Rough & Ready: ’99 Encore M151 Jeep
An Encore is basically a new jeep-like vehicle built for recreational use. I know many guys who own original M151’s that would like to own an Encore to use as a daily driver and trail jeep. The bodies are thicker gauge, better built and you don’t risk beating up an original jeep. The quality of the bodies increased when Sandy Engineering started building them. The mechanicals are robust to say the least. There is a durable and torquey 4-cylinder engine, 4-wheel drive and the ability to crawl out of almost any bog. Well. today’s find is really a find. It was sitting in the shop at Auto Turismo Sport. I was drawn to it. It is shiny black and has all the special water-fording equipment. I was told it could pass through 5 feet of water but who would be that crazy to try! Now here comes the remarkable part – it has 314 original miles on it and it looks it. It is spotless. The seller wants $20,500 for it so act quickly! We were told these were over $30,000 new with this equipment. Send me an email or call me and I’ll put you in touch with Marty.
