Struck Mini Beep Salem, OR **SOLD**

• 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. ”

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.”

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

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

UPDATE II: Another of these surfaced in 2019.

(12/18/2016) 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.”

This is a rare Alaskan Postal Delivery Service Scrambler.


“This is a Rare Right Hand Drive (RHD) Jeep Scrambler CJ-8.
Jeep made around 230 of these Scramblers in 1984 for the Alaskan Postal Delivery Service.

This Jeep runs and drives, however once she is warmed up she tends to want to stall out at stoplights if you don’t feather the throttle a bit. Rather than messing with the single barrel carb on there, I have a rebuilt dual barrel Motorcraft 2100 ready to be installed, but have not yet had the time.


The details are as follows:
The drive train of this Jeep is stock (carbureted 4.2 L 6 cylinder with automatic trans)
4WD works
Rare World Cab Hard Top, only sold in USA on these 230 Alaskan Jeeps. All other Scramblers were sold as Pickup Trucks in the US! South America got these world cab or Overland cab tops, but very few of those in US!
