Jeepster & Commando Limited Edition 1967-1973




Having been discontinued in 1948 the Jeepster name was revived in 1967. In the Mid-sixties the recreational vehicle market had blossomed and manufacturers were rapidly filling the void. The Jeepster was introduced as a blend of a street and off-road machine with extra lifestyle luxuries added to its specification. With the take-over by American Motors the bodywork received a cosmetic makeover. The Commando became the workhorse station wagon in its various guises. By 1972 the Jeepster name had again been dropped as the Commando lived on with a roadster, pickup and a station wagon. This is a book of contemporary road and comparison tests, technical information, buyer’s guide, new model intro’s, driver’s impressions. Models covered include:- roadster, hardtop, convertible, pick-up, station wagon.
