Any ideas?

Good afternoon all - newbie here!

This vehicle appeared at a classic car meet today in Benejofar, Spain. It carries no badges or identification whatsoever.
I was told that it is (possibly) an early Wrangler built as a one-off for a zoo or safari park somewhere in Europe.
Is this likely? and an anyone better informed than me shed any more light on it - age etc?
Many thanks

That is not a wrangler, What you have there is called a Jeep Commando. They were made between 1966 & 1973 by kaiser-Jeep. They are fairly rare
