Hi everyone,

I just picked this up on ebay, it is about three inches wide and around two inches high with a coin slot on top. I am assuming that they were given away at dealerships when the B vans first came out. Anyone ever run across one of these, or know anything else about them?

Not familiar with that strong box. How much did you pay for it?

Thought the price is little higher, still a good collectible.

I did some searching, it appears these were given around 1970-71 for tradesman vans. Back then, the dealers had all kinds of promotions and gadgets to give out to try and entice you to buy a vehicle. Been collecting Mid-Dodge stuff for over 40 years and never came across any of these. Nice find.

That's sweet! I've not heard of them before either. Definitely looks like it would be right at home perched on a Dodge dealer's desk.

I wonder, if we counted up how many improvements we've made to our "strong boxes" if the number would even fit on the little trunk? smile

It's what you learn after you know it all, that counts...

Are you living to work, or working to live?

Seems like I found a unique piece. I found it by accident. The guy had two, I missed the first one, then found the second one. I wonder if it was a national thing, or a local item. Local zones had more freedom back then and this could have been a regional item.

Is there any copyright date or Chrysler logo on the box?
