1971 Jeep Commando Hurst Edition

1971 Jeep Commando Hurst

If the Jeep Commando Hurst edition had a USPS logo on the side little would differentiate it from a mail carrier’s vehicle. The Hurst edition was a limited run of a few hundred Jeep Commandos that came with a cool Hurst dual gate shifter, blue and red racing stripes and a little half round 8,000 RPM mini tachometer mounted in a hood scoop on the Commando’s engine lid. It wasn’t fast, it was only made to look fast. A fast Jeep Commando… yes, oxymoron.

Power for the Jeep Commando Hurst cameĀ via 160hp V6 and a three speed automatic. All of the Hurst edition Jeeps came with a special order build tag and this model in Birmingham, Alabama still proudly wears it along with a whole lot of rust, dirt and neglect. However, we’re just a few days removed from Independence Day and this red, white and blue vintage 4×4 deserves a little celebration in someone’s garage. The current asking price looks to be north of $4,500. A steep price to pay for a dual gate shifter and some hood stripes, but freedom is not free, and neither is thisĀ 1971 Hurst Jeep Commando.
