Lot #129 - Jeep invented the SUV class and this is a fine example of their midsized Jeepster Commando. This superb open top roadster is painted in bright red featuring custom made half doors covered in interior matching tan vinyl. The padded roll bar and rear cargo area also received the tan vinyl treatment. Red steel wheels with chrome center caps shod with Firestone all-terrain tires set off the exterior along with the freshly chromed bumpers. Powering this Jeepster is the correct Buick supplied 225cid V6 and GM TH400 3-speed automatic transmission. The engine breathes through a 2 barrel Rochester carburetor and exhales through a dual exhaust. The part-time 4-wheel drive system features Superwinch locking hubs up front while the stock suspension features Rancho shocks and stabilizer. A sealed gel cell Optima battery provides juice to get things started. The freshly covered tan vinyl interior features a rear bench with front bucket seats and lap belts for all occupants. The dash has a fresh matching tan vinyl dash pad with the original AM radio for the correct vintage looks while an AM/FM/CD stereo resides in the glove box for a more modern sound. With its longer wheelbase and larger cargo area, this Jeepster Commando is a practical alternative to the ubiquitous CJ5 without sacrificing much in off road manners. Take this Jeep on your next off-road adventure or simply cruise to the beach.
