Wait isn't this the same guy that designed the T-25 everyman's car? Whatever happened to that?

What is, a flat pack truck ?

Is that something new in some parts of the world ?

I mean, wasn't it Volkswagen that had a flat pack truck based on the type ll ? Back in the 1960's ?

And a lot of contractors remove the bed from a standard pick up truck and put a flat bed or a stake bed on the back.

Then there is the Dihatsu & Suzuki variations that have a forward cab and a flat pack bed.

So how is this the world's first ?

Not the first, WW2 Jeep's and for many years Land-Rover's were shipped CKD. British Bullshine Crapologists at it again.

They write it up good, (sales) but I have difficulty believing that a 2 wheel drive can manage that well in the mud?

It's not a light vehicle, 1 ton they say, and arguably more than some of the many 4 wheel drives which abound.
Toyota, Daihatsu, Suzuki, let alone the home grown Landrover, (deceased?)

I wish it well, Landrover reborn? But sales will also struggle I think to gain traction.

jt.

A man stops by the house of his friend Jim and asks Jims wife "Is Jim there?"
His wife says he has gone out to pick some cotton.
Next day the man tries again, "Is Jim there?"
The wife says He has gone to pick cotton

Next day he returns, "Is Jim there?"
His wife says, "he died in the fields yesterday, and we buried him in the back yard."

The man goes round the back to read the headstone which read:

" Jim. Gone, but not for cotton."

A reinvention in a DY format of the Steyr-Puch Haflinger or Pinzgauer? Not a 4x4? Whaaaat!
