https://boston.craigslist.org/gbs/cto/d/athol-1946-jeep-cj2a-custom-one-owner/7030708047.html

“Bought this Jeep new. Kept a few things original. It is one of a kind. In 2010 took it off the road, took the 350 out and bought a new 350 4 Bolt Main and ripped it down. Every nut, bolt, gasket and more… and was built by a Chevy master mechanic of 38 years. Everything was done from the heads, lifters, cam, new transfer case, rear end, 411 gears, way too much to list all of the work done. Invested over $20,000 between 2010-2014 and another $15,000 between 2015-2018. Top of the line parts put in it over the years. Money was no issue when it came to building this Jeep. Once you see it, you will know it’s a one of a kind. It was set up to race eighth mile or quarter mile, dunes or track but it still has never been raced. It is street legal. For the past 40 years it has never been driven in the snow or rain. This Jeep is over 70 years old. Never find another one like it! Asking $16,500 or best offer. Open to SUV trade of same value or partial cash payment. I am on older gentleman so please no late calls. To avoid scams I will not answer any texts, I’d rather speak to a person!”

“This is worth any Jeep fans consideration. ‘52 Willys Jeep M38, Built March, 1952. This would make a great father-son project.
This Jeep served its late owner very well, taking him well south of Panama and back around 1980. There are several very nice features, including factory optional heater. Roll bar, soft top frame, doors, fiberglass; hood, locking front hubs, and un-installed fiberglass
front fenders. Very nicely done, a very long time ago, there was a ‘60’s GM Iron Duke, 2.5 L 53 CID L4 engine, complete with the alternator and wiring harness, retro-fitted into this appreciating classic. The engine needs at least a rebuild. Brakes and suspension will need servicing. Nice aftermarket turn signal/hazard switch, 7 gauge instrument panel, alloy wheels, good tread on old tires. Stored partially covered for last 35 years. Very little rust, besides the front fenders. I have a current Oklahoma Title and tag in hand.
Priced to sell quickly. $1295 FIRM. $1500 if you want to negotiate”

RLT Development’s Husky R.V. Jeep Kit

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features, Unique Jeeps, Unusual • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: This post about the rare Husky jeep kit has been updated with four more images at the bottom.

============================

Originally posted August of 2013:

1991-husky-look-a-like-brochure2

Sometimes called the Husky R.V. or the R.L.T. Husky, this Jeep Kit was sold out of the UK and used atop a Ford Taurus or Ford Escort Mark IV (and other cars?). It was available for an unknown period during the 1980s and 1990s.

“R.V. – Rugged and Versatile aptly describes these tough, reliable and inexpensive all-weather vehicles. The unique exterior MDF body combines great strength with structural rigidity and will not rust, crack, craze or splinter, yet is easy to repair.

The sturdy steel chassis, with substantial (de)fenders front & rear, is built for long life, stability and to cope with rugged conditions. Seating can vary from 2 fronts with a rear load space, which can be fitted with forward, rearward or inward facing rear seats, accessed via a ‘walk-thru’ from the front can be accommodated by simple modification to the cutting and assembly process, or the rear zip up rear hood window, with or without the optional opening tailgate

Fold-flat windscreen. Ford front engine/RWD ensures safe predictable handling, amazing traction and reliable mechanics. Nimble as an Escort, the HUSKY turns tighter than a London Taxi and yet provides a comfortable ride even over rough terrain. Safety options include a hefty Roll Bar, front Nudge Bar and chassis mounted Side Impact bars/steps”

Badger Fiberglass Body in South Africa R3,500

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: .

This body, branded a “Badger”, looks to be the same body style as the GP Team’s body. The branding was place on the hood, tailgate, and windshield. The Badger appears designed for the VW chassis, while the GP Team body looks designs for a standard Willys chassis.

It suggests to me that GP Team may have bought out the Badger company and removed the Badger brand in favor of Willys.
