1951 Wagon Long Beach, Ca $6900

• CATEGORIES: Jeep Rods, Willys Wagons • TAGS: .

I can’t say I’ve seen a double barrel shotgun shifter.  This does need a little work.

“Up for sale is a 1951 Willys Wagon with a newer rebuilt Chevy 283 motor with a 350 trans, runs real well. Wagon has custom exhaust, vintage octogon wooden sterring wheel, new tires, great brakes, all lights work, custom double barrel shotgun shifter, with the original BLACK License plates! Wagon was lowered 3 inches and has a real nice stance. Interior is all there but will evenutally need some updating, has original bench seat, with a slot in the back for another one, original wood paneling on the floor, and gauges. Windows have some cracks but i think it adds charecter seeing they are all original, windows go up and down as they should but are a bit tight. Doors both open but will need some work to get them to open, close, and lock as they should, all pretty standard for a car thats 60 years old. Only rust spot is right below the drivers side cowel, no other rust noted. The bottom was completly sprayed with undercoat protectant POR 54, the car really looks clean and O have yet to see antother one on the road.

Overall runs really well, hits 65 mph on the freeway no problem and will run all day, no overheating what so ever. She leaks oil as all old cars do but nothing out of the ordinary, it does have slight blowby coming out of the valve cover vents, needs a PCV valve installed.
I have the hood and the front fenders and they will come with the car, they will need to be extended about 5 inches to fit the front end again due to extending the front grill to install an aftermarket electric fan. Easy work and can be done at any metal fab shop.

Want a car that turns heads every day, this is the one. Would make a killer surf wagon or beach crusier!

Looking for $6,900.00 obo or trades worth the same value, possibly a little up or down. Not looking for an car or truck newer than 1970 unless its a muscle car, prefer running and street legal with all documents. Vintage motorcylces are a possibility.
I have the pink.

Please no junk and no lowball offers. I have pleanty of pics. shoot me an offer and or email me with questions, leave a phone number and I will call you right back!!”

1948 Jeepster Brunswick, Oh eBay

• CATEGORIES: Jeep Rods, Jeepster • TAGS: , .

This looks like a great summer cruiser.

“2 Door Convertible Roadster Phaeton Jeepster.
This is an “ALL STEEL” vehicle. No fiberglass or body filler. It is also a “Rust Free” vehicle with no body or floor panel repairs/replacements. The custom body work and paint job was professionally done in California before the current owner purchased the vehicle. Most likely around 8-10 years ago. The paint is holding up very well. There are no problems with chipping, cracking, fading, checking, fish eyes or orange peel. True show quality paint job. This all steel two door/convertible body is fairly stock. There are a few unique modifications that were done to the original body. The stock flat front ’48 hood and grille were replaced with more desirable, better looking ’50 setup. The hood then had “Louvers” cut into it. A custom front splash shield was also fabricated. The front turn signals lights where relocated into the grille area to help keep the front end clean looking. The rear portion of the vehicle received custom tail lights that were set and fitted into the body. The rear wheel fender skirts were welded in place. (Again, all steel body work.) It has smooth body lines with the front and rear bumpers removed. The two-tone color scheme was influenced by the gorgeous 1950’s Ford vehicles which use these colors. The ’57 peach color is called “Sunset Coral”. With a color as nice as this, A nickname was given to the vehicle. “Just Peachy” which is hand painted on the rear. The side metallic candy stripes are also outlined with a hand painted pin stripe which really makes the whole vehicle stand out. (much more about this on eBay)

1959 Wagon Rio Rancho, NM **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Jeep Rods, Racing, Willys Wagons • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $19,950.

“I have an absolutely awesome 59 Willys Wagon Pro Street. It has a professionally built full square tube chassis and a Mustang 2 front end with rack and pinion steering. The 14 point cage was certified for 8.80s about 16 years ago. This was a drag car converted to a 9.0 second pro street car. It has a full roller, blown small block 400 punched to a 406 with an 8 quart oil pan, MSD ignition, E curve distributor and Wiend 671 Blower . Included are two 750 demon blower carbs and Dart 230 pro heads. Has NOS (never hooked up, never tried). The trans is a built Turbo 350 with a 3500 stall converter. Also has a 15 gallon fuel cell, wheelie bars and fan cooled oil and trans oil coolers under the rear. Dana 60 with 4.10s and detroit locker. Engine and trans have about 700 miles on them.

Wheels and Tires: Front and rear wheels are draglites. Rear tires are Mickey Thompson 33×19.5×15 Sportsman Pros. Front tires – Front Runners

HP? How does 650-750 sound?!?! And that’s without the 250 shot of nitrous! Can you say better than sex?!?!?

So let’s talk about what all of the above would cost. Buying the vehicle before engine and other grades – $30,000 with full square tube chassis, rack and pinion, etc. The engine alone would cost approximately $22,000 (with blower, etc.) NOS $1,000. Turbo 350 trans with stall converter another $1,500. Oil and Trans oil coolers $1,000. So all in – to build it yourself (AND THAT’S IF YOU COULD FIND ONE!) would cost you $55,000+!!!!!”
