Jeep Willys with Tank Tracks
Bolt on tank tracks on a modified Jeep Willys powered by a Buick V6 engine.
The Tracks were manufactured by a company called "A. F. Wagner Industries
Inc." of concord California. They were made sometime during the mid 60s
and there was only 6 sets made and were apparently expensive and thus may
be the reason there were so few made. They are called "Wagner-Trac" and
were made specifically as a set of tank tracks for a jeep with a wheelbase
of 81 inches. The wheelbase is not adjustable so the wheelbase is critical
and just like a tank you would have to install turning brakes to drive the
Jeep because the steering is null and void as soon as you bolt them on.
They are all steel construction so were probably designed for offroad only.

SAS Willys jeep rebuild part 1
Restoration of a 1944 Willys MB jeep. The body tub was a rotten Hotchkiss
one, so a repro body tub was used. Chassis, axles, engine, gearbox, grill
and many little parts are genuine WW2. The Jeep is being built to represent
one used by 4 SAS as used behind the lines in Brittany, France. 1 and 2
SAS, were British, 3 and 4 SAS were French, and 5 SAS were from Belgium.
Many hours were spent studying original photographs to make an authentic
replica. The first 10 or so jeeps were modified in Scotland. 4 were
parachuted into France, the rest were brough in by glider. After Brittany
was mostly liberated, the SAS regrouped in Vannes for a refit. A convoy of
40 jeeps and Bedford trucks were driven from the UK via Normandy, and
modified by local garages to the individual crews requirements.
Consequently no 2 jeeps are identical. See my next videos as the
