Jeeps

6 Jeeps

The Jeep so named because it was a General Purpose vehicle (GP becoming Jeep)…is an iconic classic…The original Jeep was put into production in 1941, arguably making them the oldest four-wheel drive mass-production vehicles. I have six in my collection. Jeep Wrangler (Siku), Jeep Willys x 2 (Matchbox), Jeep CJ6 (Matchbox) and Jeep Scrambler x 2 (Hot Wheels).

My Jeeps

Jeeps make good towing vehicles, it is a pity recent Matchbox Jeeps don’t have tow hooks. The Siku Jeep Wrangler came in a twin pack with the boat trailer. In the 1975 Matchbox Catalogue the Jeep CJ6 is pictured with a caravan.
