Jeep Toy Identification

Not sure where to post this so I figured I'd do it here. I bought this little jeep toy today and I was hoping one of y'all could help me get some more info on it. I think it's from the 50s or 60s but I'm not sure. It's steel and it was made by Tonka. Any info is appreciated. Thanks y'all

I have a Tonka almost like yours . Mine has a fold down windshield and a plastic top that comes off . It is red . Also has a steering wheel . I don't know much about these , I do collect sheet metal and tin toys but all my other toys are much older . I can tell you this , like everything else old and collectable , being complete and in good condition is everything.

I don't really care as much about how much its worth as I do about just wanting to know how old it is and what it's missing.

There's a bunch of these old Tonka cars in my grandmas basement from when my dad and uncle were kids. Pretty sure we have this exact one too. Most likely early 60's and the only thing it should be missing is the steering wheel and windshield frame. It might have had a plastic top on it.

I would gladly pay that, there was one I played with at the grandparents house, J-10 with an overhead camper. Oh and metal pedal cars from the 50s...

That one is from the early 1960's. The CJ came in a large and a small version, yours is the large. Use the Google image search, and visit eBay. There are Tonka subForums on toy collector and restoration websites, and now and then new never played with Tonkas come up for auction.
