Question Ad Astra moon rovers using a Model A chassis?

Is it just me or are the Ad Astra moon rovers using a Model A chassis? See the clip below. I think I see a front wishbone when the pirates shoot off both front wheels of a rover.

Talking Re: Ad Astra moon rovers using a Model A chassis?

Headlights seem to be late 31 stainless steel...cannot make out if the reflectors are polished alloy or silvered.

The e-brake is definitely AR28

You might be right. Those pirate rovers certainly seem to have some Russian made GAZ-A characteristics.

No whitewalls?

Plus he's driving on the wrong side must have been designed in the UK.

Nice after-market coilover shocks.

I don't know, I think they are using a CGI chassis.

Those cool fenders keep the moon mud from messing up your pretty white suit. How high do those things bounce at 1/6 G when you hit a bump in the road?

Hope they opted for a Berg rather than a Brassworks.
