Did I show this? If I showed it twice it's probably because there is nothing interesting or desirable about it
One of the first things I noticed about this was the fuel fill and that lead me to wonder how much fuel it holds? 75 gallons? 100 gallons? 200 gallons?
Then I started thinking about what its operational weight was? Because I'm sure they loaded it with all the tools you could cram in those boxes. And four people. I discounted the camper weight as it was a later add on. So rough guess fully loaded 11,000 lbs.
Wait a minute look at the camper. It goes all the way over the crew cab!!!!!!! It was orginal!!!!???? Yikes better add another 3500 lbs for a loaded camper of that size and age. Had to be an oil company rig as they were the only ones who could afford to keep it filled up.
Truly cool.

Re: Vintage 4wd Pictures:Other Makes

Yeah, heavy, long, and low. Not your ideal formula for the best off road design. I love that thing anyway. Definitely a relic to me. I guess I could afford to run it to the campground less than 10 miles from here, but there's no gas station between us.

I know I could use this!

Re: Vintage 4wd Pictures:Other Makes

That's a sweet rig too! I know exactly what I'd do to both of them though.

I think so. That's one thing about Dodge back then, they put a lot of effort into trucks. They not only had 1t 4wds, the 1t trucks were built like a medium duty...such as the '92-up C3500HDs. This truck is an all factory W500 crew cab & chassis. They were actually ahead of their time with their trucks that seemed outdated

I've always wanted a Willys pickup. Never wanted a Ford. But I want one of these F75s

Re: Vintage 4wd Pictures:Other Makes

They sure do. I know about those RH drive Jeeps. They were made bt Mitsubishi, I think. They, or whoever it was, bought the design from Willys. Flat fender, like CJ2As, right? So that dealer is in Radford? These are Brazilian. Here ya go, feast your eyes:
