I won the ebay auction for these two interesting wood jeeps. Each measures 6-1/2″ long x 4′ high x 3″ wide. I tried to look up some information about them, but didn’t have any luck. That said, I just had a gut feeling that there was something interesting here, so I bought them. Anyone know more about them?

    “LIBERATOR BELGIUM” . We have one in our showcase. I had thought ours was a one-off until I saw these. On ours, someone has painted CHAPLAIN on the windshield raise long ago. Perhaps a post liberation appreciation toy. Interesting how they created the axles with bent nails anchored by fence staples.

    Barney, glad to hear you have them. It affirms my gut theory that these were part of a once larger group before being sold, gifted, or distributed somehow. Does yours have the soldiers also?

    A wild guess…
    The ” LIBERATOR BELGIUM” stamp is obviously added on…perhaps for sale as souvenirs to visiting veterans groups?
    From my time living in the UK, I know groups travelling overseas became a big business in the 70-90s and all manner of keepsakes were prepared for them.

    Also, being sold as a momento would explain their features (fragile canvas top, soldiers with child unfriendly nails sticking out of them, and the very un-toy-like lack of sturdy axles) and their un-played with condition.
