Timelessly Beautiful Sport Coupe for Sale. The Märklin automobile / truck construction sets were in the Märklin catalog from 1933 to 1955. You could assemble a "new car" à la carte from the construction set program: All of the bodywork design fit on a universal chassis in a scale of 1:16 - from the sports car to the tank truck, from the race car to the fire truck. A mechanism and an electrical system could be installed later - the final assembly took place at home. The "Streamlined Limousine" had the most modern design, a sporty vehicle that today would be called a "Coupe". Streamlined shape, elegant two-tone paint job, and bright chrome parts provided the spirit of the times both in the building of the real life automobile and in the construction of the model automobile. This automobile, carefully manufactured now as a regular production model, not only represents a piece of Märklin tradition, it also is a tangible document of the exciting history of the automobile.
