Last Canada Day, Fiat Chrysler Canada built a life-size Jeep Wrangler out of non-perishable canned goods to help raise awareness about poverty and hunger in the Greater Vancouver Area. This year, FCA again built a ‘canstruction’ Jeep Wrangler for Canada Day and again donated the canned goods to local Vancouver food banks to support those in need.
The creation is made almost entirely from canned goods, save for the grille, which is borrowed from a real JK Jeep Wrangler, and the front and rear window frames, which appear to be made from PVC piping. Over 5,000 cans were used in the build process – enough to provide 3,500 meals.
FCA seems to have a thing for ‘canstructions’. The automaker has also built a life-size Dodge Ram out of canned goods to promote the 2014 Calgary Stampede, along with a Dodge Grand Caravan that was put on display in downtown Toronto. The canned goods used for those sculptures were also donated, of course.
