Arrow BAW 'Jeep Liberty' pick-up

Very interesting article from thetycho.com.

Scrolling trough news archives from carmakers is mostly boring but can sometimes be very interesting, today I found a Liberty pick up truck at Beijing Auto Works' website...

It is based on the last gen Liberty and does not have any name or logo on the bonnet, neither a Jeep nor a BAW nor a Beijing-Jeep's.

The car was presented, among some others, as a gift for the China Military Museum in Beijing in January 2008. That's a little more than a year ago now, I will sure go back to the museum this weekend to see whether this strange vehicle is still on display.

I guess it is a prototype from the good old Beijing-Jeep days, a Chinese/American joint venture that is now history. That problably makes this Liberty pick up the one and only in the world, if I find it this weekend I'll let you all know on Monday.

Great find Martin!
A unique cab style that would look great with a matching bed sporting large wheel opening flares. Surprised that it hasn't been copied and popped up somewhere else in the Middle Kingdom.
As for the joint venture, I haven't heard how the threesome of BAIC, Daimler and Chrysler have finalized the latter's departure. There had to be an equity settlement of some kind along the way.

Looks unique for me because of its design and its headlights... unlike other chinese cars that really looks like a copycat from other cars...
