    Could’nt build it for that price, very nice MB, and with all the extras also. I would think it will not last for sale long.

    So many thought on this one:
    Agree with Luis that it shouldn’t last long at this price!
    Are the front-most cans on the hood for Petrol? Water? …British or German?
    Is that the correct overflow tank on the grill?
    I’m glad the seller didn’t cut the front grill like the “real” LRDG jeeps.
    Did they have the blackout drive (drivers fender) that early in the war?
    No windscreen here… which seems to make sense: just never noticed that before.

    NICE jeep at a great price 😀

    The LRDG used German jerry cans. Brits supplied petrol in square ‘flimsy’ metal cans that leaked, punctured easily, and were hard to pack efficiently.

    The cans on the front of the hood look like ‘Jerry’ cans, the ones in the rear like the standard US made jerry cans widely sold before the State of Kalifornia decided that they were a pollution risk.

    I live in Holland Europe and are interested!

    Hi Pete,
