Commando And Wagoneer Dealer Brochures From 1966
You’ve heard of the best laid plans of mice and men, right? Things are going alot slower this morning than I thought that they would. But this works to your advantage. I’m going to extend the Montana-Overland gift certificate giveaway by another day to not only allow myself the time to put together another short video, but to give you guys one more day to enter. All you have to do is like our Facebook page if you don’t already and post in the thread that contains the video from last week and you’ll be entered! Simple as that. You want another couple of chances? Subscribe to my channel on You Tube and/or follow me on Twitter. If you do, let me know in the post where you follow This-Old-Jeep.com and I’ll give you another entry for each way that you keep up with us.
This week check out the three Commando and Wagoneer brochures that I spotted on www.lov2xlr8.no, an automotive website that is dedicated to advertising and brochures. The site has seemed to be down for the last few weeks. Not sure what is happening there, but it was pretty incredible. These three date from 1966 and show off the transition from workhorse to fun loving plaything that Kaiser was working on for the jeep. Check out the great mid-60’s tongue in cheek ‘hipness’ of these brochures. They are sure to appeal to all you swingers out there. I also found it interesting that the Wagoneer brochure states that you could equip it with the ‘high torque 6’ 232 engine- the very one and the same produced by and used in AMC vehicles starting in 1964. And of course, the same engine that AMC would equip the jeep with under their ownership five years later. Click here to view the entire brochures.
Come back next week when I’ll have more from the world of the jeep. I also plan on holding another two giveaways over the coming months. I want to hold one in November and another for December. Hope that everyone has a great weekend and check in tomorrow when I’ll announce the winner of the Montana Overland gift certificate.
