Blimey Blonde how did he get that past the Supreme Commander?

No Idea NoName - but respect !

So what was in the parcel ? This !! a Marx jeep.

I had this vehicle as the first AM transport for the CO11. - It was tough beast . It originally had a trailer and a Search light that sat in the trailer on a tripod.

The lads never thought they would see one again.

Whah haey NoName . No1 and the lads will be amazed to see this baby again.!

She runs Blonde, a little dusty but she looks good.

Its not exactly as I remember. I think that the windshield is not from the same vehicle. My original Jeep was made of a darker plastic. Maybe this is a later model by Marx.

I don't remember mine having a spare wheel on the bonnet.

So with the Jeep, my main childhood replacements are almost complete. I did have a Personnel carrier but I was never as keen on it as the Jeep and trailer . So the trailer comes next lol!

Thanks for looking

Very Nice! The Marx version is a great alternative to the Palitoy one for us vintage guys who remember the 60's! Never had a jeep myself as a kid although one of my cousins had the VAM Landrover in the 70's. A very useful vehicle and a great addition to the Munrovian forces.

Hi Steve
Yes Supreme Commander is reporting higher satisfaction ratings for Gunner- even more so since I spent the weekend doing the corner of the Garden. ..I couldn't help think about what i could buy for the price of this shrub or that perennial lol!

Percy was an amazing vehicle - I loved his story Cool  I never got on with the Mine sweeper attachment and mine broke quite early . I got mine for Xmas 1970 . I was away at my nan and Grandads in Willaston , the Wirral at the time and remember only having one of the guys with me( I think it was NoName )

So the APC  Its still on the list but gotta find that trailer next Laughing

I did pick up this a few months back - the Cherilia version?

Fantastic stuff Steve!, I am a huge fan of jeeps too!, and the Marx is one of the best!, I did have a tiger strip version but I swapped it with Beatlefan as he had one as a kid and wanted another. (there is a pic of it in the Green Beret thread) , and I had just landed a GI Joe jeep!

I love the photos of the boys out and about in the garden!, looking forward to seeing the trailer too! cheers

Great upload Steve! bounce bounce bounce

1st thing i like blondie's side cap . i never had a jeep as a kid i had an irwin armoured car that i loved it could go anywhere , but i have a few jeeps now they are great for adding gear to like an lrdg patrol . glad to see blondie hasnt gotten rusty and can still drive . surprised it still has the mailed fist and other decals in such a good condition . as for the windscreen and spare wheel on the bonnet maybe the memory is playing tricks on you after all these years . all in all a good pick up to the collection and good luck searching for the trailer

You call it a tiger stripe jeep, I'd call it the 'scene of the crime!'
