Sometimes old is gold when it comes to the right vehicle, as you can see here with the military variant of the civilian Jeep Gladiator. Packing a powerful engine for its day and equipped to handle the rigors of the battlefield, the 1967 Kaiser Jeep M715 Pickup Truck is a war hero looking for a new owner.
What you see before you is one of the more refined modifications of this military pickup truck. Under the hood, you’ll find a beastly General Motors 350 cu. in. 5.7-liter V8 engine mated to an Oldsmobile automatic transmission. The pickup truck is equipped with a Dana 60 axle up front and a Dana 70 axle in the rear with both complemented by off-road-ready leaf springs. Not to mention, the ride sits on 42-inch Super Swamper tires that can trample over any terrain thrown in front of them. And the 232-horsepower brutish truck has a 1-1/4-ton hauling capacity to boot. The old all-steel cab beast has a lot of fight left for those bold enough to dive into the wild. It hits the auction block on October 4 and will be offered with no reserve.
