A well-regarded model from Jeep is the Jeep Commando, a pickup produced from 1967 to 1973. While initially it was known as the Jeepster Commando, eventually it was changed to Jeep Commando. The Commando was created to compete with the likes of the Broncos and Scouts. During 1972 and 1973, Jeep made many an excellent change to the venerable Commando, and it was the last two years of the Commando as well. A rare chance to own one of these iconic models is at hand with this 1973 Jeep Commando in topping condition. It comes with just 19,724 miles on the odometer, which is less than 500 miles driven per year since its manufacture!
The 1973 Jeep Commando is painted in brilliant red, with the white "Commando" lettering done on each side of the rocker panels. The front facia features a sizeable egg-crate grille painted in white, accommodating the two headlights in red bezels and twin fog lights between the headlights. A chrome slim front fender is visible below the grille. This Commando has a white roof and rear window frames. The rear features a slanted design where the "Jeep" logo is visible on the tailgate and a rear chrome bumper. It sits on a set of OEM Jeep branded wheel covers done in chrome. The interior features an almost spartan decor, with bare minimal amenities. A rectangle directly in front of the driver houses the speedometer, odometer, and turn signals indicators. A rectangular box on the left-hand side contains the rocker switches for the lights, wipers, washers, and heater fan. The center of the dash is host to the Jeep branded radio. Overall, the tan color matches well with the entire color scheme of the Commando.
The seller reports that this 1973 Jeep Commando is a number matching motor and transmission example, although it is undocumented. During the last two years of the Commando, Jeep partnered with AMC to give the Commando an edge with their engine offerings. This Commando comes equipped with the AMC sourced 258ci straight-six engine mated to a 3-speed manual transmission. The seller also reports that the grounding issue was recently addressed while a new battery was added.
