Jeep Commando 1968 Selling my ’68 Commando project. I started with a 99% rust free vehicle with original paint. I wanted a good off road toy to go 4-wheeling with my friends, but that hasn’t happened, so my loss is your gain. It has the spring-over-axle conversion with the knuckles rotated to increase the caster, so it drives down the road very well with no wandering. I have not had it off road for testing, but it should do very well. It is in great shape and a real head turner, but not show quality. It was built to use and get dirty. It’s been driven about 150 miles since being reborn and runs great. Everything works on it except the windshield washers and it does not have a choke installed (pump the gas a few times and it fires right off). It’s also missing the key for the doors and tailgate. If you’re looking for a daily driver you may be disappointed, but it should be a fun weekend toy that doesn’t look like every other Jeep on the road.
Thanks for looking.
