The first true full-size luxury SUV, predating the Range Rover by 7 years, is the model that invented the SUV category; one of the most enduring names in US car production. Now considered one of the most interesting Jeeps to collect, both in its country of origin and in Europe. Prices are rising sharply due to the difficulty of finding complete examples in excellent condition like the one proposed.
The car must be collected from the province of Pescara.
