• CATEGORIES: Other 4x4s

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $4000.

A little more on the Selouki and Faegel/Highway Products.

Not a jeep; just ad odd vehicle. It just struck me as odd. Maybe it’s wide enough to haul a jeep inside? It’s built to carry cargo.

    Very unique looking vehicle. I’m wondering where one would find replacement windshields? Lots of room inside—

    These were a common sight in New Jersey back in the 1950-s & 60’s. The Seven Santini Brothers had a few of these Fageol vans. Fageol also manufactured trucks and buses. Frank Malatesta of Horseless Carriage Carriers, Paterson NJ restored a Fageol moving van of which I believe is still in his large collection, very large collection of vintage vehicles.
    When I was just a little guy at St. Brendan’s R C School playground, like clock work, (at 8:21 AM) the Seven Santini Brothers Fageol moving van would come rumbling down Crooks Ave. towards route 46. While most kids were playing tag, I was waiting for the Seven Santini Brothers.

    Wow that’s rough.
    Fageol/Twin Coach was manufactured about a mile from here in Kent Ohio.
    They went on to build the FJ’s, and a CJ5 called the Selouki for the middle eastern Jeep markets.
    So there is a Jeep tie in.

    Bill, I imagine the windshield would have to be custom made? But, who knows. Stranger items have landed on eBay!

    I gota ask. Where is the engine ? This would be a really cool rig to convert to a camper/cruiser . Great face on this van . Looks like its smiling ! Not sure I would trust an ancient British Leyland engine though. I had an MG once and in those days I could actually still get parts ! Needs a new owner with a vision and more dollars than cents ! 🙂 Mark j
