As a rule, Hurst used to be a company that was more than happy to partner with just about any automaker that walked through the door. While we're plenty familiar with vehicles like the Hurst Oldsmobile 442, more obscure relics like the 1980 Hurst Shawnee International Harvester Scout and this Jeep Jeepster Commando also populate the pages of the company's history books. Details like one very patriotic stripe package, a hood scoop and a hood-mounted tachometer all help set this Jeepster apart from its kin. Of course, a Hurst gated automatic shifter and appropriate badges are also part of the package.

This particular example is up for bid with only a few hours left on the auction. The price has inched up to $7,500 with the reserve still not met. With a shave over 73,000 miles on the odometer and one of the cleanest Jeepster bodies we've ever seen, this particular Commando is a little bit of work away from being a unique museum piece. Head over to eBay Motors for a closer look.

      My first car was a Jeepster Commando, green and black. Fun truck.

      I knew a guy who had a 60s Pontiac GTO with a factory-installed Hurst "his-and-hers" shifter. That is, the gated automatic shifter that we see everywhere now on cars.

      It looks like they were a few years early with the Bicentennial paint scheme. :-)

      This isn't a 1970... The last year they looked like this was 1967, in 68' they changed the front end to fit the straight 6 from AMC. I had a 67' Jeepster, it was awesome.

        1971 was the changeover to the square front end. The turn signals are right for that year too. I had a 1969 with the Dauntless and it had that same front end.
