Re: Vintage 4wd Pictures:Other Makes

Ah, one a them little foreign jobbies, ey? Cute. I like it. Never saw one before either. The only foreign vehicle, other than old VWs, I ever bought was a new '87 Samurai. My first new vehicle. It was for my wife to commute to nursing school in. That thing was neat. I figured I'd build a serious off road toy with it when she was done with it, but traded it in for a '90 Blazer when she started working. I'd still like to build a cool Samurai toy

Not mine

new '87 Samurai
One of my wife's cousins bought a new one back in that era. They came up to see us where we were logging on private ground and came in the back way (4x4 only) since there was a locked gate below.

We went with them on a scenic drive but damn! he drove that little thing too fast. I thought for a bit that he was going to flip it and roll down a thousand foot cliff and kill all four of us.

Other than that it was a cute and capable little jeep.

The IHs look like what I’d imagine Studebaker might produce. Studebaker isn’t in spell check btw.

Re: Vintage 4wd Pictures:Other Makes

Spellcheck seems weak in working man's vocabulary. They tell me I am misspelling words I have used all my life. I rely on typing a word in the Google search box for a better real world way to check spelling.

If the Internationals weren't known for being hard to get parts for I would have had one. Hence the reason I am a Chevy man. Best parts network on earth. I had the '69 Dodge W200. That was hard getting parts for back in '77. Then came Chevys.

dodge was building a heck of a truck in the '60s but not many wanted them. Perhaps behind the time in styling, but ahead of their time in build. Dodge offered a 1t 4wd in single or dual wheel/regular cab or crew cab, a shortbed 3/4t 4wd in regular or crewcab, the W500 medium duty, and the original Power Wagon was still offered into the mid-60s along side of the w-series 4wds

I'd own it! Check out the lug pattern... beefy axles under that shortbed

How about this wimpy thang? I do like the first one better, but I'd own it

Matt's Off Road Recovery is building a Corvair station wagon recovery vehicle.

Cute, but seems like a dumb idea to me. I would have started with a K5 Blazer converted to 4 wheel coil and link suspension, and maybe 40" tires.

It looks well built, fully capable with neat vintage style. I'd like to see it in action.

Nice to see a little more FSJ content. It's been a while since I posted a pic of my old bucket. Nothing radical, but lots of fun.

Doesn't need to be radical to be one of the coolest trucks shown in this thread. I love everything about it. Trice Nuck!!!
