Kaiser Jeep recycled the name of the 1948-50 Willys Jeepster
(and the late-50's Willys Commando fire truck) for this
sporty vehicle, first produced in September 1966 for the '67 model year.
The C-101 Commando was, however, a closer relative of the Jeep
Universal than the earlier Jeepster had been. On the chassis of a CJ-6 were
four body options including roadster, station wagon, pickup, and
power-top convertible. The F-head four was standard, the Dauntless V-6
optional, and available features included automatic, power brakes, air,
and Deluxe Trim. Andy McGrath's Commando is from 1972, when AMC
stretched 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-style
front clip from a '69. Although 77,573 were sold in just eight years,
AMC dropped the Commando after 1973. (Andy McGrath)
