15k: Barney The Gladiator : 1978 Jeep J10 Pickup

Jeep's full sized pickup was first badged as the Gladiator and later as simply the Jeep Pickup.  The Gladiator Pickup was based on the SJ Wagoneer chassis and as a result is a giant beast of an automobile.  This J10 version is not only the size of a dinosaur, but it is also purple.  Find this 1978 Jeep J10 Pickup offered for $13,900 buy-it-now or best offer on ebay, located in Southport, CT with 5 days to go.  Tip from Ignatius Reilly.

It'll be hard not to hum "I love you, you love me, we're a happy family, with a great big hug, and a kiss from me to you, won't you say you love me too" when ever you drive this thing around.  Purple?  Does it have to be purple?  Plymouth Prowler purple...

The interior looks refreshed and customized somewhat.  It is a pickup, so you shouldn't expect a bunch of luxury, but this one will provide seating for three people and doesn't look bad.

Under the hood is a 360 cubic inch AMC V8 good for 160 horespower when new, but it has been rebuilt and opened up for a few more ponies over stock. 

See a better Purple giant for less?
