1968 Jeep Kaiser Gladiator Thriftside 4×4 1/2 ton short bed w/ 327 V8 No Reserve!
Good luck finding another one of these in this condition. Super rare 1/2 ton, 4×4 pickup. Comes with a clean title and matching vins. Original California truck with og black CA plates. Runs and drives nicely. You could restore it or drive it like it is.
Mechanical- Over $3,000 spent on mechanical maintenance over the past year. Starts right up and runs great. New valve cover gaskets, new brakes, full tune up / oil change, carb work, starter, electrical, etc. Overall, this Jeep is in good mechanical condition but not perfect. As with most older vehicles, it will need work. Tires are in good condition but older. All electrical works as it should. Transmission shifts through all gears. Mainly driven locally and has not been tested on a long road trip.
Exterior- Very little rust overall. Body is pretty straight with no major damage. Frame is rust free. There was some rust in the floor boards that has been patched over the years. The paint is older and still shines up but no where near perfect. There are scratches and some flaking here and there. There is a rough area on he drivers side where the hood and quarter panel meet. Previous owner tried to match the paint but could be done much better. Truck bed is solid that shows some surface rust / dents but not bad for being original.
Interior- Interior is decent. The seat was redone a few years ago along with the headliner and are in great condition. Door panels are original and a bit rough. Dash has been painted and is complete minus the original radio. Floor boards have been patched and solid. New Jeep mats but would look better with a new carpet kit or rhino-lined.
Passenger window has a crack in it
Paint could use some better touch up or repaint
Only driver side gas tank is hooked up
Missing driver door lock in pictures but I will replace prior to selling
