Jeeps
Posted by oldcarguy on Tuesday, December 05, 2017 3:34 PM

Now yes , I know there are a couple of jeep products that have been made .Monogram's CJ-7 and MPC's Jeep with Recoiless Rifle . I am referring to these , The Jeep Pick - Up and those Gorgeous Jeep Grand Cherokee's from the eighties  , early nineties .

 Now the reason I ask is this . In 1995 I got hired to drive a Jeep Grand Cherokee for a fellow that was so busy , He didn't have time to drive and do his work on the Phone or the Computer ( yes , he was a computer type ) .

 It was Gold and with Doeskin colored Full leather interior . It had the most comfortable car seats I ever sat in . They cradled and held you comfortably in place at all times .Visibility was great and the ride was superb . Wood -Grain highlighted the outside in a tasteful pattern . 

 As a Jeep they had good ground clearance without requiring steps to gain entry . Good Instrument layout . In other words I want one ! .

Lindberg issued a 1/20 scale Grand Cherokee. Tamiya issued a 1/25 scale Grand Cherokee.

Kit instructions? What's that??

MOPAR...by far!!!

Tamiya's 1/24 Grand Cherokee Limited is a pretty nice kit. I've got one in the stash somewhere. I was unsure of the model year, so I looked it up and it is a 1993 model year with left hand drive (sometimes Tamiya issues Japanese right hand drive kits).

Revell did a Jeep Honcho and MPC did one as well. If you google "mpc jeep pickup" you'll get several hits of Jeep pickup truck variants.

I have a 1:1 1963 Jeep FC 150. Id like to have a kit of it. I did find a paper kit of it. Google it. They are real cool and kinda rare. I need to sell mine though. Anyway, you guys were talking about Jeeps and I though I'd chime in. Take care .

Sorry, didn't realize the last post was so long ago.  I guess the forum is dying a slow death too.

Hi , J Kitman ! 

 I might've posted this in 2017 but I am still looking for that Jeep .The Honcho Pick-Up is a close  ,on body style . But it isn't the car . I don't want to get into a large scratch project .

As stated above there are a large number of the Tamiya Grand Cherokees on E-bay right now. It's about the only game in town.

are you maybe refering to the OLD jeep cherokee? the big bodied one that looked like the honcho jeep? the one that always burned up in electrical fires? for that one, look for the little tonka toys, maybe a start. fred

I've still got a couple of these in storage somewhere. I got them back when Kaybee went out of business for a couple of dollars.
