Anyone know what this is?

I saw this recently where I live. I hung around a while but the owner didn't show up. Anyone know what make/model Jeep it is? My research on the net leads me to think some year of Willy's Jeep truck. Second pic is closest i've found, a 1948 Willy's but not the same. If you can identify it please do. I want one lol.

Its a Kaiser Jeep M715, its a 1 1/4 ton military truck from the late '60s. That one is definitely modified and despite its color very pretty. They also made an enclosed back ambulance version the M725.

You guys are right, thanks. M715 , wish I could have talked to the guy that owned it. I might track one of these puppies down and rebuild it. Awesome Jeep. Turns out it was a militarized version of the J10 civilian Jeep truck. Some models called the "Honcho". Here : "Military versions of the civilian Jeep pickup included the M715 and M725. They were built under contract for nations in addition to the United States. The idea was to reduce costs by starting from a civilian truck and sharing parts with normal production-line truck to make a “Commercial Utility Cargo Vehicle” (CUCV) for the military as a 5/4 ton tactical vehicle.[1]

It looks like a hossed up version of a Jeep Scrambler, which I used to own and regret ever selling. Man, how I would love to rebuild one of them.
