It's in a bit grubby condition but after a good scrub in the bath it's all rearing for a good bash

Ian,

I can't find any kind of stamp on mine, even after popping off the chassis on one of them. I think Cherilea (an English toy company) originally made these, but the jeeps were also available again in the 1990's through 'Sunny smile' another toy company (same company under a new name????). Sunny Smile also released a cheap line of 12" action figures to go with these vehicles, i think - (1990's-2001?) probably because of the popularity of Modern Action Man at the time. The figures were called 'Strike Force', one of my jeeps has a 'Strike Force' sticker, i also have some of the Strike Force figures (a bit ugly looking) they are posted on here somewhere..

Scroll down to see more close ups of the figure's articulation...

When those jeeps are found, 9 times out of 10 the gear sticks are missing, i still need two. To fully restore your jeep, it needs the windscreen, bonnet/hood, two clip on lamps for the windscreen, steering wheel, gear stick, silver/grey coloured machine gun/s with ammo clip, and a hook for the winch on the front of the jeep.

Someone will probably correct me on the timeline of Sunny Smile and Strike Force releases. I was going by memory.
