With its straight lines and masculine, muscular stance, this Kaiser-Jeep Gladiator Townside Half-ton 4x4 pickup is in stark relief to modern pickups. This truck spent a chunk of its existence in Montana before it arrived at MotoeXotica Classic Cars. The previous owner has loved this truck over the past 17 years, since 2002! When was the last time you saw one?
Built in Toledo, Ohio, this Jeep is finished in President Red (code 226) and the paint and trim are in overall very good condition. The truckâ€™s bodywork is straight and solid, the engine bay looks great, as does the cargo bed. In that bed are four whitewall tires, size 235/75R15 complete and original factory wheel covers. The truckâ€™s bumpers, including its corrugated metal rear one, look great. As a touch of whimsy, there are a set of bullhorns attached near the leading edge of the hood.
This truck rides on Goodyear Wranglers, size P245/75R17 and mounted on American Racing vented alloy wheels. The wheels and tires are in very good order.
Under the hood is AMCâ€™s Hi-Torque 232 CID inline six-cylinder engine. Backing this motor is a Warner four-speed manual transmission, a Dana 20 dual range transfer cases and Dana full-floating 44 front and rear axles. It has a 120-inch wheelbase and a GVWR of 5,000.

The Jeep Gladiator / Pickup design is noteworthy for remaining in production for more than 26 years on a single automobile platform generation. The Gladiator was the basis of the first post-war U.S. Army trucks designed to be civilian vehicles and adapted to military use.
