When I was a kid, the toy I wanted most in the world was my own Power Wheels car. I wanted one so bad that at one point I tried to sell everything I owned, which consisted of a few stuffed animals and random toys. I was willing to give up everything I had to get one of those Power Wheels. Sadly, my dream was never realized. I went through my child hood without ever knowing the thrill that comes with driving your own plastic car. Well a dad in England decided he wanted to give his two daughters a vehicle of their own to drive around. Only he didn’t go out and buy a Power Wheels car. Instead, he bought an old mobility scooter and turned it into an old United States Army Jeep!

The front wheel arches and sides were next.

To make the sides, he cut 1 piece of plywood the entire length of the scooter, and to the maximum height that would be required. He then removed the wheels and attached it into position. He then used a series of dining plates, a dog bowl, and dumbbell weights to make the curves.

He made a hinged flat bed for the Jeep as well. It will allow both his children to utilize the vehicle. He left an opening for access to the charging port.

Next it was time to deal with the steering. His goal was to use as many of the original scooter parts are possible so if he ever wanted to convert it back into a scooter it would be fairly simple.

He was actually able to rig it so a 30mm socket fit tight onto the original scooter steering stem.
