'81 J10 Honcho Sportside

One of the original 1,264 flare side Honchos. Second owner since mid-90s. Rust free Fort Worth truck since new. Tasteful restomod. Completely disassembled, media stripped, new hot rod black paint. Epoxy sealer coat, then catalyzed urethanes. All Eastwood products. Many new parts. Great driver. Parts that were removed during the cleanup go with the sale (including the fat diameter Honcho roll bar, chrome trim/emblems, and front bumper). If you like Honcho stripes, stick 'em on...they're cheap. Gold would look good against the black. This truck left the factory in dark blue paint with baby blue stripes. I have photos and receipts since it sold new in 1980. Note that the roll bar was not reinstalled because I was planning to fabricate a full length flip up bed cover.

Original 360 rebuilt...Edelbrocked, HEI...runs great with plenty of grunt. T-18 and 208 from an 80's J20. Bumper hitch and gooseneck mount under access cover in bed. Rear disk brakes. All new (rebuilt) power steering components. New window felts and seals. New windshield and seal. New BJs padded headliner. Seats reupholstered. Front and rear roll pans. Much more.

Try to find a step side Honcho that's not a rust bucket, and then try to rebuild it for less than this price. J10s and Cherokees are increasing in value. Sell price $15,000. Eric

...I installed the original "fat" Honcho roll bar today. This truck is a fairly rare beast folks, and it's priced to sell. It's not a clone and I can back that up.
