Old Tin Jeep (Custom?) **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Features, Models

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay

This is a cool model jeep with an unusual look. It looks custom made, but I just don’t know.

“I found this all metal toy at a garage sale and it looked really old so I got it. I did some research and found it was made around World War 2 and that its made out of what I presume to be tin. The wheels are all metal, not rubber, which suggests their manufacturing date is early 1940’s. This is obviously made by hand and all the parts appear to be there with no major damage or missing  attachments. There is a number 41 on the bottom which I assume is the year it was made. I couldnt find this toy any where else online so It’s obvious it is not a common find.  It has a notable sense of quality and is about 9″ by 4″ in size. It has some weight to it because it is made out of solid metal, no plastic. This piece looks great and has a really cool antique charm.”
