According to the photographer:

This was taken in Durkee, Oregon – about 1 block from the Durkee, Post Office. (I am not sure if the Post Office is still open). You can actually see this vehicle in Google Street View if you look in the field at the southeast portion of the intersection of Old US Highway 30 and Oxman Ranch Road in Durkee. ….

Doug sent this beautiful photo of a Jeep Rambler hybrid he spotted on Flickr. One commenter called it a Jambler. All-in-all, this combo could have looked a lot worse! Note the builder even stenciled ‘JEEP’ onto the back tailgate.

The photo was taken by ‘Old White Truck’. There are some beautiful photos and some humorous captions on his Flickr photostream.

    Unfortunately we are only seeing truck in a neglected state, I would like to see it when it was just done. I would love to know the backstory, was the front end of the rambler wrecked, or was the rear of the truck wrecked? Maybe they were late model vehicles when it was built.

    Doesn’t trip my trigger, but a lot of good quality work seems to have been done here…so get’s my respect !
    If the builder had chopped the top of the Willys to match the roof line of the Rambler it would have been killer looking IMHO !
    Nice job though…

    Mike,

    I suspect this was taken in Montana. I’ve emailed the photographer to see if I can learn more.

    Now this is “all original”, in the truest sense.
    I really like Robert Anderson’s idea of chopping “the top of the Willys to match the roof line of the Rambler” :-).

    Yes, I admire the work of art, doing stuff like this is fun, seldom appreciated, creative talent comes in many forms, society is much too structured in it’s recognition.
