Jeep 'W & W Holzbau'
US classic of the W&W Holzbau series
Originating from surplus US military supplies, the prototypes was given a new purpose in civilian life be it in the handicraft trade or in forestry. Now complementing the W&W Holzbau series, the Jeep also comes with a cable winch for added refinement. WIKING founder Friedrich Peltzer decided early on to make a miniature model of a Jeep later moulding it after the Kaiser Jeep CJ5 and its military version, the M38-A1. Its signature features included the rounded fenders, a bonnet with an elevated contour in the middle and a split windscreen with wiper arms that are mounted at the top. An essential part of WIKING's product range for many years, the model is now staging a comeback as a version designed for the handicraft trade.
