Looks great with that “Rocket” engine. A couple things don’t work.
“This is a one of a kind Jeepster. The Jeepsters were made until 1950 but those sold in 1951 were registered as 51’s, such is the case here. It currently has a mid 50’s Oldsmobile Rocket 324 cubic inch V8 with the (slim jim)hydromatic trans. The car went thru a amateur renovation 5 years ago but is holding up quite well. The paint still shines and the custom upholstery us unused. The car is rarely driven hence the reason for selling. The top is 5 years old but the car is rarely used and always kept under cover. The side curtains(windows) have never been used and are still new. The engine runs like a top and is quite powerful especially in a car as light as the Jeepster. The 4 speed auto trans shifts clean and hard. The after market turn signals work. This car attracts a great deal of attention when driven. Reasonable offer will be considered. The car is absent a heater and the wind shield wipers don’t work and it has no radio.”
This is worth a look.
“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.”
This might be worth a look.
“I have owned this car since 1993 , has always been under cover and rarely driven. The paint is 6 years old and still shines. There is no rust on this car. The custom cloth upholstery is like new . The chassis is original and has been rebuilt. The V-8 Oldsmobile engine is a mid 50’s 324 cu in 340 lb torque and runs very strong. The automatic transmission is the 4 speed hydromatic of that area and shifts clean and hard. This is a fun car to drive. There are still a few odds and ends to contend with but it is road worth and starts easily. You are invited to view the car before making offers. If this add is still here it is still for sale. The top is new as well as the side curtains(window).”
Looks ready for a cruise.

“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.”

“1950 Willy’s Jeepster, Chrysler
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.
