WWII-themed Wrangler concept for Jeep’s 75th birthday

18 July 2016

A commemorative 75th Anniversary Jeep Wrangler concept rolled down the assembly line in Toledo, Ohio today. The Jeep pays homage to the original Willys MB,  with no B-pillar, no doors, no roll bars and the styling very much in step with the original military vehicle.

The jeep has the 419 area code stenciled on the bumper and date on the bonnet and rides on 16-inch steel wheels that are wrapped in 32-inch non-directional tires.  Vintage-looking hood latches, steel front and rear bumpers with tow hooks, and low back canvas seats all complete the look.
