Awesome 1950s-60s Marx Mini Climbing Tractor Toy

MARX MINI CLIMBING TRACTOR TOY

This little gem just showed up and we had to share it with you. It is a mini climbing tractor made by the Louis Marx and Company of New York sometime in the late 1950s to early 60s. The litho paint on it is in superb condition very bright with minimal wear. The only thing it is missing is its original box.

IndyPicker finds a Rare Coca Cola Pam Clock from the 1950s

We recently came across a great Coca Cola clock and decided to buy it. After doing further research we could only find 3 times this specific clock design had come up for sale on the web. Most of these period clocks show the red fish tail coke logo. This one has a hand holding a cup that says with the tag lines "Refresh Your Self" Have a Coke. PAM Clock Company of New York made clocks for lots companies to advertise their products. Coca Cola was one of the largest.
