Very interesting article from

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.
