Updated with edited pictures. I couldn’t help myself. The truck is just so beautiful!
Wait, was that. . .
Yes, it was. On my way back, I stopped to take some pictures. A lot of pictures. Possibly an obscene amount of pictures, but Oppo deserves it.
Prepare yourself for many many pictures of this Jeep J10.
At least I think it is a J10. Certainly a J series and even more certainly a Jeep.
An AMC era Jeep no less. According to Wikipedia, that would most likely make this a J10.
My goodness is that a beautiful truck. The rusty brush guard really adds to the personality it is positively dripping with.
The truck really pulls off this brown on brown on brown paint. Many different shades of brown exist here.
Moving on, we see a surprisingly immaculate interior. Probably recently reupholstered judging by the contrast with the exterior.
It’s a manual too. I don’t see a 4wd selector so it is probably just 2wd unfortunately.
As you can see from this angle, it is crusty but trusty, the best kind of rusty. A little oxidation appears around the rear, but considering how badly AMC Jeeps rusted this is nothing. Just ask David Tracy.
Yes, this is absolutely a Jeep. Perhaps an exterior refurbishment is in its future, considering its location outside a body shop. Gotta love that old .gov “give wildlife a chance” license plate. Those go way back, so clearly this old Jeep is a longtime local.
In short, I would rock this every day of the week and twice on Sunday.
