Seriously mate, you can't build a car out of Marmite. No structural integrity at all.

Genuine Willys jeep tubs go for big money and are hard to find. Mahindra or Jago might be easier, but the design is so simple it would be fairly easy to make. The Jeep was a lot narrower than the Frontera so widened wings/flares or a wide body. If doing a self build body, using a modified series Land Rover bulkhead/screen might save a lot of work.
