I thought it was smaller and would work well with my Marx 'Untouchables' stuff - WRONG! It was just too big at 5 1/8" (13cm) L x 2 1/5" (6.4cm) H. It's a neat toy and all with its red and black plastic color scheme and friction motor and most likely dates from around 1975 when Marx was on its last legs. But ultimately it just wasn't my cup of tea and I ended up getting rid of it. But before I did I had sense enough to take some pics, so here it is from 1975 - the Marx Draggin Wagon. Enjoy!
