The Tandy/Radio Shack Jeep Renegade appeared at Tandy and Radio Shack stores in 1984 and 1985, and was sold in either gun metal blue, red, or black. The vehicle is powered well by 4 x C cells and 1 x 9 volt, and was manufactured by Taiyo in Japan and Singapore, and was originally sold as the “Off Road Jeep” by Taiyo in Japan and elsewhere as early as 1980. Highly versatile for the time with it’s switch-selectable 3 speed gearbox in the rear carry tray which, in 1984, enabled the vehicle to trundle over more obstacles in low gear than many other ready-to-run R/C cars on the market. It’s foldable windshield, plastic spare tyre and jerry can on the back, add to the charm. This was a very scale-like Jeep which is a must-have for Jeep scale model collectors, particularly due to it’s fairly large size – being close to 1/10 scale (more like about 1/12 I think). This model harks back to a lost era of toy shop R/C cars that were made for realism.
