Hamilton Fire Patrol Jeep Antioch, IL $450

• CATEGORIES: Features, toys

Thought used, this still looks fun for kids. It’s not quite stock anymore, as a bell is installed on the front bumper (sometimes an “H” is on the hood, other times a bell); the front bumper (bumper isn’t stock either). This appears to be missing the hose and ladder as well. There is more about Fire Jeep toys on the CJ-3B Page.

1976 Matchbox Flattie, Glider and Trailer **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Features, toys

UPDATE: After pondering it a while, I decided to get this set for Christmas … better late than never??

I would have been 11 when this jeep and glider set was released by Matchbox. I don’t remember seeing this combo in my 1976 Christmas Sears Wish Book. I’m feeling a bit cheated!

“Original 1976 Lesney England Matchbox Jeep and Glider
Transporter / Gliding Club.

This is a complete set; Condition C-6 due to numerous light marks
mostly on jeep. Not readily noticeable due to color, but can be easily seen under
magnification”

Adrian’s Electric Toy Jeep

• CATEGORIES: Features, Models, toys

Adrian provided some details on a 1/3 scale jeep model he built from Toylander plans. He bought the plans in 2008.

The jeep now pictured on the Toylander website appears to be an improved version, as Toylander’s MB43 looks like it is more jeep-like. Prices vary depending on how complete you want the jeep to be.

Two Jeep Toys from Frank

• CATEGORIES: Features, toys

Frank shared these pics of toys his neighbor gave him. Anyone familiar with either?

The first toy is an odd one. The rabbit in the bubble spins as the jeep moves.

toy-bunny-frank1 toy-bunny-frank2 toy-bunny-frank3

The second toy is a puzzle, as it’s in a CJ-2A box, so he’s not sure if this toy had it’s own box and the neighbor got confused or if it came in the 2A box. With all the nice details, one would expect the base would be correct, too.
