“1971 Jeepster Commando 83k, Buick V6, 4 speed manual, 4wd with hi-low and lockout hubs, runs, drives, stops. Not perfect, but in really good shape, drives like an old Jeep should. Larger than the old CJ’s so it’s definitely more stable. Includes white hard top, Kayline (black) soft top, hell creek suspension, 31″ tires, with brand new spare not even mounted yet, Mickey Thompson wheels, front disc brakes, new rear brakes, (shoes, drums and wheel cylinders), spare tire carrier (included but not mounted). Black hi-back seats in front with folding seat in rear. New Battery, Alternator, Voltage Regulator, transmission mount. Not exactly a rare thing but definitely uncommon, always draws interest whenever I drive it. Currently tagged as an antique so it does not require inspection, costs less than $200 a year to insure.

Overall it is is very good shape for what it is; a 40 y/o utility vehicle; I drive it approximately once a week w/o issue. It’s not a daily driver, and not really appropriate for highway travel. It will do 60mph, but that doesn’t mean it’s a good idea…
As far as I know I am the fourth owner, it was originally from Chicago, I bought it in NJ a little over 2 years ago where it spent the last few years living in a shed. It does have some rust, especially in the rear cargo area. The frame has surface rust, but no rot, wire brush it, navel jelly it and coat with your favorite rust inhibitor.
The engine is an odd-fire V6, it’s very dirty, but pulls strong, starts easily. I have installed a battery disconnect for when it’s just sitting.
The windshield has a gouge on the passenger side where it looks like somebody ran the wipers with no rubber on them, it’s ugly but still works. The wiper blades are new along with the rubber along the door windows. The windshield washer system is incomplete and non functioning. The pump motor is buried up under the dash but it is not wired in and the washer fluid reservoir bag is old but still in the engine compartment.
It is being offered as is no warranty, if the ad is still up then it’s still available.”
