can you help me identify this?

Afternoon everyone....

When my wife and I moved a few weeks ago i saw a "jeep" sitting in a field. Being a guy I went to the books trying to figure out what it was.... ok i know were guys we dont need books or instruction manuals..

From my conscrewed research and lack of knowledge on FSJ's i now turn to you...my fellow JF members.

PLease help me at least get a small handle on what this is so if i convince the wife that i need another project (other then my 7) i can at least have a clue what i talking about when i go knocking on his door.

Yes it has been sitting and it has no rear glass and a flat front tire....but you know, were jeep guys...thats just part of the challenge....

Thanks in advance!

I would rather have a tool I don't need, than need a tool I don't have.

see in my research it gave me jeepster and commando and Jeepster commando... it appears that the half cab is unique (not rare) any ideas on bodystyling year? I knwo the CJ guys have that stuff memorized. that way i can look up axles (im guessing 44's) and engine trans combos that were available.

Look like same body style as the 66. So, late 60s to 1970 Jeepster Commando. The pickup cap is pretty rare, and I think they're super cool. And the rear glass is flat, so that's an easy fix.

Probably d44 rear/ d30 front

Beauty is in the eye of the jeepowner.

Hard to tell what year without seeing the grille/front clip. Late 60s/early 70s is a safe bet though.

Lots of info on them at jeepstercommandoclub.com. Believe it or not, for a few years you could find the Dana 30 as a rear axle on those. They were the oddball Jeeps at the time.

This is probably the most information online forum for them. http://forums.off-road.com/jeepster-...jeepster-club/

Cool... Thanks guys... maybe this wekeend i'll stop by and say hi to him. Hopefully it has a drive train under it and i'll try to get a shot of the front.

I know that makes a lot of difference but the way it is nosed into the trees i couldn't get a good shot....
