Matchbox Jeep Puzzle on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Features, toys • TAGS: .

This is a pretty simple puzzle, but I doubt many exist.

“This is a 5″ X 7″ jigsaw puzzle produced in 1969 by the Fred Bronner Corporation, the US importer of Matchbox cars to promote the British line of diecast model cars.  There are 8 puzzles in the set, and I have all eight listed now on eBay. Six of the eight listed are still sealed in the factory shrink-wrap. This particular one, the Standard Jeep number 72, has no shrink-wrap, but all pieces are there, and it is in excellent condition.”
