“’50 Willys Jeepster for sale- This is a tough decision for me, but here we go…I have had this one for nearly 10 years! I never wanted to part with it, but I’m getting tired of moving it from one storage place to another. I never made time for it and yes, I feel guilty. Its time for a new owner that will move this project forward.

The car has a fantastic rust free California body. Floors are perfect. Very rare to find any 60 year old car with this nice of a body, especially a convertible. The only rust I could find is a few bubbles on the lower portion of the passenger door.

The car looks original, but has a Ford small block V8 & 3 speed stick installed. The engine swap was done so long ago, it almost looks original to the car. It has always started easily and still runs strong. It has dual exhaust and sounds like an old wooden speed boat. It will need the normal things done such as oil change, brake servicing, etc. after the long time in storage.

The previous owners named this car the “African Queen”. Before selling the car to me, they had the car completely rewired, new hoses and fuel lines, new fuel pump, rebuilt carb, front end alignment, brake service, rebuilt distributor, etc. I have receipts for approx $3200 for this work. They also were preparing to get the car painted, and included a gallon of the correct yellow paint along with the other necessary reducers/hardeners, etc. One of the front fenders had some previous repairs, so I searched for replacement. I located a perfect NOS fender that I will include along with some other parts I gathered over the years from ebay and swap meets. I also bought some new steel rims which will be included also.

The car will need a simple straightforward restoration. If you prefer, it could also make a fun driver with just a quick repaint and some TLC. The title was lost, so the car will be sold using a bill of sale. It has been in storage since 2001, so it would be off the DMV computer. I’d take $5500 cash, or may consider an interesting trade for a classic car or motorcycle. I would really like to find a decent ’63 Ford Falcon (Futura or Sprint) 2 door coupe (Must be a V8 & 4 speed).
