Thomas Toy Military Police Jeep - Red HP

Here's the second of the Thomas Toy Jeep Triplet we're offering up for your perusal, this one in a bright red hard plastic. Red is not a color one would associate with a military Jeep but it was quite common to mold plastic toys in the '50s in bright shiny colors, irregardless of what they're meant to represent. I have seen this toy in mixed colors without Military Police heat stamped in white on the hood, so Thomas Toy definitely made a purely civilian version of this. My sample shows the typical condition one sees today when buying these - missing windshield, steering wheel, and antenna - at least the G.I's are intact. Speaking of which, yesterday's featured Jeep had a civilian driver and today you'll notice it's loaded with all soldiers. Enjoy! Opa Fritz and Oma Bettina


  1. This is a cool looking Jeep Ed. Neat and simple and it would look great coming out of a Thunderbird 2 pod!

    1. Thanx Woodsy! This is about 1/32 scale. That bright red livery might look great paired with the T-Birds but it's probably a tad too big
