What Am I? Oiled Up

Welcome to another edition of DT’s cure for the Monday morning blues — What Am I?  In this better than getting ebola from a bowling ball game

we find a random picture of a car and you get to guess what it is. Last
week, we featured a picture of the undercarriage of a ’62 Pontiac Catalina, and a close guess from Fleetwood T Brougham almost solved the puzzle, but it took RyanM’s sharp eBay skills to find the actual car.  The commenters appreciated the harder puzzle, so today’s WAI feature is a doozy.  Just what am I anyway? Update with answers below.

 

If you thought a Jeep Cherokee with 33 inch mud tires was slow, just wait until you put a Mercedes-Benz inline-5 under the hood…because that is exactly what happened to this 2000 Jeep Cherokee with MBZ diesel power that recently sold for $6,821 via eBay.  I was keen to be devious in this WAI feature, since the car was active on eBay when the post went live, but only for about 7 minutes.  Then it went into the recent sales section, so by the time the Mercedes guys chimed in about the engine and the Jeep guys identified the chassis, the actual listing was in the archive, forcing carchivist extraordinaire Kaibeezy to dig deep into his reserves to eBay-Fu to find this pile of smoking diesel fumes.  Great job to Hugh, Handsome & Dirty, and Kaibeezy for the tag team solution.
