You can not see it directly, but it exists in many designs. The classic Jeeps are now built from the Kaiser Coperation. The Wagoneer is available as a six-seater station wagon with a large, enclosed cargo space and as pickup (drawing). In addition to various interiors in front with either a three seats bank or individual seats one can choose between two different wheelbases and respectively two weight classes. Further it's there as a two-and four wheel engine, the latter either even in front with the independent wheel suspension of the rear-wheel drive.

At the wheel need only a single lever that protrudes from the carpet. Otherwise the floor is empty by the gear shift at the steering wheel and the hand brake as foot pedal. However under the dashboard warning lights indicate under the dashboard center the choice of the mode of driving. At this time the automatic transmission still is optinal, as the car is delivered normally with manual transmission.

Otherwise the car is especially useful. One points out in the prospectus on the easy access to the not particularly high vehicle floor. Besides one is proud on the 82 ° door opening angle. The interior comes in vinyl, an easy-care issue, which is typical of the time. Not quite as usual is the 12V alternator. Loading is the station wagon of two wide-opening doors right and left. It is assured that the car also fully loaded safely remains mobile.

It is worthwhile to take a look at the 'Tornado' engine. It will be called the only production engine in the U.S. at this time with an overhead camshaft and is only found in Jeep vehicles. By hemispherical combustion chambers it can condense relatively high. Apparently he is also exemplary in specific fuel consumption, which appears of course in cooperation with the wheel-drive technology somewhat different. To grease at least only every 50,000 km, oil change every 5000 km.               Top of page               Index
