Vehicle Description

This 1982 Jeep J-10 Honcho has some terrific originality and go-anywhere 4x4 ability. And of course, when you want true vintage pickup distinction, nothing beasts the nods of approval you get in a classic big Jeep.


The history on this pickup shows that most of its life was spent in California. So you can imagine this one parked in-between the redwoods. Then again, the full paint package really has the same appeal as a desert sunset. The Copper Brown Metallic is accented by shades of orange and yellow running down the sides, accenting the creases of the hood, and even on the tailgate. It all looks to be the original application, and so this is also believed to be a true Honcho package. It has the right amount of vintage age that shows decades of care while also making sure no one accuses you of owning a trailer queen. And all the true truck features are well-coordinated in white. The white bull bar bumper up front goes with the white wheels that show off the lifted 4x4 stance. Plus, there's the classic white Leer topper over the bed and a rear steel bummer that's also done in clean white.


Just like the exterior, the interior has an unbeatable sense of classic style. After all, the multi-tone inserts in the seatbacks have the same appeal as the exterior stripe package. And we love the J10's setup with two buckets and a handy armrest jump seat in the middle. If you look closer, you can really see that while this looks vintage, it's all part of a fresh investment in the interior. So not only do you have newer upholstery on the seats, but also great matching door panels, plush new carpeting, a taut headliner, and much more. All the best classic features are in place, like a sliding rear windows, provisions for factory air conditioning (will need servicing,) and a true Jeep-branded AM/FM radio. And the AMC/Jeep vehicles of this era had a sporty sensibility about them with the machine-turned panel surround the round gauge package.


Under the hood is the 258 cubic-inch inline six that has become a great torque king in many Jeeps. It combines with the two-speed 4x4 transfer case for some great off-road work. This one really is ready for go-anywhere duty. That's why you have upgrades like the PIAA lights and deep tread on the Toyo Open Country tires. Plus, power steering, power brakes w/front discs, and the three-speed automatic transmission are great features to have no matter if you are on the street or trail.


The sale comes complete with a roll bar package in case you want to replace the camper topper with a KC light setup. This really is a macho Honcho with a great vintage style. Don't miss out, call today!
