UPDATE II: After 10 plus years, we finally have a photo of an actual GPV Volkswagen-jeep! Thanks to Jay for sending this photo. I hope we can get some more!



UPDATE Jan 18, 2013:  I found a second brochure that identifies this as a Sandman GPV

Has anyone ever heard of this Volkswagen/jeep model?  It doesn’t seem to be a VEEP.  Other searches yielded nothing about this unusual rig.

    Interesting that all the brochure pics seem to be artists conceptions of the end product, and none look like they are to scale.. I wonder if the company ever produced an actual vehicle or was selling a dream? Jeep being mentioned in their brochure may have been quelled by Jeep at the time, too.
