6736 Detroit & Mackinac
Production: 1960 - 1962
The 6736 Detroit & Mackinac hopper is an open quad hopper produced by Lionel in the early 1960s. Its three year run and inclusion in many set as well as being available for separate sale has made his a fairly easy hopper to find. However, collector quality examples are more difficult to locate as most appears in beginner or starter sets and frequently appear in well used condition.
Standard features on the 6736 include: red painted body with white lettering, a single brakewheel, spreader bar and AAR trucks with two operating couplers.
There is a hard to find version having a partly filled in face within the emblem (or logo) on the side of the hopper. This is commonly known as a factory error and will command a premium in price.
