1980 Jeep J-10
Chrysler purchased AMC in 1987 and discontinued the J-Series pickups soon after. The truck had remained the same over its 2-1/2 decade production run.
Exhibit Runs: April 7-June 17, 2018
Pickup trucks are uniquely American. The Italians gave the world sexy sports cars; the Japanese, fuel efficient economy cars and the Germans, high performance and luxurious highway cruisers. But only America produced pickups better than anybody else.
