    ...agreed. A one-off with specialty parts is not a good idea unless you are able to reproduce those parts. Add to that the "look at me" factor and you've made yourself a prime target.

    That would be why the military had the jeep built to their specs, over the protests of the car builders. Battlefield repairs.
    Take a wheel off this one. A windshield off that one, doors as needed, and swap other parts as needed. Interchangable parts, made junk back onto transportation.

    Korean War Dodge Weapons Carrier was 6x6, and also came in an Ambulance version. They came with PTO Winch, and a underbelly Winch Cable path to the rear. Flathead 6cyl, got 10 MPG, and Top Speed Downwind, with a Tailwind, was 60MPH.

    One thing to keep in mind less parts less problems. 4 cylinders, manual trans, keep it simple
