Kaiser Jeep recycled the name of the 1948-50 Willys Jeepster (and the late-50's Willys Commando fire truck) for thissporty vehicle, first produced in September 1966 for the '67 model year. The C-101 Commando was, however, a closer relative of the JeepUniversal than the earlier Jeepster had been. On the chassis of a CJ-6 werefour body options including roadster, station wagon, pickup, andpower-top convertible. The F-head four was standard, the Dauntless V-6optional, and available features included automatic, power brakes, air,and Deluxe Trim. Andy McGrath's Commando is from 1972, when AMCstretched the wheel base slightly to fit the inline six and the 304 V-8. They also redesigned the grille, but Andy has installed the Jeep-stylefront clip from a '69. Although 77,573 were sold in just eight years,AMC dropped the Commando after 1973. (Andy McGrath)
