|Jeep Brute? Good-bye Saraha, See Unlimited, More Willys|
One of our spys recently wrote in to us letting us know that perhaps DaimlerChrysler was considering building a Jeep similar to the AEV Brute. The plan was to use the assembly plant where the Plymouth Prowler were built to build a limited number of Brutes. Jeep had borrowed the Red AEV Brute prototype that was shown at Camp Jeep and were experimenting with the vehicle on the assembly line. Everything was a 'Go' until a last minute decision by some high executives, and the project was cancelled. In addition, Jeep approached AEV to have AEV produce the hardtop used on the Brute for the proposed new Scrambler. You can check out the AEV Brute here.
