When looking for a distinctive vintage truck, it's hard to beat
this 1982 Jeep J10. Aside from rarity, you get a tough 4x4 pickup
that's ready for work duty. Although, this one has also earned the
right to be a show truck with a quality restoration and fresh
paint. And when you see all the features, including the stylish A/C
interior, you realize this checks all your boxes... and it does it
for an affordable price.
These J10s always catch an eye for their rarity. After all, in the
same year the Ford F-Series was one of the country's most popular
vehicles, there were barely over 5k of these J10s made. And the
rarity and distinction only grows with each year. That's why
someone would take extra time and effort restoring this example.
The Copper Brown Metallic paint is a full professional application
that was laid down only a few months ago. It has an excellent shine
that will make you want to take this Jeep outdoors for far more
than just hitting the trail. In fact, this one remains both a
stunner and quite a useful pickup. The tall 4x4 stance, amber fog
lights, detachable side steps, and liner paint in the long bed all
mean this one is ready for everything from a hardware store run to
a camping trip amongst the stars.
These trucks shared their interiors with the Wagoneers, and so it's
a quite comfortable place to spend some time. The seat looks quite
fresh, and there's a fold-down jump seat in the middle so you can
choose between three across or an armrest and bucket-like comfort.
We especially like the houndstooth inserts that are repeated in the
door panels for a very stylish look. Good carpeting, clear gauges,
a smooth dash, and a tilt steering column all make this a nice
place to spend so time. There are handy features like power windows
and power locks. This comfort is furthered by modern upgrades like
an AM/FM/CD stereo with Bluetooth and air conditioning blowing cold
from modern R134a refrigerant.
The Jeep/AMC 258 cubic-inch straight-six has been a long-standing
powerhouse utilized by some legendary vehicles. This one has not
been chromed-out, because that's not the Jeep way. Instead, you can
tell by its appearance that there have been the right investments
in maintaining the fundamentals. It fires up nicely and runs smooth
like a good inline motor should. Plus, the three-speed automatic
transmission, power steering, and power brakes with front discs
make this truck a fine anytime driver. And anytime also means
anywhere with its two-speed 4x4 transfer case, lifted suspension,
and Falken Wildpeak tires.
Rare, powerful, and filled with the right features, this is the
classic Jeep offered for quite a nice price. So if you love a
distinctive pickup, don't let this shining example slip away. Call
