This little plywood puzzle was clearly hand made, held together with visible little nails. The object of the puzzle or game is to move the cars around in the "garage" in such a way as to get the truck to the bottom left of the puzzle box and out the garage door. Besides the truck, inside the garage are 7 cars, a Packard, a Pontiac, a Chevy, a Plymouth, a Dodge, a Ford and only one Jeep. There are supposed to be 2 Jeeps but there must have been an accident that totaled one of them resulting in it being hauled off to the junk yard. An adult can replace the Jeep with imagination; a child might need to have a new piece made. Then again, a child might well solve it so fast, with or without a second Jeep, that any adult within viewing distance will be really embarrassed. It’s hard to tell.

The puzzle is 7 x 8 ½ inches (abt 178 x 216 mm). I remember when my dad and uncle were making them, they were quite the rage in the small town where we lived.
