This engine produced 75 horsepower (56 kw) at 4000 rpm and 114 lbft (155 nm) of torque at 2000 rpm. The 160 horsepower (119 kw) dauntless v6 was optional and preferred with its 235 lbft (319 nm) of torque. A total of 57,350 kaiser-spec "c101" jeepster commandos were sold between 1966 and 1971.

    There are several unique body styles of the jeepster commando: Station wagon/suv, convertible, pickup, and roadster. One unusual offering was the deluxe station wagon, with sliding rear windows and full interior trim. In rare cases, these models were finished with a two-tone exterior.

    The 1971 hurst jeepster built with modifications by hurst performance is possibly the scarcest model of all production jeeps.standard equipment included a champagne white exterior with red and blue stripes, a roof rack, a sports steering wheel, and goodyear g70 x 15 raised white letter tires mounted on wider steel wheels. Hurst equipment included special exterior insignia, an 8,000-rpm tachometer on the back of the hood scoop in the driver's line of sight, as well as a hurst t-handle shifter on manual-transmission cars or a console-mounted hurst dual-gate shifter with the optional automatic transmission.

    The convertible came in three types: Revival jeepster, commando convertible, and an open body roadster with no top at all. The revival jeepster was the showcase vehicle of the fleet, offering deluxe interior appointments, powered convertible top, and a continental tire kit. The commando convertible offered the same body with just the basic finish and equipment.

    Engines:

    * 1966-1971 - f134 hurricane i4 134.2 cid (2,199 cc)[1], 75 hp (55 kw) and 114 ftlbf (154 nm)
    * 1966-1971 - dauntless 225 v6225.3 cid (3,692 cc), 3.75 in (95 mm) bore, 3.40 in (86 mm) stroke, 160 hp (119 kw) and 235 ftlbf (318 nm)

    thank you.

    and just in case nobody else noticed...the commando is the only one that magnetically attracts chicks in bikinis

    The grill had horizontal chrome lines and has a name not worth mentioning here.


    1979-1985:
    This is commonly known amongst FSJ enthusiasts as the "Boobie" grill.


    1991 Cherokee Sport with RE 5 1/2" lift, soon to be on 35" Toyo ATs.

    2003 WJ GC Limited 2" BB lift and 33" Dyna Pros on 17" JK wheels., more to come in the future.

    Oh my, what a find this post was for me! Thank you so much for doing this!

    I love Jeeps, I wish they would have never fallen in the hands of Chrysler, but I still love Jeeps despite that. I served in the USMC just before they replaced the Jeeps with the Hummers. I got out the exact year the Jeeps left, which added to my fitting love of them.

    The only thing that could make any of this better would be a listing of how many of a given model were made. I once read my own 86 MJ 2.5L as only having 50 made with the engine I have (different engine than the 87 2.5L). I questioned this on a more Jeep specific web site about 2 years ago and was told it is not correct. Though they had no proof supporting it, just a claim, I had found the info in a Jeep book originally.

    However!

    No Jeep history report would be complete without a easy to look at listing of just what the hell a Jeep "YJ", "CJ", "MJ" or "WJ", etc... actually is. Here's a quick and easy reference, suitable for printing and framing by any true Jeep enthusiast...

    Traditional:
    1940-48 CJ-2A
    1949-53 CJ-3A
    1953-69 CJ-3B
    1954-83 CJ-5
    1955-75 CJ-6
    1976-86 CJ-7
    1981-86 CJ-8
    1987-95 Wrangler YJ
    1997-06 Wrangler TJ
    2004-06 LJ
    2007-09 Wrangler JK

    Dispatcher:
    1955-64 DJ-3A
    1965-82 DJ-5/6

    Crossover:
    2007-09 Compass MK
    2007-09 Patriot MK

    Compact SUV:
    1948-50 VJ
    1966-71 C101
    1972-74 C104
    1984-01 Cherokee/Wagoneer XJ
    2002-07 Liberty KJ
    2008-09 Liberty KK

    SUV:
    1946-65 Willys Jeep Wagon
    1963-83 Wagoneer SJ
    1974-83 Jeep Cherokee (SJ)
    1984-91 Grand Wagoneer
    1993-98 Grand Cherokee ZJ
    1999-04 Grand Cherokee WJ
    2005-09 Grand Cherokee WK
    2006-09 Commander XK

    Compact Pickup:
    1981-85 CJ-10
    1986-92 Comanche MJ

    Full Size Pick Up:
    1947-65 Willys Jeep Truck
    1963-70 Gladiator
    1971-88 Honcho/J10-20 Series

    Truck:
    1956-65 Forward Control

    Van:
    1961-65 FJ-3/3A

    Sorry, I don't have any insider information to extend this list beyond the year 2009 at the time of its writing, so it's only current to that point.

    Thanks. There's tons of info I didn't include. That would take a lot of time and I do need to sleep and show up to work. Thanks for the post.

    Hello , my name is Pablo Andres, im from Argentina, my english is bad.. sorry, im the owner of a Jeep IKA ( Kaiser industries Argentina ), this jeep have a very rare engine, the Tornado ohc 154 four cylinders, i came here to share this whit all of you and im looking for some information too,.

    I have this information from ( http://www.film.queensu.ca/cJ3B/World/Argentina.html )

    Florencio Gamallo reports that about 600 units of the CJ-6, in 2WD version, were factory-equipped with an Indenor 4-cylinder, 68HP diesel engine. Also, a very few units (about 6) built as prototypes for military use, were factory-equipped with the very rare 154 cu. in Tornado 4-cylinder OHC engine (a 4-cylinder version of the 230 Tornado straight six). They were sent to Chile, but after some testing, they were rejected by the Chilean army. Those units were later sold to the Bolivian army.

    And this from ( http://www.oramagazine.com/pastIssue...rticle=oldiron )

    An interesting side note: At the same time Sammy Sampietro was developing the OHC six, he designed an OHC four. With 154 cubic inches, it was simply a Tornado with two less cylinders. Rated at 102hp and 152 lbs-ft., it was perfect for a Jeep CJ. Why this engine never made it into Jeeps we will never know, but a small number were produced.
    The Tornado was a giant step forward for Jeep followed by several steps back. It does hold the record of being one of the earliest American built OHC productions engines, just behind the Crosley and the Duesenburg.


    I dont know how upload pictures...

    Welcome!
    I really want to see pics of this thing so, try phototbucket or one of the other pic hosting websites. Then copy the [IMG] tag and pasted over here.

    To the OP: Great thread! Correction: there was no 54 CJ5. While it was introduced in September 1954, it was the 55 model year. Not being petty, and just for clarification.
