    Default Future Steel Soldiers?

    Hey fellas, I considered posting this in the Jeep forum, but then decided that even though it's really close it's still a replica.

    My boss bought this for his kids on his son's 4th birthday.
    This is the coolest toy I have ever seen! It is a scale replica of a willys WW2-Korea Jeep!
    Glass reinforced polyester body and steel frame, built by Junior Replicas, this mini-jeep is as close to the real thing as your kids could ever want!
    I believe it is a 1/2 or maybe 2/3 replica, everything is to scale including the mini NDCC tires, NATO fuel can, pioneer tool rack, blackout headlamp, and the roll bar!

    The jeep features 4 speeds (3 forward and 1 reverse) and is powered by an electric start Honda 6.9HP standard engine.
    The (rations) box is actually the access door to the engine/transmission compartment.
    Unfortunately it is only 2wd but I don't think the kids know the difference.
    It has rack+pinion steering
    Full suspension
    Seatbelts
    A full size spare tire
    A horn
    Headlamps with strobes
    Tail lamps with strobes and turn signals
    A genuine fold flat windshield
    A passenger side brake override pedal (for mommy or daddy to keep you from running down the neghbor's cat)
    And the authentic 'data plates' for the 1/4 ton willys Jeep

    When I have kids, and if I can tear it away from my boss, I'm buying it.

    Oh, and before you ask, the Jeep did not leave that rubber strip.

    That is a cool toy. Was it a one off or is there a company that produces them?

    That's pretty cool! I like the stickers on the dash!

    So your boss is in or from Cali?

    I want one to drive around at rallies!
    Some people are like slinkys, not much good for anything, yet would still bring a smile to your face if you pushed them down a flight of stairs.

    I work on Warner Robins AFB, so if anyone needs previews or items picked up, PM me.

    The company is called Junior Replicas. I am not sure if they are even still in business, but I think they were a branch of the FAO Schwartz toy company. I gotta google it.
