Dan spotted this Jeepster.
“This classic historical convertable is a 1949 Jeepster. First Jeep for the public after WW2. It is beautiful. The engine is the flat head 4 with 63 HP. Long stroke gives it good power. Three speed and overdrive. Very nice condition. Look at the pics of this great Jeepster. The price is the price from haggardys list on the internet. Way below the value I need the room for a remodel of the house. PRICE LOWERED. RUNS PERFECT. MY LOSS YOUR GAIN.”
This was featured in a Jeep magazine of some type.
“1948 Willys Jeepster Overland in Ferrari Red. 161-CUBIC-INCH 6-CYLINDER ENGINE. Featured in Jeep owners magazine 2006 volume 4 issue 1 “My Vintage JEEP vehicle” with the still current owner that I am helping sell the JEEPSTER for.
Here is a link to over 80 pics;
Restoration was done prior to 2006. All the chrome was done and shows nicely. At that time all was pretty well sorted out there were a few minor details that were not completed in the restoration which I was going to complete for the owner but due to personal circumstances I had to close up shop and was unable to complete these minor details. For the last couple years or so the Jeepster has be in storage. I have manuals and some odds and ends parts a spare tire cover that matches interior in red and white. Engine runs very nice. I last drove it around town about a year ago and it drove well, straight and brakes were good. Well I pulled it out of storage and took the Jeepster for a drive. As any older car thats not been used for a wile I started loosing brake pedal so the seals/cylinders well need to be checked. Check ALL the pictures they tell the story. Pretty much rust free undercarrige and pans. The only place I saw of concern is at where the back bumper area meets the body there is some small surface bubbles. see pics.
Here is what is needed or negatives
Brakes need sorting
Fuel gauge in-op
Shift linkage is a little lose, adjustment.?
Convert top latches need attention”
“Yes it runs…great! Best way to describe it is to come look at it for yourself!”
UPDATE: Price dropped to $7500.
(12/19/2013) This Jeepster deserves a closer look.

“THIS IS A TRUE 1948 WILLY’S-OVERLAND JEEPSTER. THIS VEHICLE HAS A ‘GO-DEVIL’ 4-CYLINDER ENGINE WITH A REBUILT CYLINDER-HEAD, A 3-SPEED MANUAL TRANSMISSION WITH OVERDRIVE AND A NEW CLUTCH.

VEHICLE HAS BEEN CONVERTED TO 12-VOLT. VEHICLE HAS BEEN INDOORS ALL OF IT’S LIFE. WHEN I FOUND IT, IT WAS SITTING ON BLOCKS AND ENGINE WAS DISASSEMBLED. IT NOW RUNS AND DRIVES. I HAVE TOO MANY PROJECTS AND NEVER SEEM TO BE ABLE TO GET BACK TO THIS ONE. THE HUSBAND SAY’S “IT’S TIME TO LET IT GO”, SO I’M GIVING SOMEONE ELSE THE OPPORTUNITY. IT IS CURRENTLY ‘NON-OPED’. YOU CAN VIEW HER ON SATURDAY, SUNDAY OR MONDAY’S IN SACRAMENTO. $7500.00 OR O.B.O. “

I wonder if it includes doors.
“BEEN IN STORAGE FOR THE LAST SEVEN YEARS . RUNS AND DRIVES NEEDS A LITTLE TLC……”
It’s a project. No motor or tranny.
“have a 49 willys jeepster project that I never got around to building. Its a very solid roller, solid floors solid frame that has been rolled out from under it and painted and then put back but that’s as far as I got , would make a great solid builder . and parts are readily available what you see is what you get. I’ll take 3800. I do have the title. would make a great rod or go back to stock may entertain trades but cash is king (no motor or tranny) but I know a guy who has a 4 cylinder motor for a 49 or 50 jeepster”
UPDATE: Was $16,500. Status Unknown.
Sad reason for selling the Jeepster.
“Up for sale is the last of the great American Touring cars – the 1950 Willys Jeepster Phaeton.
Car must be sold to cover bills as the owner is a cancer patient. If not sold the car will go to the estate and scrapped.
This car has been faithfully restored to the way it was when it left the factory – with a couple exceptions. Engine is the stock F-134 Hurricane and has been professionally overhauled, with less than ten miles on it.. Everything from front grill on back has been overhauled, repaired, or replaced, and works. New floor pans of the OEM type were installed. New paint has rarely seen sunshine and is a factory color scheme of Clear Maple and Black.
Needs some work, but sounds like it runs.
“1949 Willys Jeepster Convertible. All original including top. original 4 cylinder L 134 engine and transmission. The floors boards have rust holes behind the front seats and drivers foot area.
I have cleaned and sealed the fuel tank and radiator. I have purchased a new muffler and engine seal kit. The car needs to worked on and driven.
