Jeeps, Cadillacs and More: 41 Cars and Trucks

Most car collectors tend to focus on a particular brand, period, or body type. But in the case of the Moizard couple out of Strathcona Country, Alberta, Canada, they have a little bit of everything here. This is a… more»

Short Bed 4×4: 1979 Ford F-150

If you were a Ford F-150, would you still have your original paint since 1979? Well, at least most of it? This 1979 Ford F-150 4×4 has spent almost all of its life in Northern California and has minimal… more»

Repaint Or Preserve? 1967 International Scout 800

We recently saw a 1973 International pickup that looks like it could be almost the fraternal twin to this 1967 International Scout 800. Maybe not a fraternal twin, but at least a close relative with the paint and wheels… more»

Factory Special! 1983 Cadillac Coupe De Ville 4×4

When I first spotted this 1983 Cadillac Coupe De Ville 4×4, I thought that some enthusiast had created a crazy custom. The truth is that it is a unique vehicle created by the factory for the gentleman who was… more»

Solid Survivor: 1978 Subaru BRAT 4×4

The seller refers to this Subaru BRAT as a 1976 model but 1978 was their first official year on the market so I’m assuming that it was a typo. They don’t give a VIN, unfortunately, so we’ll have to… more»

Arizona Survivor: 1979 Plymouth Trail Duster 4×4

We don’t see Plymouth 4x4s too often and I can only think of one other Trail Duster shown here, this sweet round-headlight example that Jeff showed us a year ago. This 1979 Plymouth Trail Duster Sport 4×4 can be… more»

32K Mile 1984 Dodge Power Ram 4×4 Prospector

The seller refers to this 1984 Dodge Power Ram 3/4-ton 4×4 Prospector pickup as a true barn find and says that it was sitting in a barn for years. I typically drive between 40,000 and 50,000 miles a year… more»

Desert Runner: 1988 Nissan D21 4×4

More than just a graphics package and some bolt-on accessories, this 1988 Nissan Desert Runner – based on the D21 Hardbody pickup – was the real deal, at least by 1988 standards. The seller has this rare 4×4 pickup… more»

304 V8-Powered 1972 Jeep Commando 4×4

The end was near for the Commando but it received a refreshed look and more room for bigger and longer engines for the 1971 model year shortly after Kaiser was bought by AMC. The makeover didn’t go over too… more»

Box Checker: 1988 Subaru XT6 AWD 5-Speed

Most of the quirkiness is gone from the Subaru lineup but in the golden days of yore – as no Subaru owner has said, ever – they made some very unusual vehicles. One of the most unusual was a… more»

65K-Mile 2002 Toyota Tacoma 5-Speed 4×4

It’s hard to argue with a vehicle that’s been made for twenty-five years such as the Tacoma has. A lot has happened in those two and a half decades, there was barely an internet back then, or at least… more»

Original 1963 Willys Jeep Traveller 4×4

If there’s a cooler vintage 4×4 to drive around – not on the freeway, not in traffic jams, but regular driving for fun and errands around the neighborhood – I can’t think of it offhand. The Lamborghini LM002 doesn’t… more»

Texas Truck: 1977 International Scout II

It’s hard to believe that the last Scout was made over forty years ago now, what a shame. Why is that? Just when companies seem to be getting everything dialed in they stop making certain vehicles. This 1977 International… more»

Clean Survivor: 1997 Toyota Tacoma LX 4×4

This isn’t a dusty barn find but it’s a 24-year-old truck now which is fairly ancient if you think about it. It’s not old at all in relative terms as a lot of you regularly drive vehicles that are… more»

Perfect Patina? 1986 Nissan 720 4×4

Patina is one of those words that a person either is on board with or any time it’s used it’s like fingernails on a chalkboard. Wait, do we all know what a chalkboard is? Just checking, I don’t think… more»

California LUV: 1980 Chevrolet LUV 4×4

Badge engineering was a big thing starting in the 1960s, or that’s when it really started to hit its stride. This isn’t a full list of countries, but British, French, German, and Japanese vehicles were often rebadged as American… more»
