This has an unusual paint job.
“This vehicle was restored by WWII veteran and used in parades when we bought it. It was meant to be a fun “driver”. We used it primarily in the mountains of Pennsylvania (Sullivan County) to ride mostly paved roads but also on dirt backroads during the summer and in “Jeep Rallys”.We have had so much fun with this one but my wife bought a newer (2011) and I’ve decided to sell this to work on my 1950 Jeepster. People love it and always want their picture with it. It would also be a great Patriotic attraction for a business. The top is rarely used but fits and seals well. We are selling without reserve for much less than we have in it and hope it finds a good home for someone who appreciates it.”

“BEAUTIFUL COLLECTOR CAR – MUST SEE! beautiful restored extremely RARE A few years ago this Jeepster was brought down from Ohio (where it was assembled in Toledo), to Florida and 85% was overhauled brining her back to it’s ORIGINAL beauty. Be one of the few to own one of these amazing cars, you never see these at the shows and it will draw a lot of attention! This Jeepster has just over 40,000 miles on her. ZERO RUST and ALWAYS Garage Kept! There was only 19,000 of these made between 48-50, and only 3 or 4,000 are known to be remaining left in the world! Full frame off restorations these go for over $40k. Take this one for just $23,999! Priced right to sell.Just replaced: Water pump, Battery, Whitewall Firestone Tires, Convertible Soft top, During the restoration the bodywork was done with no short cuts taken, Beautiful high quality Bright Shinny RED Paint, New Chrome, Under Carriage was undercoated, Motor Rebuilt, new Shocks. New Interior.. The list just goes on and on.. too much to list. Everything works & Drive as it should.”
Might be a good price.
“Willys Jeepster, 1949 all original. needs new side curtains and rear window. This is a very rare car.”
I wonder what’s under the wood on the back.
“This is from the “1950 ty” street rod. It was done back then and is that way today. It has a 1955 chev 265 cu in motor with a slush box tranny. Other way it is stock with a few up date to have it run down the road”
This is for Trade only.
“Like the the title says I have a 1949 jeepster for trade only. Its got mustang front suspension and a chevy small block about 21,000 miles on it. Weld wheels Runs and drives great. Needs a little tlc on the paint some chips but no dents or damage. Nice top side windows great summer toy. These are hard to find only three years produced. Will consider all trades besides motorcycles, boats or anything newer than 1972 unless really nice and custom and bagged”
Might make an easy restoration.
“car was restored 28 years ago , driven few times, been stored in a garage since, hasn’t been touched for 9 years until it was brought to my shop 10/21/15 $5500 obo may trade/ partial trade”
Looks like it might make a good project.

“Clean, rust free Jeepster, very original except for strong running Buick V6 w TH350 auto trans. Front suspension, all brakes, shocks, steering, all rebuilt this year, Bob’s speedometer rebuilt the orig gauges (expensive but correct) still in box, orig speedo is still in dash and looks, works very good. Very solid unrestored body including rust free floors & frame. Original patina paint (Chesapeake Gray – looks like black) polish and drive as is or repaint. NOS Ivory steering wheel w orig center cap installed, orig seats in good shape. Top replaced 1980s – have all side curtains in great shape. Great driver. Goes a bit. To a good home for Best Offer closest to $9000.”
Runs and drives, but not original.
“Registered in CA as 1950 Willy’s but sits on 1980 Toyota drive train. Upgraded engine,brakes and suspension. $4,000.00 or possible trade for truck. Runs and drives good. Call after 4:00 pm”
UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $900
Here is an odd one I spotted on Facebook. It reminds me of Bob’s odd Jeepster-like vehicle.
“This is a very strange “Jeep like” vehicle that is not a Jeep. I was told that it was possibly a specialty vehicle built in the 60s and that it originally had a 4 or 6 cylinder engine that the previous salvage yard owner removed and sold. 2 wheel drive. No seats or top frame. It has full length curved metal running board fenders that Jeeps never had. It also has a center console that housed the shifter. It was originally painted a coral pink color so the possibility exists that it was a resort shuttle vehicle. It is NOT, repeat NOT, a Jeep Surrey model! They look nothing like this “thing”. No engine or transmission. I saved it from a salvage yard over 10 years ago. It has 14 inch “A.J. Foyt” mag wheels that probably are original. Rusty but restorable. Buy it for $900 firm, fix it up, and have the only one out there.”
Carson is selling his Jeepster project.
“Selling my 1968 Jeepster C-101 Commando. It was Jeep’s version of the Ford Bronco and IH Scout. It has a SOLID frame, I just painted the whole thing. Has a nice big front brushguard with D ring hooks too. Front and rear ends are good, both Dana’s with 5 bolt hubs. Front hub lockers (Warn I think), new rear leaf spring packs, and solid front ones.
It has a BUILT Dauntless 225 V-6 (Factory motor). This motor has been completely gone through! New connecting rods, Isky Cams and Cranks, Isky lifters and valves, EVERY gasket has been replaced, and I also have all the extras. New distributor cap, newer plug wires, new spark plugs, a new water pump, new alternator, and most of the hardware has been replaced with grade 8. It will need an alternator bracket and radiator.
Looks like a fun ride.

Might be worth a look.

“SOLID 1950 WILLYS ,RUNS AND DRIVES GREAT, RARE FIND,4 CYL.,OVERDRIVE”
It doesn’t run.
“1949 Willys Overland Jeepster. Vehicle has a Ford 200 6 cyl that does not run, everything else is all original. Very little rust in the lower rear quarter panel. Otherwise very solid body. I have the top bows.”
Reminds me of a pink surrey.
“I have a nice little restoration project for sale, Its a convertible and no holes in the body just minor surface rust. I do have some parts for the restoration. It has a new chevrolet motor and tranny never been started in it. Great project for the right collector or family ??”
UPDATE: Was $850. **SOLD**
Might be some parts value here.
“This is a 1951 Willys Overland Jeepster. I bought it to turn into a hot rod, but ran into another that was partially built, so this one became a parts rig. It has no floor and no steering column. I have most of the trim for this as well as the windshield, seats (most) and the top. These are known for their very solid frames which have a LARGE X brace in the middle, so you can add your horsepower with little worry. For an extra $300 I’ll throw in an AMC Pacer front suspension I was gong to install. It’s a nearly perfect fit and gives you independent front suspension, power rack and pinion steering and disc brakes, much better than the original transverse left spring setup. The only thing I’ll need to keep for my own project is the back seat frame. I have another, but this one is nicer. Good Ohio title in hand.”
Glenn forwarded this nice looking Jeepster.
“Two owner car from Yuma, Arizonia …….no rust, near perfect condition,all original. Older restoration new top and carpets in the past two years.

Merlin has the Jeepster for sale. He’s done some work on it, so feel free to contact him with questions.
This might make a good restoraiton.
“This was the last true touring car made in the United States. None of the Willys Jeepsters were made in four wheel drive. The body is straight, and ran as recently as six years ago. No body parts are missing. Little or no rust. V6 Buick engine. Needs new brake lines before it can be driven. Kept in heated garage. Ugly oxidized pink paint with matching tuck&roll. Makes everybody smile even unrestored. Firm on price. ”
