jeep

Post by Retired » Sun Jul 17, 2011 4:13 pm

Saturday, July 16th at the Military Swap meet at the Portland Expo Center, I bought a Danbury Mint Die-Cast jeep [It is no longer in production] that came with a removeable cloth top and a .50 BMG, the detailing
on it is amazing, hood opens to reveal the engine that has sparkplug wires, black radiator, air cleaner, battery and volt regulator, the rear seat folds down, as does the windshield, rubber tires and steerable front
wheels. The under carriage is also highly detailed as well, it also came with the foam packing sleeve & the original box, which adds to the value. I checked online later, and saw one exactly like mine sell for $151.00
and several others in less than perfect condition & missing some parts going between $58.00 and $85.00.

Lucky bugger. I was at the same show on Friday, and if I'd seen it, I would have bought it for sure. I need another Jeep model like I need a third ear, but I've always wanted one anyway. Good score, glad someone on the G got it!

I have the same jeep, but the Brides cat broke the side mirrow of it.
Lee, do you have the Jim Bean decantor MB jeep? It is big....and drinkable! A friend saw it and ordered it for me back in the mid 1980s. Good friends are out there.
