Can you do one Ferrari 635 GT 2 + 2 (also called "Queen Mary", 1967-71) with a massive Jeep Wagoneer (1963-91) connect? That's fine! The ultimate example is that Jerrari Wagoneer from 1969, originally commissioned by US casino mogul William F. "Bill" Harrah (1911-78) and something like the unofficial predecessor of the Purosangue is. Back then, Harrah wanted a luxury four-wheel drive that didn't exist so that he could drive from the gaming town of Reno to his mountain hut. So they took a 1969 Ferrari 365 GT 2 + 2 (first Ferrari with independent wheel suspension also at the rear) and put this together with a Jeep Wagoneer from 1969. The technology remained largely from the Jepp. He delivered that Transfer Case, which axes, which drum brakes and most of the body parts from the A-pillar. The Italians, however, donated the front. And there was also something from the athlete at the rear.

In addition to one retractable disc the four were installed on the off-roader tailpipes of the 635 GT. There are also a few special features in the cabin. The cockpit essentially comes from the Wagoneer that Aluminum sports steering wheel with a wooden rim and the Ferrari badge on the passenger side clearly come from the sports coupe.
And even that 4,4 liter Tipo V12 engine of the 365 GT 2 + 2 was installed for a certain time. It performed 320 PS and 377 Nm torque and had 3 downdraft twin carburettors (Weber 40 DFI) with it. It was a good 240 kilometers per hour in the 365 GT 2 + 2 in there without any problems.
now again equipped with a V8
In combination with the Three-speed automatic transmission and the all wheel drive des Wagoneer, the performance of the original 365 GT was out of the question. Later the original Wagoneer engine (Chevy engine, 390ci = 5,9l displacement) was built in again from 230 HP. And that is currently still installed. And the Jerrari Wagoneer from 1969 (which now even has an H mark and its own manufacturer category in the Federal Motor Vehicle Office) is now on the website Classic Driver sold.
