This action-filled video features Baldwin taking the highly modified Ferret through forests, deserts, and water as well as across seemingly impossible obstacles.
‘The Ferret’ was constructed using a 1959 British Ferret 4X4 military scout vehicle as a platform. Heavily modified from its original design by Action Vehicle Engineering, it has six massive Toyo Open Country tires mounted on custom wheels… two of which are powered by hydraulic motors operated from inside. Its modified suspension with King Shocks allows ‘The Ferret’ to travel rough terrain and conquer obstacles with ease. To give it a boost in horsepower, American muscle was added by installing a Chevrolet LS engine in the rear. Atop ‘The Ferret’ is a custom-built launcher with a grappling hook, attached to a winch cable.
