1970 Jeepster Commando Walla Walla, WA $2500

• CATEGORIES: Jeepster

There may be some value here, but the seller is clear it’s a project.

“1970 Jeepster Commando. 231 Odd Fire V6, turbo 400, 3.31 axle ratio. The engine has a GM HEI conversion. Has a saginaw power steering conversion. Dual exhaust. Originally orange, was repainted in/out yellow some time ago. Complete Jeep, has roof rack and rear wind deflector. Missing rear seat. Does have some rust but not bad given the year and for being outside. The roof does unbolt so you can go topless.

Someone in the past replaced the 225 v6 with a newer 231 v6. I do not know the mileage of the jeep.

This is an old jeep, it will need attention and maintenance. You should expect this to be a complete project, expect to go through all systems. It does start, I just replaced the intake gasket, rebuilt the carb and changed the oil. Transmission shifts tight, cooling system works great, replaced thermostat and brakes work but I would still recommend towing it home to check it over.

Clean Oregon title/Bill of sale.

$2500 or reasonable offer, this is a lot nicer than the other commandos listed on CL in this price range. I am accepting offers as long as they are reasonable.”

New stuff includes: top(side curtains are included although not new),exhaust, tires, hubcaps, shocks, upholstery.
To be a perfect showpiece, car needs: paint, carpet, bumpers re-chromed and some other minor stuff.
Engine runs ok, I planned to rebuild it someday. Starts and runs good . Three speed transmission with overdrive, works good. Will need a clutch someday. I planned to replace the clutch when I rebuilt the motor.
Car comes with a spare 161, 6 cylinder motor, spare frame and some other misc. parts
This car is pretty solid, you could get in it and drive as-is or spend a few bucks and have a 12 to 15 thousand dollar classic.”

1968 Jeepster Commando Orangevale, CA $6500

• CATEGORIES: Jeepster • TAGS: , .

This looks like a good price.

“It’s pretty much all original, 225 Buick V-6, 3 speed manual trans, 4×4. It just had a tune-up with a new HEI ignition and new 2 barrel auto choke Holly carburetor.
I’ve only owned it for a few months, I originally bought it to build a Crawler but soon realized it would be a shame to cut up a clean survivor like this.
It was repainted by the previous owner, it’s not perfect but there is zero rust and it has lots of character.
It also comes with a metal top. $6500 OBO.”

1967 Jeepster Commando Round Lake, IL eBay

• CATEGORIES: Jeepster • TAGS: .

Glenn shared this rare half-cabbed Jeepster Commando.

“This Willys Jeepster is the 4X4 short bed clad in red and white. It has a Meyers 6′ plow – we bought it for plowing smaller areas. Seats presentable with brown leatherette. Body has some rust out – front and rear quarters and other areas. Previous owner was a mechanic who replaced original engine with a GM V6 and claimed engine was rebuilt. Jeep runs and drives. Auto transmission works and Meyers plow works good. A desirable little truck that would need panel repairs or drive as is.”

Could be a good price.

“This Jeepster has had a frame off restoration. I would not call it show room quality, but very nice and presents well. The engine has been rebuilt and it is ready to drive. There were roughly only 20,000 of these made and they are very difficult to find. The interior has all been redone and I could not find any rust on it. It has never seen the rain. The restore job was done about 20 years ago. I drove it up to my house and the gentleman I bought it from drove it around also. The title is clean.”

• CATEGORIES: Jeepster • TAGS: , .

Looks in great shape. The engine uses a modern filter.

“Nicely restored 1950 Willys Jeepster. 6 cxl. engine. Recently gone over by local mechanic and given a clean bill of health.

This car was restored in 1998. I have many picture of the restoration, Engine removed and rebuilt. Body professionally repainted. 12v. system. New carburetor. The restoration even included a CD player an AC. (The AC is under dash, did not mess up the dash, and can be easily removed)

This car sold a few years ago for $20K. (I have documentation). I purchased it for less last year. I have had fun with the car, but some priorities have changed, so now want to find it a new home.

This Jeepster runs very well and feels good at higher speed . Tires are in good shape Paint in excellent shape. Color is a deep gray and appears to have been done quite professionally. Body is in excellent condition. Top and side curtains just OK. ”

1948 Jeepster Inland Empire, CA $4800

• CATEGORIES: Jeepster

Body has been media blasted and primed.

“1948 Willys Jeepster. Rust free and very straight body which has been plastic media blasted and primed at the cost of $2700. All the interior has been done in a modern pattern/materials. The plan was to make it a driver with a 225 Buick V6 and turbo 350 which have both been completely rebuilt and included as well. The frame has not been modified yet so if you wanted to go back to the original drive train you could very easily. The original engine and trans are gone and not included. Some of the plating and polishing of the stainless has been done as well. Lots of extra parts included. A lot of time and money were spent on the project unfortunately there wasn’t enough time left to finish it. It’s a great start for someone wanting a project. Due to the location in the garage pictures are not the best.”
