jeep was built by harold johnson at toledo jeep plant its a prototype without a vin when it was given to my grandpa as a gift at retirement he had it titled as built and vin says 001 jeep im sure never planned on it seeing the road and probably should have been destroyed but instead my granpa got it and the family drove it for years now it needs restored, my grandpa passed away but im sure there are records that can prove the validity of the truck without a way to establish its value ive not pusued it but i can tell you its real and was built by jeep and my wife and i plan on having it restored to exact factory condition show quality.

Welcome to the land of empty pockets and unfinished projects...

You definitely found a unique one.
I will be watching for more pics. Go ahead and start yourself a Photobucket.com account. it will save you lots of headaches in the future. VERY easy to work with and gobs of free storage.

Best guess, is he used a 2 door NT (narrow trac) cherokee as the base for the cab, likley used the same interior and seats (flip forward Cherokee style) to allow access to the rear, frame is likely from the Cherokee back ~1.5' from the rear cross member then J-truck rear grafted in.
Rear bulk head is a mystery, likely 90% J-truck and 10% custom to fit the roof line.
What engine did he use?
A few shots of the interior would give us an idea if he started with a base Cherokee of one of the more optioned rigs (but with access to the parts bin, it could be anything)

That is interesting. Maybe they were trying to figure out if they could do what ford did.

When you gut it out to do the full resto take a TON of pics. There are a bunch of us that have done/are doing extra cabs and quad cabs. To actually see how the factory had approached it would be invaluable!!! Thanks!

Welcome to the forum!
Please pardon the Naysayers.

It was nice to meet and befriend you on Facebook.
I hope because we live close to each other, that I would be granted the opportunity to come over, visit and look at your grandfathers truck.

As I am close, I would be willing to help in anyway that I can with your project.
Trust me, I have been given a lot of help from many members over the years and I would be honored to give back.

Hello all,
I went down and saw this truck in person on Saturday. What a piece of History!!! Still has the Toledo Tech AMC stickers in the windshield and an experimental VIN tag! Mike was kind enough to put up with me asking a million and one questions. I've got some pictures that I took that I put up on Photobucket:
http://s689.photobucket.com/albums/v...%20Crew%20Cab/
Mike is a talented body man so I have no doubts this piece of history will be preserved. The cab was done by mixing a 2dr chero roof line and J-truck cab and the whole thing sits on a standard 8ft bed frame (131" wheel base). The bed is a little close to the cab, but that can be fixed. They did use chero seats that flip forward and some fold down from the side jump seats.

Zack

If Jeep would of put extend cab into production, J Trucks might of made it while longer.

Very cool, the old restore, vs preserve argument has to be playing out here.
Looks like Jeep did not know quite what to do on the roof line bulk head, intersection either (tough spot to get right without some custom stampings).

Would love to be there when your DMV tries to issue a title, those people will have fits. "What do you mean the vin only has 3 numbers, there has to be more?"
