My husband passed away 4 months ago. He was ill for a year and was not able to tinker with the Jeep as he normally did. He originally was asking more money for it, but I need to move it and I am asking $10,0000, but I am willing to negotiate on the price.
Car was started a few weeks ago, but I didn’t want to run it but a short time so it didn’t mess up Carb.

“1970 Jeepster Commando for sale. Dauntless 225 V6 with an Turbo 400 Transmission. 4×4.
Just rebuilt the carb, brand new brakes, new battery, nice big mud rover tires.
Has the hard top which can sometimes sell for $1000 by itself.
The jeep runs well once you get it going but I’m don’t have the time or know how to finish it up right.
It starts up with a little help but I just can’t get it running quite right, also the wiring needs some work. Someone with a bit more know how should be able to make this a great car all around and will be a ton of fun to drive.
The interior is in great shape and paint is original as far as I can tell.
Any questions please let me know
Please use craigslist email to inquire”

(11/23/2016) “1950 Willys Jeepster. Must have been a left over 1949 titled as a 1950. 1950 title but has dash and front end like a 1949. This car came from the original owner. This was a body off work. All work was done on a rotesory. All paint was stripped to bare metal. Pictures are available that document the whole process. All rust was removed and replaced with metal. The windshield has been chopped three inches. The floor pan was removed and replaced with an Ford Escort floor pan. The escort bucket seats were recovered and the console and floor shifter are from the Escort. It has a rebuilt Ford 200 cu inch 6 cylinder with a c5 transmission and a ford 8 inch rear end. Aluminum radiator with electric fan. New gas tank and lines. New brake lines. New bumpers. All new wiring with Painless fuse panel.. This is a fun car to drive and is a real attention getter. We have more comments with this car than any we have ever owned. Great driver, runs great.”
