Jamboree on the Rubicon Trail. If you're curious about what to expect your

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.
