All excellent guesses, but not the answer I was looking for.

Here's a hint....It was before 1950.

Nope, the car I am thinking of was a production vehicle, and the actual model name of the car was Sport Utility.

That El Kineno is an interesting car. (link)

OK, here is another hint.....This car company claims to have produced the first "slabside" car design. They were also the first to offer 4-wheel disc brakes on their full line of vehicles as standard equipment.

Sorry, not a Jeep.

Here are a couple more hints:

The car had an 80" wheelbase and it's 4 cylinder engine block was made of sheet metal.

You are correct, Sir. In 1948 Crosley made a pickup based on it's station wagon called a "Sport Utility". It's a little different than what we consider an SUV today because it was a pickup based on a wagon rather than a wagon based on a truck. It had an SOHC 4 cylinder that was made mostly of sheet metal called a CoBra (short for copper braised) which was also known as "The Mighty Tin". These engines had longevity problems due to corrosion and in 1949 the Mighty Tin was replaced with a more traditional cast iron block.

The floor is yours.

I am going to try to do this without any google search. I am thinking in the thirties, 1934?

Sorry, but you're off by quite a bit. Much earlier than that.
