The Thing Shop did make a few kits. The red one was at Kubel Treffen Kentucky 2008. The car lived in Frankfort KY. Have not seen or heard from since.

Hello, some of the Departments of the Mexican Government ordered some of these Safaris Pick-Ups, like CFE (Federal Commission of Electricity), Agricultural Department, Forest and Garden Department etc. and also were offered to farmers and ranchers. I have some goodies for you, courtesy of some friends (Pedro Sarda, Gerardo DerSchreck González). Enjoy Smile

Here is the brochure: "The Safari Pick-Up can load with everything"

I was going to say, it looks like a cattle car more than a pick up truck. Or a Mexican police truck.
