I seem to remember the article showed two designs of front end, either Landrover, or Willys Jeep.

Yes ... you're right ! I went further and made a Land Rover " lightweight " / airportable type bonnet and front panel , 2 hillbilly motors and a split back axle for 2 wheel drive without a diff. Gearstick was an off on off switch switching the relays for reverse..

Did the original have a Sinclair motor?

There is a Landrover one along the street from me, it's had a fair bit of use, don't know about the mechanics of it, the dad of the family is a Landy collector, only 3 at the moment.
