“1950 Willy Overland Jeepster, an older restoration done over 20 years ago but still looks nice. It runs and drives nice, except 2nd gear pops out of gear when you release pressure off the accelerator pedal. I am not a mechanic but I think it may need a clutch adjustment. Excellent condition top and side curtains, no holes or rips. Nice black and red exterior and interior. New tires with Willy’s hubcaps. Converted to 12 volt for convenience. Priced very fair for a collector and fun classic car. I will be posting pictures in a few days or so. No low ball offers please! ”
UPDATE: Still Available.

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.”
