1977 Jeep II Concept 02

Jeep II -

The Jeep II was a concept car from 1977.

Fuel economy concerns and the industry’s embryonic "downsizing" movement prompted the Jeep II of 1977, one of several concept vehicles AMC displayed late in that decade.

This scaled-down version of the CJ-5 preserves the ruggedness and fun-to-drive character of the popular CJ series.

The Jeep II is two feet shorter and nine inches lower, and the wheelbase, at 76 inches, is eight inches shorter.

With less weight, a lower center of gravity, and more angular front end and fender styling, the Jeep II represented a return to the nimble efficiency and no-nonsense character of the wartime original.
