1975 Jeep Airport Tug with Thing

No, this doesn't come with a Volkswagen Thing, it comes with Thing from Fantastic Four. We have no idea why.


This is a CJ-5 that was modified to tow aircraft.  Why not?  Now that it's duties are over, it's just a really odd, narrow Jeep for the street or trail.  What's not to love?

Apparently, the four-wheel drive is still in place; so this can be used for just about anything.


Interior is, shall we say, spartan.  Fuel is supplied by plastic gas cans.


Here's another shot of that likeness of "Thing".  Note also the narrow windscreen and the jack mounted in front of it.


Yes, an interior can get more basic than that of a consumer-grade CJ-5; but only so much so.


The rear looks even less consumer-grade.  We're not sure this can be registered for the street.
