“1971 Hurst Jeepster Commando
One of the Rarest Jeeps Made
Up for auction is my 1971 Hurst Jeepster Commando. I purchased this 5 years ago with plans to do a frame up restore, but unfortunately have not had the time to begin the restoration. My loss, your gain.
I have not attempted to start the motor, but the previous owner stated that it will run. I have no reason to think otherwise.
Vehicle has all emblems, special build tags, and Hurst options.
Shouldn’t take much to get it back on the road, or restore as an investment.
Not just a rare vehicle, but also in a rare unmolested state.”

Slant 6, with automatic, balance stock, red interior.
Not a show car; paint shows well, nice solid driver.
Trades considered, asking $8500, more pictures available.”
UPDATE: Joe and his wife were told (more than once) this was listed at $1600 by the seller. However, according to the Craigslist ad it is $16,000. I’d say it is worth somewhere between the two prices.
Joe spotted this at the Kmart Kruse in last night in Phoenix. Looks like a really good price to me.
Joe writes, I told the seller all about eWillys and that I would be submitting these pics and some info… he liked that idea. I don’t know much (or anything, really) about these, but I know I liked this one… and was surprised at the reasonable price.
This may be a good price.

Seth spotted this ad. If you are looking for some Kaiser cars, there are a few for sale. There’s also a CJ-3B behind the Jeepster, but I didn’t see a reference about it for sale.
“My family got into the car dealership business in the early 40’s. Kaiser Willys AMC Jeep Studebaker Nash . My grandpa started the Kaiser Willys dealership in Lisbon, Ohio and had collected cars along the way. My dad took over the dealership in 1988 and stopped selling new vehicles when Chrysler took over. But continued to service old and new cars and take care of customers, Along with selling many of the Jeep parts still in the parts room today.
