I’m less confident in the price than the seller (a dealer) is, but the real reason I posted this was for that unusual spare tire cover.

“You are looking at a 1949 Willys Jeepster Overland Convertible! Solid vehicle with manual transmission and a flat 4. Just got it running and it is getting a new top and a brake job! Give me a call so we can talk about how we can make my car yours. I feel that my price of $12,000 is very realistic for a collector car like this one with the potential that this vehicle has.”

    The tire cover is very cool, old school look to it, most likely painted by hand. If I were to buy this Jeepster, and restore it, I’d leave the tire cover alone, maybe a coat of clear to preserve it. I think that’s what is missing in todays high priced restorations, they look too good, was never into that. My Jeeps, all my vehicles capture an era, not perfect, but have a look and feel of that moment in time. Somehow, this Jeepster has the LOOK BUT NOT THE PRICE.

    Mike … I hear ya. The late 1960s and 1970s had to be the golden age of painted vehicles. People did such unique stuff, from paint schemes, to imagery, to creative names, etc. In fact, given today’s printing capabilities and wraps, you’d think folks would be doing more creative things. Instead, that culture has pretty much vanished from the jeep world.
