Four 1960’s Popular Mechanics Ads
In honor of the end of winter, the beginning of spring and the rapidly coming summer, today we have four ads from Popular Mechanics magazine from the late 60’s celebrating the seasons. Kaiser had acquired Jeep a little more than a decade ago, but before AMC acquired the jeep in 1970 a few important changes and options had shown up in the stable.
The Dauntless V-6 225 had brought an important boost of horsepower in 1966, the Jeepster Commando showed up in 1967 and in 1969 Kaiser offered the jeep camper option in 1969. It featured a four person accommodation with all of the amenities that you’d expect while ‘roughing’ it! The jeep offered a little bit of everything for the public to enjoy no matter the season.

This will be the last regular update for a couple of weeks as I will be out of town on vacation. I will still be posting on our Facebook and Twitter feeds, so check them out. But look for more in May! I have alot more to scan and more areas of the website to revamp. Stick with me, the best is yet to come at This-Old-Jeep.com!
