Today, nearly every soft crossover and even the occasional compact car is available with four driven wheels, but the availability of all-wheel drive wasn't always something that could be taken for granted—even for off-roaders and trucks.

During that time, a 4.2-liter (261-cubic-inch) Jobmaster six-cylinder was installed, the same kind of thumper you'd find in the contemporary heavy-duty trucks. Other than an upgraded header and bigger carburetor, the powertrain is mostly stock, sending power to the genuine NAPCO front-end and transfer case through a four-speed manual transmission.

While this would be neat to cruise main street, we think it'd be best used to chug along desert paths and down forest two-tracks. Make sure you register to bid before it crosses the block during the Scottsdale event, which begins on January 12.
