If you have never seen the incredible collection of Jeeps curated by Omix-ADA at its Suwanee, Georgia headquarters, then you need to get there now. Two rare Jeeps–a 1959 FC and a 1978 J-10¬–been recently added, and now the museum is open to the public.
Dave Logan, Jeep Collection Curator at Omix-ADA commented that the J-10 pickup truck came to them with extremely low mileage, an original Levi interior, and air conditioning–an option that not many featured in that day. The Jeep FC-150 that Omix-ADA has added to its ever-growing assemblage has the wider chassis, and a hydraulic bed.
Referring to the Jeep FC-150, Logan said, “There were only 1,546 of this model sold in 1959. These trucks were primarily marketed as work vehicles for corporate, municipal, military, farm, and civilian use, so it’s tough to find one in such good shape.”
The Omix-ADA Jeep collection, which currently showcases rare and unique military and civilian Jeeps, ranging from pre-WWII prototypes to the modern day JK Wrangler was started years ago to, as Omix-ADA president and founder Al Azadi said, “preserve Jeep heritage.”
The collection showcases some of the rarest examples of the Jeep vehicle, ranging from 1941 to the present, and the Jeep J-10 and FC-150 will be part of an all-new rotating display of more than 20 modern, vintage, and historic Jeeps selected from its collection beginning in July of 2015.
Complimentary private tours of the collection at Omix-ADA’s headquarters will be available to the public by appointment on select days, and can arranged by contacting Omix-ADA at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling (770) 614-6101.
