Because we can't get enough vintage tinplate toys---and courtesy of a previous auction at Croton's own SeriousToyz.com -- “Dick Tracy Automatic Police Station Complete with Squad Car”, 1952, by Marx.
The station is 6 x 9", car is 7.5”; crank handle, "the doors fly open & the squad car dashes to the rescue"; even though the car had minor roof dents & 2 small paint chips--and the station had typical warping to plastic---it sold for $590.24!
It's followed by an oldie but goodie and one of our favorite houses by Howard--the green spot clock house with three flatties--all we have to say is WOW. See more of the house here http://bit.ly/1tiqYpa
