A nice cast from MBX, the ‘Jungle Crawler’, was based on a 1941 Dodge WC53 ‘Carryall’ - a widely used army truck in World War II. Here’s a pic, and another.

I got the rubber wheels from a from a worn out HW Land Cruiser. It was a bit tricky putting them on this chassis because the body is mounted high and the wheel wells (where the axles go) are a little deep. Never thought a small screwdriver would come in handy... but it did, and I was able to ‘pry open’ the mounts a little to put in the axles. :)
