“This 1971 Jeepster Commando SCI and the 1971 Jeepster Hurst Edition were built for only a couple of months or so making them the rarest Jeeps ever built. Only around 300 of each were ever built and around 125 Hurst Editions are known to exist and less SC1’s are known to survive making it the rarest Jeep known.

I bought it pretty much as is a few years ago adding the wheels and tires. Everything mechanical was rebuilt like the V6 engine and upgraded in horsepower with 4bbl carb, turbo 400 tranny both rear end and front end. Power Steering and Power brakes were added and an aftermarket stereo replaces the original radio and unfortunately small refinements were made to the dash to get an earlier edition radio to fit.

1971 Jeepster Commando “Hurst Edition” Lexington, SC eBay

Bill spotted this neglected Hurst Edition Jeepster Commando. The bid price is $2900 with a day + to go. More discussion on this Jeepster here.

View all the information on ebay

1971-hurst-jeepster-commando-sc

“This is a 1971 Super rare Hurst edition Jeepster Commando. From research there is apparently only about 150 of these made that were sent to the HURST company to have some graphics added, hood scoop, tach and few other accessories. This one is a manual transmission and from all appearances appears to the original transmission which makes this one even possibly more rare. The trim tag and markings on the firewall are consistant with Hurst edition markings. The emblems on the hood are there, but are pitted a little bit.

I had hoped to get to this Jeep, but just not going to happen and it needs to go to a worthy home to get fully saved. It does need a full gone through or restoration. Almost all the pieces are there, The motor is in it, but has not been turned over. The radiator is not in place. The original hood scoop is not there but I do have a new old stock hood but it is not in perfect condition. Certainly usable for a restoration but not perfect. We could not find or have the original tach that was mounted in the hood scoop. Continue reading

This 1959 Jeepster project out of Lake Havasu City, AZ, has an unusual top. It looks like a hardtop of some type and seems to fit the Jeepster well. The large side window isn’t. very stylish, but the smaller one seems to fit the top. Anyone seen a top like this?

“Jeepster with running 4 cylinder 134cu.in flathead original engine and three speed with overdrive transmission. This is not a restoration. It runs (sounds good), works in all gears, (I do not know about the overdrive) has a new paint job. There is a new-inbox top and the bumpers have been re-chromed. The upholstery need to be redone with the proper padding. The rust is present but light for this type of auto. This is a great Jeepster to restore or make a car for cruising the foothill or your neighborhood. Title is in my name as non-op.
Look at the pictures and get in touch with me with your questions.
I have two other Jeepsters that will post soon.”

“1951 Willys JEEPSTER touring car. Rare 6 cylinder flathead engine. 3 speed transmission with overdrive. Runs ands drives. There were very few 6 cylinder models made and even less still around. All early Jeepsters were 2WD. This car has been converted to 12 volt with alternator. This car has been stored indoors for the last 15 years. This is a good project car with no apparent damage and very little rust. It comes with 5 original wheels and 5 original hubcaps. It also has a spare soft top frame. It has a clear title and current Non-Op since it was last registered a few years ago. The odometer reads 00068.5 miles. I have more photos. This car has been sitting for several years. It starts and runs. Selling As/Is. No warranty. Asking $8500. Make me an offer, the worst I will say is ‘No thanks’ This is NOT a Wrangler! Facebook has no listing for Willys and you must select a current vehicle to list.”

“I purchased this Willy’s as it was in a off the frame restoration. It has been disassembled and all the parts I was given are still sitting in my barn. The Willy’s was soda blasted and all paint removed. It has since started to surface rust, I don’t want to see all the work lost. I am unable to complete the project and am will to sell. These were marketed from 1948 to 1951, the Jeepster Phaeton was a rather expensive niche vehicle and though admired by many, it was purchased by relatively few. What you see is what you’re buying except for the picture of the beautiful finished Willy’s. I included it as to show how this project was to turn out if I was to finish it.”
