Why This Jeep?

Jp Magazine - - Jeep­ster Barn Find -

It’s not of­ten you come across a 50-plus-year-old 4x4 with 56,000 orig­i­nal miles and good fac­tory paint that is still hit­ting the trails. It’s a sim­ple take on get­ting out­side to ex­pe­ri­ence the real world. Alex told us, “I look at this Com­mando as a time cap­sule of what it was like to ven­ture off-road in 1967. Car­bu­re­tors act up, no heat or sound in­su­la­tion to speak of, the elec­tri­cal sys­tem is woe­fully in­ad­e­quate, and steer­ing is just a sug­ges­tion. Yet, when it is glid­ing across the desert and mak­ing its way up steep slick­rock as­cents, I can’t think of a mod­ern rig I would trade it for!”
