Re: Considering purchasing a 1967 Jeep Gladiator
I would say that with gears that low it would be pretty good off road. A motor with a lot of torque, and gears that low would really be bulldozer. It would really depend on what kind of offroading you want to do.
A truck that old really should be inspected very carefully before you go out and buy it. It if was used to move trains (trains are big and heavy) then it has probably not had a very easy life. Check the frame for cracks, and bends. And check the trans fluid. If the fluid is cooked, then I would say, pass on it and find another truck to play off road with.
