Old Jeepster Commandos from the 50’s and 60’s go into the Jeepster clubs; but by the late 60’s they dropped Jeepster from the name. After American Motors bought Jeep, the Commando line of 1971 and 1972 started to seem like it was assembled with spare parts.
Even so, for a couple decades before Jeep came out with 4-door wranglers, Commandos were sought by off-road enthusiasts because the longer wheelbase was more stable than the CJ-5 that was Jeep’s staple for years.
My dad and two of my brothers own 71 and 72 commandos. The one I plan to inherit isn’t pictured. They are money pits, but they are fun.
So, in an effort to develop some inkscape skills, I give you my 72 Commando.
