“UP for sale, I have a vintage 1960’s Little General Ride On Jeep.

This is still mint sealed in it’s original bag package, which the package boost 2 toys, ride on Jeep and a free military poncho. Well guess what the poncho is part of the bag and you cut it out.

Toy was produced by General Box Co. of Illinois. The bag measures 40″long and about 13” wide. The toy was offered in the comic book ads of the 1960’s as a full ride on Jeep with a dress up military poncho. Who could forget those ads in the comic books?

They were all constructed of printed cardboard and companies like Honor House products seemed to advertise the heck out of these pieces at $4.98.
