Previously Posted February 11, 2019: These images were posted on Facebook and the toy jeeps attributed to Boeing. However, as a commenter pointed out below, these were actually produced by Western Toy Company in 1959. Here are some other examples.

(02/11/2019) These jeeps are pictured in front of the old Seattle Art Museum (we did field trips there in high school) which is inside Volunteer Park in Seattle, Washington.

    These Jeeps look very similar to the Triang and Anchor pedal Jeeps. What is the insignia above the grill slats? I can’t zoom in enough to tell what it is.

    Pedl Car Lady,

    Thanks for that info. A quick search seems to verify that, which means my other source of information was inaccurate. Thanks so much!
