SKU# MARX1966-11

This is an un-named Voyager ship that was produced by the Marx Toy Company in 1966. The mold was also used for the well known 1966 Hess Voyager and a year later for Wilco, Service & Travelers. This piece is unlike the Hess edition as far as graphics on the box and lack of any decals on the ship. This piece is from the Marx Museum and was never in circulation. We acquired this from Francis Turner, the curator of the Marx Toy Museum in Moundsville years ago and has been in our personal collection since then. A very rare and hard to find piece in this pristine condition!

Ship Details:

  • The ship has all original deck parts to include radar screen, outriggers, small flag & front mast (see pics).
  • Rudder, anchors & prop all mint condition as well.
  • There are no decals on this edition which sets it apart from all the others (see pics).
  • This ship is bright white, displays extremely well and nearly impossible to find in this condition (see pics).
  • Battery compartment is clean, all the lights have been tested to be in working order.
  • Comes with original battery cover.

Box Details:

  • Bottom of the box is in pristine condition.
  • Top of box has notable differences with sharp graphics done in black and white unlike the others that were colorized. Another difference is that there is a picture of the bow of the ship on each end of the box where the Hess box shows the bow on one end and the stern on the other end.
  • This is one of the nicest editions we have ever seen in a long time (see all pics).
  • The original battery is again different as well with no company name displayed on it showing a picture of the bow of the ship instead.
  • Comes complete with 3 cardboard inserts.
