Barrett-Jackson Jeeps at Scottsdale 2020

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, FC150-FC170-M677, FJ, Jeepster, Wood bodies

Several Jeeps are being auctions at this year’s Barrett-Jackson event in Scottsdale. The first few have yet to be auctioned, but some of the latter listed have already been auctioned. The CJ-2A’s price was particularly obscene.

1.  1957 FC-170
1957 Jeep FC150 4X4 with a 134.2ci 4-cylinder Hurricane engine and a 3-speed manual transmission. It features a deluxe interior, USB port and a power plug. This Jeep received a frame-off restoration.
1957-fc150-bj-az

2. 1957 Custom FC-170
Lot #1559.1 – This is a 1957 Jeep Willys that has received many modifications. A modern Chevrolet V6 engine with a 3-speed automatic transmission and conventional differential converts this former off-road vehicle to a highway cruiser. The FC stands for Forward Control. It was produced by Willys Motors, later named Kaiser Jeep from 1956-65. A very neat custom interior finishes off a great truck. It includes a former M101 military-style trailer. It features chrome gas cans and its own parking brake. Both truck and trailer are painted in Mercedes-Benz Andorite Gray.
1957-fc150-bj-az2

3. 1960 CJ-5 Wood Body (here’s a previous link for this one):
Powered by a 4-cylinder engine with a manual transmission. Completely custom-built with maple and cherry wood; 1-inch-thick wood glued and screwed every 4-inches and covered in 10 coats of varnish. **SOLD ON BONDED TITLE** **TITLE IN TRANSIT**
1960-cj5-woodbody-bj-az

4. 1960 Truck:
This 1960 Willys Custom 4×4 pickup underwent a frame-off restoration documented with photos. It’s powered by a 350ci V8 engine backed by a Turbo 400 3-speed automatic transmission. This custom pickup features front disc brakes, power steering, Scout front axle, 3/4 ton rear end and Rough Country suspension. This solid California Willys pickup was completely stripped down and disassembled for paint. Its exterior was professionally painted in Viper Red paint, while the pickup bed and underside of the body were given a red-tint LizardSkin coating. The exterior features Smittybilt front and rear bumpers, custom Fuel Wheels and brand-new Renegade all-terrain tires.

“1970 Hurst Jeepster #1
This could be the rarest production Jeep in the world
It is not known exactly how many of these were built. Some say 100 but I think more have come out of the woodwork.
From research done, there’s no solid record of the Hurst build numbers. There is a registry and this one is the earliest number out there. This may be the one pictured in the showroom photo. I have only seen 2 Hurst Jeepsters with the blue stripe that runs side to side in front of the red stripe. Only the really early ones.
Has the luggage rack
Has the rare Hurst badges (not aftermarket). I tried to have a company rechrome all the original emblems, but they were too pitted. The hurst badges are not pot metal, so they chromed up real nice.
The hood scoop had been stolen years before I got this vehicle. The one on there currently is a reproduction and made to look old. The tach was stollen with the scoop, but the Dixco hood tach is what is put in there now.
The wheels and tires are brand new. Have about 5 miles on the tires. I drove it to a car show and back.

1969 Jeepster Commando Stoughton, WI $3500

• CATEGORIES: Jeepster • TAGS: , , .

Someone created this custom Commando out of what was probably a rusted body.

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/458282124826200/

“V6 225 3 speed T14 manual transmission. It was redone to look nice with rustoleum tractor red paint and filler. It has wood floor and homemade truck bed. I redid brakes and have it running well. Plow pump was removed. Unique and road worthy, but not highway worthy yet. Not many out there and would be great off-road as 4wd works.”
