Click on any photo to see a larger version...

This model is the AHI Landrover in green with tan driver. It is a copy of the MB12-a Landrover.

The model has a one-piece metal body, 45mm in length. It has been molded with the body casting having representations of the grille, lights, and front bumper cast at the front, driver, steering wheel, and seating. There is no glazing. The original wheels are black plastic and attached to steel axles with a large domed head on one side and crimped ends on the other. They are held to the chassis by means of short columns that protrude down from the body.

There is no base plate, and the under side has no manufacturer's mark but does have the country of origin "JAPAN" cast under the foot well area.

I do not know exactly when this item was issued but it would have been between 1959 and the mid 1960s.
