ADVENTURE AWAITS: 4x4s Will Take You Wherever You Want To Go
LOT #700 – 1971 FORD BRONCO CUSTOM SUV – NO RESERVE

When you think about it, it’s not surprising that four-wheel drive has been around for more than two centuries. After all, the roads back in the late 1800s were certainly in less-than-ideal condition, so drivers naturally welcomed the ability to travel on challenging road surfaces without worry.

The world’s first four-wheel-drive car directly powered by an internal-combustion engine was the Dutch Spyker 60 HP, commissioned for the Paris to Madrid race of 1903. But it was the advent of war that brought four-wheel-drive vehicles into mass production. The 3-ton FWD Model B Nash Quad became a standard military four-wheel-drive truck for the U.S. Army in World War I. The Quad not only came with four-wheel-drive and four-wheel brakes, but also featured four-wheel steering. It was one of the first successful four-wheel-drive vehicles ever to be made.

The World War II Jeep, originally developed by American Bantam but mass-produced by Willys and Ford, became the best-known four-wheel-drive vehicle in the world during World War II. As soon as the war was nearly over, Willys developed the CJ2, which gave rise to the CJ2A in 1945. Hot on its heels, Dodge also started production of the civilian 4WD Power Wagon trucks for the 1946 model year. Both the Willys and the Dodge were developed directly from their WWII predecessors.

Today’s rugged four-wheel-drive vehicles often showcase an incredible blend of both utility and comfort. The fantastic 4x4s headed to the 2024 Palm Beach Auction with No Reserve are perfect examples of vehicles that don’t stop performing when the pavement ends.

Beach Boy: A surf-ready Yamaha WR155R scrambler from Thailand

yamaha wr155r scrambler 745x497 1

Yamaha WR155R scrambler by Dream Fast Co.
A surfboard rack on a motorcycle might seem like a gimmick to some, but if you live in Bali and love surfing, it’s a downright necessity. The Indonesian island is peppered with surf spots—and a small bike with a rack is the best way to get to them. It doesn’t hurt if that motorcycle looks as good as this Yamaha WR155R scrambler.

The bike was built by Dream Fast Co. for Tiw, the founder of the Laem Yah Rayong Surf Club. Both parties are based in Thailand, but the influence came directly from Bali’s motorcycle and surf culture. Tiw has Balinese friends who use vintage enduro bikes to find hard-to-reach surf spots, and wanted to capture that vibe in his Yamaha WR155R.

Dream Fast Co.’s mandate was to take the modern and reliable WR155R and inject it with a big dose of classic Yamaha dirt bike style. It sounds simple enough on paper, but in reality, it meant wading through piles of plastic to shed the WR155R’s contemporary aesthetic.

Once the Yamaha was denuded of its plastics, the Dream Fast Co. crew set about reworking its lines. The subframe was hacked off, and a new one was fabricated, this time with a kicked-up loop at the back. A new seat sits up top; it’s designed for one, but there is a smidge of space out back if you and your passenger want to get extremely cozy.
