The lady in Red.
What an impressive machine this is. When we talk FUN cars this is a FUN car.
High on its big wheels, chrome bumpers telling you to not mess with this one. Open hood to ensure even more FUN.
The JEEP Wrangler is a real 4X4. We will not refer to his cousin the one of WW2 and we will not mention that all other marques called jeeps are in fact no jeeps at all, there is only one JEEP and that’s this one.
The Jeep is a very easy to drive vehicle, whether you hit the asphalt road are going off road. Everybody can drive it.
About this car
Look at the pictures. What do you see? This very bright red colour and the big chrome bumpers are telling you everything. High on her wheels, elegant and impressive at the same time. A head turner indeed on car shows and in the streets. Wherever you go, you are the talk of the town.
The bodyline is square and clear, front side and back.
On the outside
As mentioned before, the colour is a great choice although not the original one. Walking towards her gives you the shivers. The body panels are very well. All components are there, lights, glass, etc and in good condition. All door gaps are very good. Doors open and closes on the spot as does the hood and boot. What’s that logo on the back? Does that say Texas? Indeed it does. Sun is shining and the roof has to come down. Magnificent look and room for all of us.
What a character. Coming closer you are attracted to get in yourself.
On the inside
Opening the door you can see the brutality of the interior. Everything is there. A bit rougher but then again she is a Wrangler. Getting behind the wheel heartbeat is getting a bit higher. Turn the switch and she starts at the button. 4.0 litre is talking to you. Well not only you, the neighbours will be warned too. Your passengers next and in the back will be holding their breath. Adventure is in front of you.
The seats aren’t small and hold you in place. The inside trim is good, inside floor and trunk trim is replaced.
Open the motor compartment and you will see a very down to earth 4.0 litre engine that is well maintained and has some new parts like the carburettor and the mechanical fuel pump. All saying the previous owner was a mechanic that understood the car. The engine is running and telling us it’s fit and healthy breathing. It spins like a sewing machine, well a heavy duty that is. The exhaust is good. Very healthy chassis, all elements there and in good condition. See for yourself at the 360 picture.
At this moment we are investigating the history of the Jeep. We were told she travelled through Europe and came back via Texas. We will come back with more history in a short time.
What we think
This car is a well restored example with respect for originality except for the colour. But the colour is even better than the original one, so. It is really an opportunity for the lover of real JEEPs. A head turner every time you will be on the road, on the beach or hitting the mountains. For the youngsters among us who are attracted to these kind of vehicles, this is the one to have to enter the Classic Wheels World.
Very neatly priced we think this one will find a next keeper soon.
