1973 Commando Station Wagon
Job 1 for AMC was to integrate as much home-built componentry as possible into the Jeep line. That included the engines . . . and that was a good thing. The AMC inline-six or V-8 engines were generally better than what Jeep had been using, though they did require some alterations to fit. In the case of the C-104 Commando (note the "Jeepster" part was dropped), you either loved or hated the new look. You definitely loved the power of an available 304ci AMC V-8 as is fitted to this stellar '73. Not much was changed from the cowl back.
