Kaiser’s Flintstone Mobile (aka the “KLI”)

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images

Cruising through some online photos yesterday, I stumbled upon a Kaiser Jeep prototype called the Sport Low Investment” (XLI) vehicle. Apparently, employees dubbed it the Flintstonemobile. Figuring Derek likely did a write up on this vehicle, I went over to the 3B page and sure enough, he’s got an informative write up on it: https://cj3b.info/Factory/FactoryXport.html

    I believe I have a CD of photos of that prototype being built at the “Highway Products” facility in Kent Ohio where the postal Jeeps and the FJ’s were assembled.

    Not to mention the Seloucki

    Keith,

    A Seloucki? That’s a new one for me. What is/was a Seloucki? Even the great Googler balks when I try to search for that term.
