The Platypus Jeep

So, technically this isn’t a Jeep, but it is kinda of SEEP-like and the folks over at Jalopnik called it a Jeep, so I figured I’d post a couple pics of it.  Also, I checked out the website www.boatcar.net and that site has several different SEEP-like vehicles.

• CATEGORIES: Other 4x4s, Unusual This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

Ok, so I admit I thought this was going to be junk.  But, on closer inspection, the suspension is unusual, the engine/tranny/tc all appear to have been neatly rebuilt.  Besides, buy this and “be the only dude w/ a 4×4 model t”.

this auction is for a custom built 1942 willys jeep w/ ford model t body parts. the engine is a 2.o ohv ford engine that is freshly built . i just completed the wiring , except for the headlights and taillights. this project is 95% done. it is lacking glass and paint along w/ lights frnt and back. i believe the items that are lacking are very personal items and should be chosen by someone that plans on keeping it awhile. it needs doors as well. but there are many options to choose from. i would like to see someone that plans on keeping it finish it . that way i dont lose out on my time and effort and the buyer picks it for cheaper. feel free to call or e-mail w/ any questions or concerns.buyer is responsible for shipping  and may be able to meet half way or deliver for a fee . thanks and good luck. this is a great vehicle and deal as wll , dont pass it up. be the only dude w/ a 4×4 model t. only one i know anyways!!

1958 DKW Munga Auto Union Seattle, Wa Status Unknown

• CATEGORIES: Other 4x4s • TAGS: This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

UPDATE:  Status Unknown

(06/04/2010)  DKW Mungas were sold in the USA by Studebaker, along with Mercedes-Benz. Here are a variety of images of the Munga.  Munga is the German Acronym for “Multi purpose Universal Cross-country Car with All-wheel drive”.

“1958 DKW Auto Union Audi Jeep 3=6 Munga Gelandewagen 3cyl 2 stroke FWD/4X4. VIN 68602889. Miles 24,579. NATO Peacekeeping Jeep. FWD 4X4 3cyl/ 2 Stroke. This rare piece of post war history is a DKW / Auto Union Military jeep which was later used in civilian production. This car came to Seattle in 1982 from Palo Alto, California where it had lived for decades. It was driven regularly in the 80’s and sold with a DKW collection and put in dry storage until now. It is believed complete and also has many spares including a good crankshaft, which is an important item on this car. We have taken many parts out of the car to show condition of the body, but we will load it for the purchaser and carefully package it. As you can see the car is partialy disasembeld and it does not run.

The Auto Union was the collaboration of DKW, Audi, Wanderer and Horch

These vehicles are extremely nimble, and will climb a very high grade. They rev like crazy, and are a hoot to drive. Front wheel drive to four wheel drive on the fly, they are nearly impossible to get stuck in. 3 cylinder two stroke with only seven moving parts in the engine, there are strong parts clubs overseas and in the U.S. These are a fabulous conversation piece, and can be used instead of a golf cart at a car show or auction site. Very collectible and priced to sell. Nice restoration project. There are several owners clubs in the world and parts are accessable.”

1943 Ford Burma Truck Denver, Co eBay

• CATEGORIES: Other 4x4s, Unusual • TAGS: This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

Greg spotted this old Burma up for auction in Denver.  There’s something about the placement of the headlights that makes me think these vehicles appear hunched over in some way, ready to bear their load.

“1943 Ford Burma Jeep.  Unrestored as shown.  Stored at least 10 years, either driveline or engine, or both siezed or locked up from non-use, so expect motor and driveline restoration is also needed.  Does not run or drive. Rust on stake bed areas, as shown.

“US Navy” marked on the engine cover data plate, Also visible is “149958” which is the title VIN number, and other number appears to be “90148”, but not guaranteed.  Other data plates are nearly illegible, sorry.

Sold with title, SALVAGE Colorado Title.  Vehicle was used off road on a mountain property for many years, and was not driven the last several years.  It was easier to replace a long lost title as a salvage vehicle, otherwise the vehicle would have had to be brought into running/driving condition and submitted for inspections, etc.  So for now the vehicle is not intended for registered highway use in Colorado, until the new owner brings it into running/driving condition, meets any other guidelines necessary, and applies for previously salvage title.  Please check with your local authorities if you intend to restore and/or make road worthy for public roads, or if any inspections or other procedures would be required.”

1967 Datsun Patrol Reno, NV **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Other 4x4s This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1200

I know nothing about these.  However, a quick search seems to confirm the seller’s information.  Moreover, this appears to be a good price for a rather rare rig.

“Selling my 1967 Datsun/Nissan Patrol. If you do a little research on this only around 2,600 of these awesome 4×4’s were imported throughout the mid 1960’s and here is one of the rarest. Most of the Patrols brought into the U.S. were badged as Nissans, but this is badged as a Datsun. It is completely original with the original 6cyl and manual transmission. Has a folding windshield and a rare removable hardtop. It is a project vehicle but is mostly complete except for the front seats and rear window glass, I do know someone with the front seats I can connect you with. It is not running at this point but the motor does turn over. Truck needs some TLC and you would have a very unique 4×4 unlike any you see out on the trails.”
