Each Friday on the Jeep® Blog, we explore the Jeep brand’s iconic heritage by highlighting a different historical vehicle. This week’s vehicle is the 1967 Jeepster Commando.
Today, Jeep brand enthusiasts still love the “Dauntless” V6 engine, optional TH400 transmission, and full floating Dana 27 front and 44 rear axles that the original Jeepster Commando sported. In 1972-1973, the next iteration of the vehicle (the name “Jeepster” was dropped) was built. The Commando’s front end was restyled to accommodate engines, a fact that could have contributed to the vehicle’s discontinuation in 1973.
Stay tuned to the Jeep Blog as we finish our look at the Jeep brand’s rich heritage in the 1960s and begin to dive into the 1970s.
