Some Monogram Thunderbird, Grand Prix, and Buick stock car kits had floor jacks.

A particular kit that I know has a jack like that is the MPC Dodge Lil Red Express pickup.  Other MPC Dodge truck kits of that era may have them also.

The MPC Dodge pickup annual kits from 74-77 had similar jacks in them, along with a small tool box. I can't remember if the AMT 53 Ford pickup had a floor jack, I remember it had welding tanks and some other tools.With that kit ('53 Ford pickup) set for reissue, we will find out soon!

If I recall correctly, the '53 Ford pickup truck kit did not come with a jack. However I have been wrong before at least once. LOL!

The '53 Ford pickup has been available for some time now.  It doesn't have a jack like this, it includes a "scissors jack" like that included with many new 1:1 cars.

A similar jack to this one, plated, is in the Model King wedge hauler parts pack from about ten years ago.

It was reissued this year [or early last] no jacks like that one.

I agree, looks like the Dodge pickup one to me.

That is definitely the jack that came with the Dodge trucks, I have one from the 73 annual and another from the Little Red Express.

I just sent another member that exact same jack in a trade, along with jack stands, lug wrench, tool box, gas can & the "haul-it" trailer.

All came from the MPC 1968 Dodge Coronet kit.

I have one of those trailers I need to repaint and I would like to have another one of those Dodge trucks but they go for too much money now.
