No, that is not possible, the jeep wasn't even a prototype until 1940.

Re: OT Collectible toys, is this possible.

Nope...I even have a couple of that exact toy. I'd say produced in the 60's or 70's at the earliest.
What a rip-off.

Not a rip-off yet anyway, no bidder. I just love it when these people pay 4 or 5 listing fees and never get a bite on their junk.

Re: OT Collectible toys, is this possible.

I myself being a bidder and seller in very good standings on e-bay,,( bows all around) I sent them a note about how some one needs to identify as correctly as possible the items they sell or very carefully word thier adds. That toy is how ever a copy of the military M38 and was manufactured around the early to mid 60's I am setting here looking at a very good condition twin to it, only in the original olive green that it came in. Of course this was stated tactfully to the seller.

Re: OT Collectible toys, is this possible.

I sent the guy a "question for seller" asking to check the vintage, that Jeeps weren't even invented until 1940 [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]

Actually I bought Rick a pretty cool old old Tonka CJ2a/M38 lookin jeep off ebay for Christmas it is pretty cool & only cost like $8 or something like that.
