1962 Jeep Pickup --

Such an outstanding combination of vintage appeal and anvil like durability! This 1962 Jeep Pickup represents the model in a seldom seen configuration - referring to it as "rare" would be a decided understatement. After more than 55 years of uncomplaining service, it's structurally rock-solid and running great, propelled by a period correct engine that's still in top form. The green exterior this classic wears was treated to a respray a while back and, in its... present state, offers the perfect accompaniment to the vehicle's "no nonsense", purpose-driven spirit. It's got a consistent pigmentation from front to back and the almost matte-like finish confers the notion that it's gone head to head with the elements over an extended period of time, only to come out on top. The fitment on this Jeep is actually just as precise as you could want - its body panels all line up very nicely and consistent gaps surround the hood and doors. The dark green front end houses an arrow straight grille ornamented by contrasting cross bars that tie in well with the set of lightly colored wheels, with another perched on the side of the bed area that pairs with a hitch receiver in back to illustrate this Jeep's readiness for action. Clear glass, accompanied by fresh rubber seals, surrounds the cabin and the assembly of chrome on display here, including the side mirrors and headlight casings, really presents nicely. The interior reflects a minimalist sensibility, accented by an appealing, patina-accented vibe and remains in almost entirely original configuration, featuring a gray cloth bench seat that's likely been in place since this one of a kind vehicle rolled into action - it still has plenty of miles left on it as it looms over diamond-plated floor pans that still look reassuringly solid. The sizable original steering wheel is still perched on the column and the dash area beyond it reflects the Jeep's spartan, military-style influence, with a rugged, rectangular chrome instrument panel now housing a trio of aftermarket SunPro gauges to keep tabs on motoring functions and a matching glove box door in place on the passenger side. The diamond-plated bed area appears to be in great shape, surrounded by straight walls that show no signs of being damaged by shifting cargo. This iconic classic is powered by a period correct drivetrain that's still functioning at the top of its game - the running condition on display here really is impressive. A period correct Super Hurricane 226 cubic inch inline 6 serves as its foundation, fed by a one barrel carb as it sits in a thoroughly stock engine bay showing the same surface ornamentation as the rest of the vehicle but still in good order - some detailing would freshen it up but it's got plenty of appeal just as it stands. The added HEI ignition heats up the available spark as the engine pairs with an equally high-functioning 3-speed manual transmission, and the four wheel drive surefootedness this Jeep is equipped with is no mere novelty - it's fully operational and ready to be engaged as you veer onto more rugged terrain. A set of 16" steel wheels outfitted with 7.50 x 16 Power King mud tires puts just the right touch on this seldom seen vintage workhorse. With its outstanding running condition and rugged old-school appearance, this 1962 Jeep Pickup would be a great score for the classic enthusiast looking to get behind the wheel of a rare and capable ride.
