1978 Jeep J20 Pickup Truck

Motorcar Studio is pleased to offer this 1978 Jeep 4x4 truck. This has to be one of the most highly documented and well preserved Jeep J-series trucks in existence. This J10 was purchased new from Baldwin-Hayward AMC/Jeep in Gainesville, Florida at a cost of $9,022. It spent a few years in Jacksonville until the owner moved to North Georgia in the early 1980s. It was a one-owner truck from new until early 2019 and it retains extensive records dating to new, original window sticker, owners manual and sales invoice.

Remarkably, the paint and interior are original -- it's finished in two-tone sable brown metallic and tan with a beige "Levi" interior. The paint and body have a few small dings and a light patina but it's clear that this truck has been well kept over its 41 years on the road. The interior is nice with original upholstery, door panels, headliner and dash. The floor covering was recently replaced.

This is a highly-optioned truck with a 360 cubic inch V8, 4-speed floor shift manual, Trac-lok differential, power steering, power brakes, tinted glass, heavy duty cooling, heavy duty charging, air conditioning and custom package. The owner had the dealer install a sliding rear window at the time of sale. In 1981 the owner had the axles swapped for 3/4 ton J20 units and changed the fender badges at that time.

It has been fastidiously maintained throughout its life and most components have been replaced or rebuilt over the years. Documentation shows that early in its life a spare tire replacement auxiliary tank was installed along with a front winch bumper. More recently headers and an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor were fitted, but it's otherwise stock. It runs and drives well and the A/C is working. A true survivor example of a relatively rare truck with amazing history and documentation.
