My Comanche has been in our
family for more than 19 years. The truck was manufactured in June 1989. My daughter
purchased the truck from
Casey & Akin Chevrolet - Jeep in Jackson, Tennessee on Feb. 21, 1990. The odometer reading showed 975 miles on that date,
It now shows 130,670. She
traded the Comanche to my son in early 1995. In August 1995 I bought the SporTruck from my son. I have owned my Comanche
longer than any other vehicle, and I have no plans to sell or trade it.
My 89 Comanche is still about as
original as it was in 1989. It has the original 4 cylinder 2.5 L AMC engine and 5 speed manual
transmission, and looks almost as good as it did the day I purchased it. My truck
has original red paint and black SporTruck stripe and it is 100% rust free. It is a
short bed model with 2 wheel drive.
On May 9, 2009 my SporTruck won
a first place trophy for mid size stock trucks in the annual Strawberry Festival Auto Show in Humboldt,
Tennessee. My Jeep pickup has always been reliable and is fun to drive. When I
drive my SporTruck down the road, I feel just as important as the dudes driving huge
extended cab mega trucks of today. I know my Comanche turns more heads than their trucks do
and I am able to drive by more gas stations without stopping to fill er up.
