Is it just us or has eBay really become, of late, a surprising time capsule of older, barely used automobiles? We've had the 2005 Porsche Carrera GT with 83 miles, the 2004 Ferrari Enzo with 175 miles, the 1987 Shelby Lancer with 22 miles, the 1989 Shelby Dakota with 23 miles – none of those four cars ever even registered – and the 1975 Cosworth Vega with 191 miles. You can add to that list a 1977 Jeep J20 – the kind of Jeep that enthusiasts point to when they beg the brand to make another pickup truck.

Listed on eBay by Masterpiece Classic Cars in Whiteland, Indiana, the Brandywine and Alpine White truck has used its 360-cubic-inch V8 paired with a three-speed automatic to go just 3,940 documented miles. Not surprisingly, it's listed in excellent condition and the images appear to bear that out. The three-quarter-ton pickup comes with its original manual and pamphlets, the Quadra-Track four-wheel drive probably just as ready to tackle the terrain as it was 36 years ago. If only it came with some John Denver to play in that AM/FM/8-Track stereo...

At the time of writing it hasn't garnered a single offer or bid, probably due to the above-top-dollar Buy It Now price of $34,900. Still, since this is likely the closest you'll get to a Jeep pickup for some time, we'd recommend admiring it in the gallery of photos above.

      Back in the day, a buddy of mine had a Jeep Honcho truck. It was a cool old truck.

      Its seems as though with the huge popularity of full-size trucks, Jeep should bring one back. Although I guess back in day AMC did not have any other pick-ups so the Jeep made sense. But I think there could still be a niche market for one. Could make sense...

        Chrysler does not want one that will compete with the Ram brand. However, they have been teasing us with the J12 concept based on the Wrangler Platform. And with there being no Dakota, no Wrangler, and the future of the Colorado being iffy, there is certainly a market for a smaller sized truck.

      Awesome truck. I think the AMC powerplants are underrated (in reputation). I can't tell if that's a low range box or an overdrive box hanging off of the back of the t-case

        I agree, I think that the AMC 4.0 straight six (that Chrysler kept using for years after aquiring AMC) is rock solid.

        That would be the optional low range box that was available on the BW1339 transfer cases.

      This has Zach Bowman written all over it. Except it is a rust free, driveable truck! Just kidding Zach.

      This is just dreamy. I have a real soft spot for the old FSJ's, but the trick is to get 'em from someone who doesn't know what they have on their hands, like I did my '88 Grand Wagoneer.

      My dad's old J wasn't nearly this nice - lower trim level truck with a 4 speed and manual everything. My Comanche is a little closer to what a modern Jeep pick-up should be - if I remember rightly the J got a whopping 8-12MPG.

      Hey guys thanks for the tip of the hat - here is to hoping Jeep builds us another truck in the future!!

      Amazing!!! Why not bring this back on the former Dokota platform? Use the Penstar V6 and a 8speed trans?

      Is this an actual classic? Just because it's old and in mint condition doesn't mean it's a classic.
