  • Majorette 224-A/B/C Jeep Wrangler

    I now have four versions of the Majorette 224 Jeep Wrangler. Two with hardtop and two with roll bar.

    Some time ago I noticed that the Wrangler with roll bar is actually number 224-C. The hard top version is 224-A. See pic below.

    But what happened to "B"? I can't remember any "deluxe" version. I took a closer look at the two hardtop versions. I've had the yellow one for a few years, and the red one (like the other two) I found last year.

    With the red one (time stamp on base says it was made in 2020) you can see two circles on the roof. Only ever so slightly of course. I edited the pic below here with several filters so that it is more visible what I mean. The yellow jeep (date stamp 2018) doesn't have that.

    If you turn the cars around, you can see that the panes on the underside of the roof have two round holes. These are missing in the yellow model.

    The whole thing gives the impression that a police or emergency vehicle version with roof lights was in preparation. Was there anything like that? Maybe in the SOS Flasher series? I cannot recall any. At least that could have been 224-B.

    Gotta love Majorettes... there's always something to discover!

      These are completely different models in a much larger scale (ca. 1/43). The top two are Mercedes G-wagons (although theoretically it could of course also be Peugeot P4s), the bottom two are Jeep CJs. All are from the "Majocar" series 7300 and were issued in the early 1990's.

          No worries! I made a mistake too. It was actually the 7100 series and they first appeared in 1986.
