LIONEL ELECTRIC TRAINS ALCOA ALUMINUM HOPPER 1956 LIONEL # 6346-56
Up for auction is an original 1956 Lionel #6346-56 ALCOA ALUMINUM HOPPER. This car is used, but in decent, original condition. As you can see in the photos, this car is in good shape. The car looks to be original, and has no cracks that I can see. The lettering is clean & easy to read. The ALCOA sticker on both sides is clean and complete. All 12 hatches on top open. There are a few "scuff" marks, but nothing too serious. I don't see any signs of rust on any of the metal parts. The car rolls freely, and both couplers work . This car does not have it's original box, but I will make sure it is wrapped in foam, and thick cardboard for it's journey to the winning bidder !
You are bidding on exactly what is pictured, and that's what will be shipped to the winning bidder. .
