Ahhh You are right.

Maybe I can put my Truck on Craigslist.

2008 F150 SuperCrewCab Model T (Historic Item) Truck for sale
This truck was built in the early 1900s and was the first factory-assembled pickup.

Pickup trucks are not unique though.

It would have to being something retro, designer purposely to mimick and/or reproduce an older design for asthetic reasons.

Its in the same catagory as other cars that play up there heritage to increase its retro creds... Like Beetles, or Minis, etc. Both those are always referring to classic originals. Or like the Ford GT, or even Harleys.

Most cars and trucks today are dull. They all look alike because they are all trying to be "modern" since thats why detroit thinks that we all want. But some designs are purposely made to look vintage. And for those few mentioned above, that is the main selling point.

There really is no point in arguing because I thought all this was obvious, and clearly its not. Its not for me to guess at the reasons since I can only talk for myself.

I think you read wayyy to much into the ad. The jeep he is selling is not rare or historic. Now if I listed my 1942 CJ2A the listing would fit a little better but would still be misleading because my CJ2A was not in the military

Anyone have anymore "crazy pills" I think I just ran out LOL! The point of the post was to point out that the seller was clearly confused and didnt know much about jeeps. Everyone was just having fun with it dont get so worked up.

Thanks for posting this great craigslist find. I've notified all my area collectors to check it out before someone grabs it.



Hilarious thread.

My favorite CL ads always say "Ran great when parked" to which I say... so why didnt you ever drive it again then? Or "Everything there, except..." and you get a list a mile long of things missing. Too funny.

Wow. I thought I did this to honor my service and show respect for those before me but my hand must have been guided by the military spirit of the jeep itself! It's even got hand grenades and bullets so it HAS to be legit!!
