the orange jeep is at least a 1948-1953 model, CJ-3A as 2 piece windshields were standard before 1948. The green one's tailgate indicates a 1945-1951 model. Not that good w/ Toy L/C's.. Nice Chevy Fleetline.. always liked DT466 engines, popular and plentiful.... funny always thought they were a V8.....
