    60s jeep cj
    Looks like an 80's build with lots of chrome...I dunno what's up with that padded dash thing.
    Overall it's pretty nice & probably worth 1/2 the asking price....

    explain this.

    looks like a cigarette lighter on the right side, above the grab bar. is the indent there to you can actually grab it? and on the left side of the pad, looks like maybe an ashtray?

    When I was young we used to give motorcycle metal parts to a company putting chromium on them, for better look.
    It was not very expensive. Quality control? All seems clean but in 10 days maybe covered by rust.
    The padded part is a mystery, what for? I never had a contact with this part of the body on rough road.
    But if wet, it won't last long. And a Jeep is made to be wet sometimes... Except if, like this one, it stays in a garage or is driven only in subways.:lol::banghead:

    Looks like the stock drawbar chromed too.

    Dash looks like a junkyard piece from something else "close enough" and bolted on.

    Front side markers on the hood are from a British Leyland vehicle, MG, Jaguar, etc. I'm not into all the bling. I haven't seen those alloy wheels in a long time.

    A bit too "Indonesian Taxi" for me, which is too bad because there is a nice jeep under all that clutter.
