And perhaps the most notable of these was the Kaiser Jeep M715 (1967 in this case).
It was built for war but later used by fire departments and the government as a workhorse 4X4 truck.
It is heavy (at least 8500 pound), with big and brawny Dana axels and 35 inch tires. It can go just about anywhere – where it can fit width-wise.
TFL is considering taking this fine example and bringing it back to life. It’s a half finished project with the original 6-cylinder swapped out for a more powerful and modern Chevy 350 V8.
This means we’d be doing restoration and modifications to the truck: 1) very cool and 2) very off-road worthy but note so original. It would also mean a substantial amount of work getting the powertrain running, and the truck put back together.
Do you want us to take on this project in a series of TFLtruck restoration videos culminating in a big reveal at the 2015 Moab Easter Jeep Safari?
Let us know in the comments below and please let us know if you would be willing to throw in some financial support as part of TFL’s Patreon campaign to pay for the 1967 Kaiser Jeep M715 and the cost of the restoration.
In exchange we’d produce a weekly video series and put your name boldly on the truck.
Thanks for letting us know.
