1963 J200 Thriftside
1963 Kaiser Jeep J200 "Thriftside” four wheel drive pickup truck. It's the first year for the "J” series truck and
with the rare and desirable "Thriftside” 7' box. The odometer shows just over 80K miles, which I believe to be accurate. "Tornado” OHC I-6 engine
runs well but leaks oil pretty badly. Engine accessories, water pump, fuel pump, distributor, carb and alternator all work well or have been
rebuilt since I've had the truck. No coolant leaks. The heat and defrost work fine. The T-90, 3-speed manual transmission works OK. Could shift
smoother between 2 & 3. The column shift linkage has only a few miles on rebuild. Suspect synchros are wearing. Clutch also Is OK. It has newer
clutch hydraulic cylinders. Dana 20 transfer case works well and indicator lamps function. The rest of the drive train, drive shafts, axles,
(4.09 ratio), and knuckles are in good shape and have been maintained. Steering is good…considering design and brakes work well, including E-brake.
Brake master cylinder changed to dual reservoir style. Good rubber on refurbished OEM rims. The truck drives very well. The "Tornado” with the drive
ratio works well and it cruises easily at 60 mph. Body very good condition for its age. Some rust in cab floor but not bad. New panels are readily
available. Some rust in right side rocker panel. I do have new replacement I will include. Bench seat has been reupholstered. Later model rear
sliding window installed. Door seals are bad. All controls and gauges are operable. Box was restored several years ago. Rear frame stripped and
painted at the same time. It is a very basic model with a painted "Rhino” grill and no headliner. The frame and chassis components are in excellent
shape. The rear springs have been rebuilt and the fuel tank is a new aftermarket poly unit.
