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.”

Team America Movie Prop Russian Gaz Model Seattle, WA $1250

• CATEGORIES: Features, Models

I don’t know what it’s worth, but this model of the Russian Gaz is pretty cool. You can learn more about Team America here.

“This is the actual prop Jeep used in the cult classic comedy Team America: World Police (2004) by Trey Parker and Matt Stone (the creators of South Park and Book of Mormon). The vehicle is made mainly of metal, has a wood floorboard, and rubber tires. It measures approx 54″ long x 24″ wide x 18″ high and weighs about 90 lbs. The bloody windshield has a crack on the driver’s side (presumably from filming). This great conversation piece comes with a COA (Certificate of Authenticity) from Premiere Props.”

Willys MA Model Box on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Features, Models

This is a rare box that looks most like a Willys MA, but I don’t think the parts will make a jeep.

“Igot this box in a garage sale and I am not sure if the items inside the box are from that model kit so I am selling more the box that the items (ofcourse I will send all show in pictures) expecting that some one will have use for them but my price is more for the box.

Box is original and old and it shows wear due to time and storage, will be a nice + for any one who collect this king of items. Thanks for looking!”

Mod AC Amphibian Jeep Instruction Kit **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Features, Models

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay

These are a set of instructions and the schematics to build a SEEP (GPA).

“Vintage 1940s era 1/2 inch scale model of the U.S. Army Amphibian Jeep or Quack, produced by MOD-AC Manufacturing Company of Los Angeles. Included in the auction are two remaining pieces of the Jeep’s original die cut cards – nothing else remains from the set. Found in an old box of model pieces, the schematics / assembly instructions for this stood out as frameable art, especially for the lover of short-run Jeeps. The assembly instructions are printed only on one side – what you see is what you get. The cards measure about 8-1/2″ long, the instructions, about 15-1/2″ wide and 10-1/2″ tall. The instructions have been folded for almost 70 years, and have no stains or major rips, but there are some pin-size holes and a little damage in one area to the paper, probably from handling or from insects.”

” This handcrafted mahogany wood model is an extremely beautiful replica of a World War II Willys jeep with machine gun. Weapon is optional and can be easily removed if desired, it also rotates 360 degrees. Model has an extremely detailed interior with gauges, foot and brake pedal and steering wheel that rotates.

This is not some cheap wood toy, each model takes an average of 18 hrs to complete and is coated with 3 coats of polyurethane for a super high gloss finish. You will not find a better more detailed model than this.

WEST-CRAFT Model Kit on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Features, Models

The sellers claims this is from 1942, which would make it a pretty early model. The shovel on the passenger side is interesting.
