Jeep were owned by the American Motor Company (AMC) in the mid-1970s, and they responded to the growth of the leisure industry by building a modern version of the military Jeep: the CJ-7. The new vehicle had a longer wheelbase and Hot six-cylinder power, and was also the first jeep to become available with a Turbo-I Hydramatic gearbox. Hard top and soft top versions were available, but they all used the same rugged separate ladder-style frame which was almost identical to I hat used on the World War II Jeeps. Semi-elliptical springs were used all around on I lie twin-live axle set-up, with part-time four-wheel drive coming on the manual version and the Quadratrac permanent four-wheel drive being optional on both the manual and automatic. As many were used off-road, the Jeep came with a four-point roll cage, but otherwise was little changed styling-wise from the original Jeep shape.
