1969 Jeep XJ002 Concept 01

Jeep XJ002 Bolide -

The Jeep XJ002 Bolide was a concept car made in 1969.

The word Bolide means "a large meteor that explodes in the atmosphere," which is maybe appropriate for a flashy concept car that never went into production.

It"s also an unusual name for a Jeep, but this was an unusual Jeep. Its plastic roof had bulges for head clearance.

Built on a Commando V6 chassis, the off-road sports car was shown at the 1970 NYC Auto Show, and reportedly the XJ002 still survives and is undergoing restoration.
