I know nothing about these other than you don't see them around.

I can't say I've ever seen one.

I like it.

Mike.

I had a 73 in the early 90’s.

73 was well enough after the AMC buy out, that mine had red white and blue emblems, and used AMC straight 6 and a GM trans.

Good little unit. Got me through some lean times.


I used to care but....... things have changed

I think some got Buick V6s ? For a while, before AMC, Jeep used Buick V8s.
I knew a Jeep guy a few years back who'd bought one, and he thought it was a holy grail deal.

My grandfather had a regular Commando wagon to plow his drive when he got too old to walk behind his snow blower (late 70's). It had a Buick v6 for sure...

GM sold the tooling of the 225 Dauntless V6 to Kaiser-Jeep in 1967, but after the oil crisis decided to buy it all back. They increased the bore to make it a 231 (3.8L).

They sold off the Buick aluminum 215 V8 to Rover ~1965, and the Brits put in just about anything with wheels: Land Rovers, Triumph TR8, MGB GT, Rover 3500/SD1, TVRs, Morgans, and THOUSANDS of British race cars. Nice, lightweight efficient V8 that would have helped them a lot 10 years later...
