In October of 1969, this vehicle rolled off of the production line in Toledo, Ohio. It did not stay in areas with salted roads, rather going to the west coast. This Jeepster Commando has survived 45 years, much of it spent in the high desert in California and Nevada. As such, there is no rust on the vehicle outside of the small scratches on the paint. It is currently a registered vehicle in the state of California, and is road legal. I do drive this Jeepster regularly. It is an active, running vehicle. In California, it is exempt from emission testing, and costs little to register. This is a driving project, its not quite done but it works. The carburetor runs a bit lean, the suspension needs some work, steering is rather loose, and the transfer case needs a pin on the outside. The gauges on the dash board need work too, but its an easy job. Otherwise, this vehicle is in very good condition with VERY little rust.
This has been a simple father-son restoration project, but after my dad's fourth spinal reconstruction surgery, he is unable to work on or drive this vehicle. I have taken care of it well, but I lack the money to restore this vehicle alone and try to go to school at the same time. This is a very rare vehicle, and is in great shape. It isn't in need of a off the frame restoration, Its the little things around it. The hood and grill are from an cj-5. The latches and hinges are the exact same for the Jeepster Commando, with the only difference being that the hinges in the front on the fenders are in a a few inches farther out.

-The brakes were redone in 2014. I have the receipts for all of this.
-This vehicle is always stored in an enclosed garage, it does not sit outside while at it's home.
-The interior is spotless, and the seats and floor were completely redone in 2011. I take a lot of pride in this jeep, and do not tolerate dirtiness inside or outside.
-The top of the vehicle is completely removable, and is comfortable without it. It is taken off for special occasions regularly, but requires 2 people to lift.
-There have been no lift kits ever on this vehicle.
-Despite the steering being loose, this does not affect the vehicle's handling at highway speeds. The alignment is perfect however, and the steering is a minor issue.
-The engine mounts have been newly replaced
-The oil was changed only 50 miles ago, and I am very good about changing the oil regularly.
*It comes with a set of emblems for the hood. It also comes with a spare tire carrier which holds 2 Jerry cans. This vehicle is sold as is. No warranty included. It does need some work, but is an easy project. You will need to pick this vehicle up if you purchase it, it based in Barstow, California (100 miles from LA, 140 from Vegas).
I've been asked about this vehicle often, if it was going to an auto show, or comments on how rare it is. It turns heads when you stop. There are few of these still driving, and fewer for sale. For a 45 year old car, this is in fantastic condition.
The mileage on the vehicle will not be the same as when listed. I drive this regularly, and even though its for sale, its still used. It isn't in storage. This vehicle is a running and working jeep. Once the temp and oil gauges get fixed, I have no doubt this vehicle could drive a thousand miles.
If you have any questions, ask. I will respond quickly.
