Jeep took a 1968 M-715 military vehicle and improved on it in every way.
Following last year's very cool Wagoneer Roadtrip, Jeep found a 1968 M-715 on Craigslist to serve as the foundation for this year's resto-mod.
The Gladiator-based M-715 military vehicle was completely redone with the exception of the original frame, doors, windshield and parts of the cab being salvaged, but modified for the concept.
On the outside, a carbon fiber front end replaces the old steel panels and the convertible soft-top roof is cut-down 3.5 inches.
At the rear, a custom aluminum bed is made up of perforated panels and water jet cut pieces on the sides.
Wood slats are used on the floor. For more body protection, functional rock rails and a modified Gladiator Rubicon steel front bumper are installed.
The whole vehicle wears a brushed metal finish and rides on 20-inch beadlock wheels covered with 40-inch Maxxis mud terrain tires.
The cabin adopts new Jeep Wrangler seats without headrests and aluminum, water-jet-cut bits on the dash and door panels.
To house the transmission and transfer case, designers used an old 8-71 supercharger to continue the Five-Quarter's industrial aura inside.
The floors inside the cabin are coated with bed liner to up durability.
Power for the Five-Quarter comes from a 6.2-liter supercharged Hemi V8 delivering 707 horsepower.
