When we hear about anniversary concepts, natural thought that comes in mind is that the company might have modified their current model with some futuristic touches and may be anniversary badges all over the body. However, Jeep has just gone opposite when they decided to make Jeep Wrangler Salute concept to celebrate company’s 75th anniversary.
The Jeep Wrangler Salute is all basics and based on Wrangler Sport with a 3.6-litre V6 engine mated to a six-speed manual gearbox. Painted in the same olive-drab color scheme, the Salute concept does not have roof, any doors or B-pillars. It rides on 16-inch steel wheels with old fashioned tires and has steel front and rear bumpers with tow hooks.
The Salute concept is built exactly 75 years after Willys-Overland Motor Co. was awarded the U.S. government contract to build the first Willys MB and to mark the date, the concept has the date painted on it’s hood in big white fonts.
Sadly, there’s only one picture available of this concept.
