“Is it a classic Bronco? No it’s a classic Jeepster Commando!

Rare Deluxe model with 3 speed stick shift, selectable 4×4, power hydraulic top, factory continental kit with spare wheel, towing hitch and Deluxe 2 tone white and teal interior.

I’ve just spent thousands servicing the transmission. Rebuilt with new parts.

Selectable 4wd and freewheeling hubs.

Deluxe wheels.

New soft top in white vinyl with all padding and seals.

New hydraulic package with pistons and piping replaced. New roof switch.

Powerful Buick (Dauntless) V6 motor starts and runs well. Engine has been painted.

This truck is in a staggeringly beautiful aquamarine metallic teal with white accents. The chrome is in good shape and the floors are rust free.

Just needs surfboards and a new owner!”

1950 Jeepster JeepRod Chattaroy, WA $26,000

• CATEGORIES: Jeep Rods, Jeepster

Lots of interesting customizations on this Jeepster.

“Full Custom 1950 Willys Jeepster. It just doesn’t get more unique or custom than this. Powered by a great running Chevy 350 with throttle body fuel injection spinning a 5-speed manual tranny. Sits on a Mustang II type suspension with disc brakes up front and drums in rear. Has a custom built interior, console, and a dash off a ‘40 Ford fitted with 3rd generation Firebird gauges and tilt steering. The hardtop is removable making it a slick little roadster to enjoy. It also has shaved door handles and the custom built tonneau cover for all your goodies.
Painted in a vibrant metallic blue with a bit of tasteful pin striping throughout. Deep old school rumble coming out the cherry bombs on each side. $26,500 seems like a very good deal for you from me. Let’s see what you think. You could not build this car for anything near that. I have gone thru the car nose to toes to make it safe and realizable. I have thousands of dollars of receipts that will go with the car. For the person that wants a very good and distinctive clean driver classic.”

• CATEGORIES: Jeepster

This seems worth a look at this price.

“1967 Jeepster Commamdo Runs, drives and stops as it should. This is an old Jeepster. The questions in the past have been: what is the top speed, will it make a 1000 trip, what is the mileage? I answer the same way to each one of these: it’s a 56 year old Jeepster”

1950 Jeepster Ray, OH $13,000

• CATEGORIES: Jeepster

It’s been parked for a few years.

“1950 Willys Jeepster, Jeep ran when it was parked about 5 years ago. Needed break lines. Pads swelled up wile it sat. Had to pull them to get it to roll. I’m posting this for my mother. I forgot to look at the mileage. I believe it’s around 40k. If posting is still up, it’s available. The longer it’s here, the more I’ll get done to it. I plan to get it running first. Then it will get brake lines. Which also means the price goes up. Please, don’t send us low ball or pointless messages offering half price. I get messages constantly. We have planned to sell this for over a year. I’ve watched the auctions. I’ve seen some that are far worse go for 20k. The price is 13k… That’s what we need. Show me one for less.. And it’s yours for the price.”

This may be worth a look.

“This is a basically sound Jeepster that needs work. I put in a rebuilt Jeepster Jim transmission, but it still needs to have the engine wired before it will run. I am including a new wiring harness for the entire vehicle. This is the four cylinder Jeepster and ran fine before the wiring deteriorated. This Jeepster will have to be towed.”

1950 Jeepster Beech Grove, TN $9500

This is supposed to be a solid Jeepster, but will need some engine work at the very least.

`1950-jeepster-beechgrove-9 `1950-jeepster-beechgrove6 `1950-jeepster-beechgrove7 `1950-jeepster-beechgrove8

“Decided to sell our 1950 Jeepster, 6 cylinder. Even has the rare “6” emblem on the hood. Clean TN title in my name. New over the past year: tires, brake master cylinder and wheel cylinders, new aluminum radiator, rebuilt starter, rebuilt water pump, carb rebuilt (twice), plugs, plug wires, distributor cap, button, points. The engine was supposed to be rebuilt before I got it. It idled, but wouldn’t rev, prior to all the work. Slip the clutch and it pulled in 1st and reverse in the garage. Also has the overdrive unit. After the work……..nothing. I added an electronic ignition conversion, nothing. We’ve owned this for several years, always stored inside. We’ve come to understand that we will not get this car up and running and have moved on to other projects. This is a solid car that just needs someone’s magic touch, no side curtains (we have frames), and no top (we have the bows on the car).”

“Up for auction is this 1949 Willys Overland Jeepster. Very solid sheet metal, I could only find two rust through spots on it, one behind drivers door and one on the left lower hood which I took pictures of. It has light surface rust that should sand off easy. The engine turns freely, trans shift through gears and it rolls very easy. It does steer too. Gauges busted out. Car is pretty complete. Hotrod, ratrod, or restore. The serial number indicated it is a VJ2 Jeepster that was  built right around the cutoff date for 1948 models and the beginning date of Nov. 1, 1948 for the 1949 models.  With the serial number tag under the edge of the dash,

1949 Jeepster East Wenatchee, WA $5000

• CATEGORIES: Jeepster

This appears to be a project.

“Top end was rebuilt on engine but the new oil line broke causing the lower end to knock. May just need bearings which are easy to install. It was a Shriners car, so interior is not original. Carpet is indoor outdoor. Not sure of rust? Top bows are rusty and not installed. And has all but one fender steps. Rare car. Fun to drive. 6 volts, except to start is 12 volts. Not sure why they didn’t just convert it to 12 volts. Looking to sell or trade toward a 67 to 72 C10/c20 plus cash. Looking for a 67-72 c10. Box full of trim and various parts including a used working speedometer. My hands don’t work anymore so I’m not able to repair it. It’s in East Wenatchee”
