I have seen pictures people using a grand wagoner and adding a few 715 items.

Yea i don't know if I would chop up the rear and add a bed, but I was thinking of doing an m715 type/inspired front end full turbo diesel resto mod and built custom steel fender flares to clear the k30/f350 axles

They certainly did nice work! Is that a right hand steering wheel?

Why, though, did they keep that the Tornado engine? That's what killed the 715 and caused the Army to rebuild M35s for Vietnam.

It is a Diesel engine. Maybe a later Asian version. I know KIA is building a diesel version - KM450 for the S.Korea military.

The website is from Indonesia

Also if they spent big bucks on the build, they may have had a custom valve cover made.

I saw the exact same link on another website sometime back. One of the persons that commented on that post there stated that they identified the engine, iirc, as a Toyota diesel and that the Jeep logos were just glued or epoxied to the Toyota valve cover. Also, again iirc, that some of the interior was id'ed as Toyota.

Gotta give them credit, but I would have been better to start with a KIA M450 series truck.

Maybe he can get KIA to do an import worthy version of this with AC, as the KM450 does seem to have AC!:)
