Not only is this 1964 Jeep J-10 rare, but it has been driven less than 24,000 miles, according to the dealership

The private seller of the Pick of the Day notes in the vehicle’s advertisement on ClassicCars.com that “These Jeep J10 models are very rare.”

Indeed, the Pick of the Day is a 1977 Jeep J10 pickup truck, of which The Standard Catalog of Light-Duty Trucks notes that while Jeep produced 32,996 of its CJ-5 models, 25,474 CJ-7s, 19,900 Wagoneers, it built only 12,191 J-10s, its half-ton pickup.

Only Jeeps from 1977 that might be more rare would be the 3/4-ton J-20 pickup or the 2,754 CJ-6s built for export only.

Making the Pick of the Day even more rare is the dealer’s note that it has been driven less than 24,000 miles since new.

The 1977 J10 on offer here has a 360cid V8, an upgrade option for the J10 in 1977. The powerplant is linked to an automatic transmission.

“The paint is all original except for the bronze that was added later to make this truck stand out,” the seller points out. 

“This is a numbers-matching truck and to find one in this condition is unheard of… new wheels and tires were added, has a storage box in the bed, rear window slider”

The truck also has been lifted 3 inches, the seller notes, adding “the interior is immaculate.”

The vehicle is located in Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada, and is being offered for $28,000 (U.S.).

  1. Not trying to cause trouble. I like Jeros and this one is full of the stuff that make them great. But this is odd. It says a rare 1964. Then the article calls it a 1977 J-10.
    Although to my recollection the 1977 had a bar grille if bright metal.
    This grille is a molded plastic and the bumper and mirrors all look like from a 1982. Have you checked the VIN!
