JEEP FOR TEENAGERSIn the environment of Russian Amateur designers a lot of those who gladly builds original cars, not only for themselves but also for their children. The website “Modelstructure” published and will continue to post photos and descriptions of these children’s cars.


This lovely jeep was built for his daughter’s teenage E. Kolesnikov from Krasnodar.


For nearly two decades Edward E. is professionally engaged in repair of bodies of cars. So that knowledge, experience and skills he does not hold. Yeah and recruitment is required for handmade components and details of the problem for him was not. That’s why the jeep for ten years my daughter was fantastic!

I built a small car just. In the garage put daughter Lyudmila on a stool, looked at her, hanging on the wall, and pictures depicting American jeep “Wrangler”, an example, figured possible dimensions. To work it took a steel plate hammer, metal shears, and spot welding. There were suitable components and parts.


The body is made entirely of steel sheet with spot welding and under the units, which were in my possession. This petrol engine from a scooter Suzuki with a capacity of 6 HP and a working volume of 50 cm3 with the variator and starter motor (installed in the engine compartment in front of and connected with the rear axle of the chain transmission); suspension from wheelchairs motorized wheelchairs (bearing wheels with hubs and brake cylinders, rear axle with front and rear gears, hand brake); brake master cylinder and hoses from the car VAZ-2108; lights from some Japanese cars; “moskovichevskoe” front; standard battery capacity of 55 A h
