What the heck is a 1971 Bulldog???

A guy is selling one here but isn't home. I'm curious as hell what this is. He claims it is rare and is asking $8500.

Thanks,

Bryan

Maybe a '72 Bullnose?

'72 to '73 Jeep Commandos are commonly called Bullnoses due to the redesign by AMC (love it or hate it)

'67 to '71 (Made by Kaiser) had a more "Jeep-like" front clip.

Re: What the heck is a 1971 Bulldog???

Could it be a Mack pick-up, I think mack made a pick-up years ago. When I was a little guy I seen a pick-up with a mack bull dog on the front and that could be where the bull dog name is coming from. You didn't say that it was a jeep,but if it was ,could it be one of those pick-up FC's, with the flat front. Let us know what it is.

[/ QUOTE ]1. There is a little truth to that.
2. I visited the MAC Truck Factory in 1952,
3. My dad was buying a truck from MAC,
4. And took delivery at the factory.
5. It wasn't his first truck,
6. And He and I got a tour of the factory.
7. This was only 7 years after WWII,
8. And companies were expanding,
9. And they were seeking new markets.
10. By making new products.
11. During the tour a VP showed us
12. An experiential MACK Car.
13. AFAIK it never went into production.
14. I still have the MACK Bulldog ornament,
15. That was given to me during the tour,
16. It's going on the CJ's hood,
17. As soon as it's finished...
18. So I guess it will remain in the house.

Re: What the heck is a 1971 Bulldog???

My great uncle was the VP of Mack trucks in the 30's. They did make 5 "Mac Junior" pickups in 1935. My grandfather had one. I have a pic of my mother standing on the running boards of the straight 8 pickup with the Mack insigna on the side. It looked similar to a Hudson. I remember seeing the rusted out shell on the farm in NE PA. when I was a kid. Since then, I have all through the woods where it used to sit, and can't find it anywhere. I will look and see if I can find that pic and post it.
