Wrangler Registry

The Wrangler was a "rugged" one-piece buggy with the head lights mounted in the hood. It had a removable engine cover to allow the engine to be pulled without raising the body. Tail lights where built into the tail to give a smooth effect. It could be ordered with fiberglass bumpers and bucket seats.
