Additionally a one off concept jeep based on the original willys mb



Quote:
The Wrangler 75th Salute is a modern version of the Willys MB. It is based on the current two-door Wrangler JK Sport. It combines functionality with old-school looks. There are no B-pillars or doors. It is painted in the olive drab color scheme first used in the military 75 years ago.

The Wrangler 75th Salute has 16-inch steel wheels with 32-inch military non-directional tires. It also has hood latches, a rear-mounted spare tire, steel front and rear bumpers with tow hooks, and low back canvas seats – all similar to the original Jeeps.

The concept vehicle has custom wood hood blocks and side mirrors. It also boasts bronze commemorative fender badges. For power, it will have a 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine with a six-speed manual transmission.

It was built on July 15th on the same assembly line that has built Wranglers in Toledo, Ohio for decades.
And here's the original jeep being tested by the US army.

Yes - and meanwhile I wonder if I should buy a jeep for those stretches between Outer Ring Road and Graphite Signal in Bangalore. Some of those "short cuts" are if anything worse than that US army test track.
