About Jeep Commando

The Jeep Commando was produced from 1966 through 1973 by two different companies and in four different body styles: a roadster, wagon, pickup truck and convertible. Originally brought out under the Kaiser ownership, the Jeepster Commando survived a buyout of the Jeep brand from Kaiser by AMC in 1970. This great little vehicle was created to compete with the Land Cruiser and Bronco. The Jeep Commando was related to earlier Jeepster models and looked a lot like models that had been built years prior. After American Motors Corporation bought the Jeep Corporation from Kaiser, the popularity of the Jeep Commando C101 (101" wheelbase) grew rapidly. In 1972, American Motors Corporation shortened the vehicle's name to Commando C104, extended the wheelbase to 104", and changed the front-end design.

Later on in production, the Jeep Commando changed its original military look into a traditional passenger style vehicle. The front grille was upgraded after 1972, but that was not enough to pick up popularity and in 1973 the Jeep Commando was taken out of production. During the time of active production which lasted only for a few years, from 1966 to 1973, despite all efforts at modification and redesign, the expected sales did not materialize. The Jeep Commando sold 57,350 vehicles under the control of Kaiser till 1970, and another 20,223 were sold under the American Motors Corporation leadership after 1970. The Jeepster name was taken away after 1971, with the vehicle living on for a couple more years as the Jeep Commando.

The 1966 Jeep Commando under the control of Kaiser was equipped with the F-head Hurricane straight-4 engine that produced 75 horsepower at 4,000 rpm. The optional Dauntless V6 engine was capable of 160 horsepower, and four wheel drive was finally added. Under the American Motors Corporation leadership in 1971 and 1972 the Jeep Commando had three engines to choose from: the AMC 3.8-liter, 4.2-liter AMC Straight-6, or the 5.0-liter AMC V8. Special designs were available on the 1971 Hurst Jeepster, which had special paint and striping colors, a roof rack, Hurst T-handle or Dual-Gate shifters, an 8,000 rpm tachometer, etc.
