Jeepster Commando Was Built to Perform
In 1967, Jeep released their first midsize 4×4, the Jeepster Commando, which allowed the brand to become more competitive with comparable cars like the International Scout, Toyota Land Cruiser, and Ford Bronco. The name of the car hearkened back to the Jeepster Sports Phaeton, made from 1948–1951 under the formerly-named Willys-Overland. The interior design of the Jeepster Commando was pretty spartan, but then again, it wasn’t meant to have a beautiful interior, it was just built to perform while maintaining a cool exterior look. From the way Jeep advertised the Jeepster Commando, it’s clear that it was intended as a do it-all, go-anywhere sort of car, whether that meant mountains, beach, farm…you get the idea.
