1990 Luaz Boxborough, MA No Price

• CATEGORIES: Other 4x4s

Glenn spotted this unusual vehicle.

“It is hard to determine what type of vehicle this is – a truck, or an SUV, or something special. It is a one of a kind. Its foldable tarp roof makes it a great summer vehicle, strong heater warms it up nicely in winter time. Its fuel economy is phenomenal for a 4×4 vehicle – around 33 MPG.

In 1979 LUAZ was recognized as one of the best vehicles for country dwellers at an International automotive exhibition in Czech Republic. Indeed, LUAZ was intended to be a vehicle of choice for countryside and people living there – foresters, farmers. However, throughout almost 40 years of production, only slightly over 200,000 vehicles were made. This is one of the reasons why this car is so rare.

This 1990 LUAZ 969M is a one-owner vehicle (you can still see original USSR plates on it) that has been rarely used, never involved in any accidents, and never winter driven. All this is very rare for a 4×4 vehicle that was built to go fishing and hunting all year round. A very unique find! Despite its age, it is in like-new condition, and it will take you to numerous outdoor trips, to the most remote places.

Almost 25 years ago, we at AlphaCars, established the highest imaginable standards for the quality of our pre-owned vehicles. With no deviation, these standards are maintained today. With no exceptions, each pre-owned vehicle has to pass a rigorous technical inspection followed by the most thorough service work and concourse level detailing. ”

1967 Kaiser Panel Wagon Melrose, MA $6995

• CATEGORIES: Other 4x4s

UPDATE: Still Available.

(02/05/2017) Craig spotted this rare panel wagon.

“Extremely RARE, 1967 1968 Kaiser Jeep Panelwagon, Panel delivery wagon, wagoneer. This has a military history as a audio visual vehicle on Fort Knox. It was refurbished about 20 years ago. The original engine which is still in it, seized about 10 years ago and has been inside storage ever since. The last year it has been outside under cover. It is a 4 X 4
What makes this extremely RARE is the barn doors in the back, not a tailgate like a grand wagoneer Etc.
The body is showing it’s age and perhaps some bondo. The interior is all original and in need of sprucing up.
This Jeep is a fantastic candidate for a full restoration, and would be a very unique addition to a jeep collection. These barn door panel wagons are super super rare and unique.

This vehicle has no title at the I was unable to aquiring a title /papers from the previous owner. The previous owner has passed away from Indiana.
Please contact me with any questions. I may be flexible on the price. I will be advertising this on other jeep for sale sites very soon, so get to it while you can.
I will consider reasonable offers”

UPDATE: this is still for sale Vince wrote a post about this at the DailyTurismo.

Rudy’s selling this rare purpose-built APU on a jeep chassis.

“Very Rare 1953 limited production 4X4 specially built for the U.S Military by O.E Szekely and Associates. This is an all aluminum body, tub, fenders, and hood so theres no cost for rust rot work and repair . Dual Aluminum gas tanks so theres no need to worry about rusted out tanks. The Chassis is Jeep.

1982 CJ-8 Scrambler Williamston, MI $3999

• CATEGORIES: Other 4x4s

Jack found this CJ-8 project.

“ffered reluctlantly is one of my preferred projects a 1982 unadulterated Jeep Scrambler cj8, unfortunately my lungs no longer agree with restoration projects. As much as I love other classics there definately is a “Jeep Thing” which runs through ones veins even Enzo Ferrari gave the Jeep honorable mention. This Jeep Scrambler is definately a basket case which can be a good thing if you know how to restore these but it is all here plus and extra period correct running motor. Please note EXTRA motor as the original [in pieces] is there.

The interior is in excellent shape no rips tears dents or paint, the top a bit faded but also in good shape. Floors are rusted, exterior body good for this state but some rust, frame some rust. Engine in pieces but spare engine comnes with for parts or drop in while you rebuild the other. The pricey scramblers ones 30,000 and up appear to be the unadulterated one as you would expect and I have seen nothing but these going up as less than 25000 were made. Well this scrambler has NOT been lifted, stretched, widened, chopped, had a chevy v8 dropped in [nor any other motor for that fact] made into a rock crawler a mud bogger or anything other than a JEEP SCRAMBLER that is why I bought it.”

’73 Midget + ’53 Jeep = ? Machias, ME $4500

• CATEGORIES: Other 4x4s

Craig spotted this odd ball.



“”For when its the End of the World, but you still want to drive an MG”

This mutant sweetheart is in need of a new home that will parade her hot rod bee-butt around more! In 2010 I purchased her from a talented Dr. Frankenstein who had built her in the 80’s, out of a ’73 Midget and a ’53 Willys Military Jeep.

She’s four wheel drive, has been maintained in running condition, kept in a car cover outdoors, used very little, and makes people ridiculously happy when she drives by. Her builder told us stories of towing his boat through the woods with her after she was born, so i’m pretty sure she’s ready for the apocalypse with just a few more accouterments.

Struck Mini Beep Salem, OR $1995

• CATEGORIES: Other 4x4s • TAGS: .

Blaine spotted this rare Mini Beep Struck.

“This is a really hard to find Struck Mini Beep. These were built by the Struck company that is famous for making the little bulldozers that you could buy as a kit. Today they are called Magna Tracks. This one has been modified some. It is a really neat little Jeep. It articulates in the middle to turn. It is four wheel drive. It runs good but could use a couple of new belts. I collect old garden tractors and so it does not really fit so I am passing it on to someone else to enjoy it. ”

O.E. Szekely-built Ford-Powered 4WD APU

• CATEGORIES: Features, Other 4x4s • TAGS: .

Rudy just purchased this rare and unusual O.C. Szekely-built Ford powered four wheel drive APU. It’s got a an Szekely badge and an O.E. Szekely stamped transmission. I don’t recognize the transfercase, which falls to the driver’s side rather than passenger side.

Thanks to some careful research, Rudy discovered that this vehicle was one of eight deliver to the military on August 25th, 1953. Specifically, “”The vehicle is a specially built two passenger 4X4 truck powered by a FORD eight cylinder engine. . . . A generator mounting chassis, located between the seats, supports the two generators and generator drives” and the “transmission that incorporates the transfer case is designed to transfer engine power to the generator drive”. O. E. Szekely dropped off eight of these vehicles to a shipping service on August 25th, 1953.

1974 VW Thing Acapulco Edition on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Other 4x4s • TAGS: .

This pink surrey-like vehicle looks fun. A blue version of this same vehicle and same year sold for $27,500 at a Barret-Jackson auction.

“Gateway Classic Cars of Tampa is proud to offer this eye-catching 1974 Volkswagen Type 181… aka, the Volkswagen Thing. With looks somewhere between an Army Jeep and a Volkswagen Beetle, the Volkswagen Thing already stands out, but this particular example was built to look like the ultra-rare Acapulco Edition. These cars were built in very low numbers but they are instantly recognizable, and that Caribbean look is transferred to this 1974 Volkswagen Thing Acapulco Edition Tribute with a two-tone pink-and-white paint job, matching interior and the Surrey soft top. If a canvas roof isn’t quite your style, though, this car also comes with a full open-side hard top and removable roll bars. Powering this 1974 Volkswagen Thing is a rear-mounted 1,584-cc horizontally opposed and air-cooled four-cylinder, and this engine is backed by a four-speed manual gearbox. Drop the top, remove the doors and flip down the windshield, and this 1974 Volkswagen Thing is a perfect beach cruiser, parade vehicle or show car!”

Puegot P4 4×4 Los Angeles, CA $19,500

• CATEGORIES: Other 4x4s

Glenn spotted this unusual Puegot, at least unusual in America. It doesn’t look quite as nice as the one on Wikipedia. Some of the black trim may have been painted on white on this vehicle.

“For Sale is a very unique Peugeot P4 freshly imported from France. These are very rare in the US. This vehicle was refurbished in France for a UN contract. Mechanically perfect with approximately 14,000 miles (22,626 kilometers). It is essentially a Mercedes G-wagon with a Peugeot 505 diesel motor and 4 speed transmission.”

1974 Pinzgauer 4×4 Mesa, AZ $9500

• CATEGORIES: Other 4x4s

Glenn forwarded this hard to find Pinzgauer for sale.

“I am forced to sell my 1974 Pinzgauer. Need the money and not able to hunt this season. Its bone stock.

Used it for hunting, fishing, camping and cutting wood. with independent suspension makes a incredibly smooth ride and perfect for an avid hunter.

It has the wheelbase of a jeep wrangler but fits 10 passengers. On the fly 4 wheel drive and on the fly lockers front and back. top speed is 65. Portal axles give it incredible ground clearance under the differentials. Slide a 5 gallon bucket under neath the diffs with 32 inch tires. Why have a loud rzr or ranger with no capability to hold nothing but you and a little bit of gear.”
