1968 Jeepster Commando Convertible
When the original-model Jeepster debuted in 1948, nobody denied it was neat. It just didn't have the "go" to go with the "show." That wasn't true when Jeep reintroduced a similar-looking rig, the Jeepster Commando, for the 1967 model year. The top-o'-the-line unit was the model 8701 convertible. It came with a snappy V-6, four-wheel drive and the convertible came with an optional power-operated top and a Continental-style spare tire. Pat Hughes' '68 8701 is one of only 422 built from '67-'69.
