Just dug this out from storage. dad brought it back from Hamburg about 1949. Most likely made up from gerry aeroplanes, smelted down, cast and tastefully machined into a Jeep ! Love the sticker inside "Made in Germany - U.S. Zone".



That is great! not seen anything like that before

Interestingly enough, the Jeep seems to be a cigarette tin, while the trailer serves as an ashtray - the diagonal hollows would serve as rests for the burning cigarettes.


Amazing what was made in post war Germany (and Japan) to cater to the occupation forces.
