I have a lead on a GI Joe Jeep. :bacondance: I haven't seen it yet so I don't know what shape it's in. What is a reasonable price to ask for one of these?

Depends on condition and it depends on which company made it. There are Generic ones out there that sold for like $35 NIB, then there's the 21st century toys ones that were around $50-$75 NIB, then of course HAsbro (GI JOe) that were expensive NIB. So it really depends.

It belongs to a guy at work. He's in his mid 20"s and to him it's just a toy.
I asked him if he knew what who made it and he doesn't have a clue.
I don't want to screw him but I don't want to spend an arm and a leg because I'm just going to cut it up.

Well if it was made by Hasbro or 21 st century toys it'd be molded or stamped into the plastic, if not then it is the cheaper "Soldiers of the World" verson which is less money. One thing to verify the Hasbro(gi joe ) ones, the steering wheel actually turned the wheels in front, and they were weathered.

Here's a link that'll help ya

Another one to think about is the Dragon model. That one came with canvas top, straps and a full ungine under the opening hood. They go for several hundred.

Rockedout, I have the Hasbro and the steering wheel does not/did not turn the front wheels. This might be true for some but not all.

Average price on the bay is anywhere from $30 to $75 depending on which one. I picked up mine (like this one http://cgi.ebay.com/G-I-Joe-1941-Willys-Jeep-w-Machine-Gun-Army-Military_W0QQitemZ110518079765QQcmdZViewItemQQptZL H_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item19bb641115 ) for $50 on ebay.

Here is a link to some of them for price comparisons.

I forgot about the Dragon Models ones, I thought all of the New Hasbro ones had the functioning steering wheel. Guess not. The link I posted for him is a decent comparison link for the different jeeps though, Dragon ones are too much to cut up for sure though!

Throw the guy a 20 and see if he bites. Like you said to him its's a toy. I picked one up at a thrift store last year for $10.
