For your consideration is this 1930-40s American Railway Express folk art toy wood truck. The truck shows a wood and metal construction and is painted red with black accents and white lettering. The back cargo area is constructed from an old John Ruskin cigar box. The exterior reads in white paint, "American Railway Express / New York - Chicago" on both sides of the cargo area. The toy shows good condition with wear from its vintage age and use over the years, but is still in good usable or display condition. The toy measures 17 1/4" L x 5 7/8" W x 8" H.
