Prototypes
« on: May 22, 2011, 10:58:22 pm »
1.  The Willys BC didn't make it to production but this quarter ton served the same design criteria during the Viet-Nam War era.


2.  This vehicle was based on the VJ Jeepster and had an all aluminum body.


3.  Willys built the Quad, Bantam built a Reconnaissance Car, and Ford actually built these two pre-production prototypes submittals.


4.  The CJ-4MA was only shown as a prototype but the production version was this model.


5.  The "Creep" was shown in 57-8 but the civil service it was intended for ended up later buying this ubiquitous model.


6.  In 1990, the Jeep Freedom was based on this production model.


7.  The 1996 Jeep Casablanca concept was based on this production model.


8.  A four door concept vehicle called the Dakar eventually became this popular model.


9.  Of the three manufacturers who supplied early prototypes for what would become the WWII jeep, this one built fifty of their rear steer version.


10.  In 1954, Willys showed a model called the Stand Drive but two similar production models later had these Toyota-like model designations.


11.  The Ford XM-151 became this military quarter ton.

What?  Did I break the forum?  Over a month and no answers?


1.  The Willys BC didn't make it to production but this quarter ton served the same design criteria during the Viet-Nam War era.

The Willys Bobcat prototype never achieved the very light weight goal that the military required of a quarter ton capable of being carried to battle by a helicopter, but the AMC M422 and M422A1 Mighty Mite did.


2.  This vehicle was based on the VJ Jeepster and had an all aluminum body.

Three Alcoa Coupes were built on the Jeepster chassis.


3.  Willys built the Quad, Bantam built a Reconnaissance Car, and Ford actually built these two pre-production prototypes submittals.

The Pygmy was Ford's official submittal but they had an un-named "backup" waiting in the wings in case the Pygmy was not liked.  This vehicle is now commonly called the "Budd bodied Ford".


4.  The CJ-4MA was only shown as a prototype but the production version was this model.

The CJ-4MA is a long wheelbase ambulance prototype that later became the M170.


5.  The "Creep" was shown in 57-8 but the civil service it was intended for ended up later buying this ubiquitous model.

The post office bought the DJ-5 Dispatcher rather than the three wheeled Creep.


6.  In 1990, the Jeep Freedom was based on this production model.

Although it looks like a convertible MJ Comanche, the Freedom was actually based on a two door XJ.


7.  The 1996 Jeep Casablanca concept was based on this production model.

The Casablanca--with a hidden winch in the front bumper, a soft-cover sunroof, and round headlights, was also based on the XJ.


8.  A four door concept vehicle called the Dakar eventually became this popular model.

The Dakar raised such an uproar from the jeep faithful that instead of Jeep producing it as the TJ Wrangler, it became the basis for the KJ Liberty.


9.  Of the three manufacturers who supplied early prototypes for what would become the WWII jeep, this one built fifty of their rear steer version.

Rear steer Ford GP's are very rare today.


10.  In 1954, Willys showed a model called the Stand Drive but two similar production models later had these Toyota-like model designations.

The Stand Driver was based on the Willys 4x2 pickup with a large box on the back and a standing position for the poor delivery driver.  The Fleet Vans that Jeep produced--with traditional seating for the driver--are designated FJ-3 and FJ-3A.


11.  The Ford XM-151 became this military quarter ton.

Ford's "replacement" for the "traditional" quarter tons that the military used was the M151 MUTT (Military Utility Tactical Truck)

OK.

1.  In our bicentennial year, AMC produced the Electruck.  Powered by two 27 volt batteries instead of a gas engine, this vehicle holds what model designation?

2.  We all know that Elvis Presley owned a DJ-3A Surrey Gala.  What other jeep model did he spend a lot of time in, specifically in the years 1958-60?

3.  This model of aluminum bodied jeep is used as a prop at both Walt Disney World and Disneyland's Jungle Cruise attraction.

4.  Name two models of jeep that have predominantly horizontal grills slots.  (Note that the horizontal trim added to later model Willys pickups grills is not an answer to this question.)

5.  Name a jeep that has 6 vertical/oval grill slots.
