Pretty cool. Basically looks like they tossed a car body onto a tractor.

That should be REQUIRED watching for any JEEP engineer....

A little family history: Grand dad loved old Dodges, I have pictures of a couple just like that one...
My uncle and a friend build up an old DeSoto Sedan about a 33 or 34 vintage (this was in the 40's ) They used two transmissions end to end, and the old wooden wheels were still on the car...They used this car for an elk hunting rig, in LOW/LOW it would crawl up hills.... It was amazing. Around here ( NW Oregon ) in those days the roads were just logging roads, many not even graveled....
As a Youngster in High School ( 60's ) My friend had a Model "A" Ford Pick up...This frame was shortened up so the rear tires were right behind the seats. It had the original wire wheels ,narrow tall tires..Original 4 cyl. engine and trans. That rig was practically unstoppable in the woods !! We could drive thru mud holes that were deep as the doors and had water up to the seat cushions....It just chugged along..
Deep ruts were not a problem, drive right thru em....Snow was no problem, we had tire chains. In those days we had some jeeps in the woods, some old WWII weapons carriers ( dodges ) some old 3/4 dodges and a few power wagon dodges as well as a few other rigs like common 4x4 pick ups... That old Model "A" put em to shame as far as driving around. We drove around many of em that were stuck in mud or on trails.....
There is a lot to be said about those skinny tires ( JC Whitney Knobbies ) and all that ground clearance , and the low gearing....
The old Model A had a throttle that could be set at any RPM and you could set it to just chug along and all ya had to do was steer.....
That ol Model A is still around in a barn I think, I'll see if I can get pictures some day.
