Further to my recent post about my old Desert Patrol Jeep by Modern Toys I had a browse round for variations and knockoffs.
This Desert Super Tiger above appears to be one such copycat albiet tooled-up for the garish Eighties. This is a Chinese knockoff from 1985.
The next two I found on the superb VECTIS auction site. Above is a Greek copy by Lira with its blue based box. Below is the Marx Tricky Action Jeep, which might be the forerunner of them all.
This last one appears to be a blue-gun variation from South America.
And if you've never seen the Desert Patrol Jeep in action then feast your eyes on this short You Tube film. It's one crazy vehicle! I remember taking it to my first school around '67 after Xmas. It was wild! Did anyone else take presents into the class, to show everybody and the teacher after Christmas?
