How about this? It's mounted on a 1945 Weasel chassis.

I'm sure there was a reason for this. Or, did someone do it because they could?

Well, there WAS a bit of flirtation between VW and Studebaker at one time. Maybe this was a sorta "What if" prototype![}:)]

Well, I think even we have to admit if a VW bus is more comfortable than anything, it would be a stock weasel.

It looks like the transport the Robinson family used in the Lost In Space TV programme.
I would have loved to have had it last winter.

Lotsa Larks!

Having had the misfortune to endure a 400 mile round trip in a VW van back in '71, I can't imagine the Weasel being much worse in the way of comfort or performance. [xx(]

It would be a fine rig for climbing Mount Washinton in N.H. on those really bad winter days.Those folks have to man (people) the weather station year around. I think I saw old pictures of rigs like that they used to use in the museum on top of the mountain.

Here's another shot:

I guess it proves that if there's a will, there's a way. I just wish the body wasn't so banged up. It would be a LITTLE more respectable.

You could have the paint job AND the armament and sell it to Greenpeace!

After looking at the pix, the thing seems like the idea really works.
