1995 Jeep Wrangler Sahara Jurassic Park – Click above for high-res image gallery

Some lucky hoon will be getting his Dr. Grant on in the most authentic Jurassic Park recreation Jeep Wrangler we've ever seen. The graphics are painted on, rather than being rendered in vinyl, which means this Jeep's look is there to stay. Even the complicated and expensive light bar is functional.

Underneath its prehistoric bodywork sits a 118,000-mile 1995 Jeep Wrangler Sahara with an impressive list of new or refurbished parts, not to mention rare-for-YJs air conditioning. The thing sold for a heady $9,000, which is way more than any reasonable person should spend on a 118K-mile 1995 Jeep under normal circumstances. But with this level of workmanship and the important maintenance done, the figure doesn't sound so horrifying.

      Jeep Wranglers have the highest resale value of any mass produced vehicle. Bet the buyer sells it to someone else for a couple thousand more.

        I wish , but that jeep wont go for less than $30 k if it is for sale at all, and I have a feeling it is untouchable. In other words build your own this one is probably not for sale.

      If this the actual movie jeep it is the one Dennis Nedry aka Wayne Knight drove trying to catch the boat to leave the island.

      I have a '95 Sahara and have sort of pondered doing this ever since I realized that it is the same base color (Sand) as the Jurassic Park Jeeps.

      I've seen that driving around my area here in Orlando, FL. I can vouch that that thing is not a joke.

      The Mercs in the second one were cooler.

      This is lame, anyone who's seen the movie back in the day knows that the Jurassic Park vehicles were Ford Explorers. http://www.paintorthread.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/jurassic-park-jeep.jpg

        They were both, this was used for the employees to get around in and in the beginning. Watch the damn movie again!

      This just seems like lazy reporting. I think it's pretty clear that dealers who don't have volts are buying them from dealers that do so that they can benefit from the halo effect of people coming to check out the Volt. Look at the dealers mentioned in the article... One can't get a Volt because it's a Kia dealer and the other can't get one because it's in Illinois where the Volt isn't available. And this can't be what's responsible for "lackluster sales" because a sale is a sale, and all of these "used" Volts have been sold to dealers and would be represented is sales figures regardless of whether they have been sold again to a consumer.

        This just seems like lazy commenting. I think it's pretty clear that this is the wrong article.
