Looks similar to one of the “Tenders”. Looks good for the price. Might need a little work?
“This thing was built by a dear friend and co-worker at Gilbert’s Jeeps. He passed away this past April. He worked on Rat Willie for a couple of years. Being fair, I would say it is not exactly finished, but then that would be up to the buyer. Lots of differing ideas about such things.
The Willys body, which is a chopped down panel wagon, sits on a Chevy S10 Blazer frame. It has a 350 Chevy V8 with a Turbo 400 Auto transmission.”
UPDATE: Price dropped to $21,400.

“One of a kind ex show truck. Chop top, sedan delivery, Vista Cruiser wagon roof, tubbed rear with a nine inch Ford. One very cool piece of vintage memorabilia. At one time this truck was a show winning street beast. It sat neglected for years and now needs a total redo. It has rust, especially on the passenger side fender and hood. I have a very nice hood and perfect fender to go with it. The only parts I don’t have is a decent passenger door bottom and rocker. These can be built or bought. I also have a very clean stock Willys dash for it. Continue reading

Lots of details to this build.
“Titled as a 1949 Jeep. This fabulous Jeep Rat Rod is an award-winning build completed in 2010. This car was built using a brand new body that was professionally shortened 16″ and mounted to a brand new frame. Mechanically this Jeep has been completely rebuilt, including the 4 cylinder Willys engine and 3-speed manual transmission. This one-of-a-kind Jeep has more features than there is room to mention, including a 30-caliber machine gun that has been decomissioned and for display only with tail gunner seat, authentic bomber aircraft steering yoke used as the steering wheel, laser cut D-Day battle star in hood and side painted weathered D-day emblems, aircraft dash gauges and military switches, authentic military bomber seats and machine gun barrel shrouds mounted on upright exhaust mounts. The attention to detail is fabulous on this professionally built rod.”
The builder of this jeep (who isn’t the seller) had an unusual solution for the front driveline. Not sure why it is attached at all. The seller also provides full disclosure that it shouldn’t be driven faster than 55mph.
