Left-Over Parts CJ-2A/Jeepster

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, Jeepster

I can’t remember if I shared this one or not. So, here we go (possibly again) … This oddity was built from parts left over from projects. The pics were shared on Facebook, but unfortunately I didn’t save the post, so I can’t tell you who built this.

“A total of 19,000 Jeepsters were made between 1948 and 1951, but only 1900 were made in 1949. This has been called the last of the American Phaetons. This is not a show car, but a beautiful driver that has been in the family for over 30 years. I have used it in my Magic shows for the last 20 years. It is with great sorrow that I’m selling this part of our family but I am unable to drive it enough to keep; it is time to let someone else enjoy what our family have enjoyed so much.

Many extras: here are just a few
Buick 231 V-6 – very low mileage
Mustang II front end
New custom soft top
New side curtains
Must see to appreciate.

I am a retiring magician, and will be selling my costumes, collections, and working tricks and illusions as well as assorted items I have collected along the way; so many things, so little time, but working on making it yours, not mine.”

UPDATE: This is a SCAM. This was a reply one reader received.

“I’m Janice, glad to see you are interested! The price is $13,100. This belonged to my husband and after he passed away I decided to sell it. I moved at my daughter because I had a throat surgery and I’ll stay here for at least a few months. I’m located in Sioux City, IA. I have signed a contract with eBay to take care of the selling on my behalf. It is already at the shipping company here in Sioux City sealed and ready for the shipping. The deal includes free delivery and it will arrive at your address in 7-9 days, depending on the exact location. You will have 5 days to try out prior to making any purchase and if by any reason you find something you don’t like about it you can send it back at my expense.”

1948-jeepster-pensacola-fl1 1948-jeepster-pensacola-fl2 1948-jeepster-pensacola-fl3 1948-jeepster-pensacola-fl4

“A very nice HISTORIC convertible ready to go.
Orig 4 cyl engine and 3 speed column transmission. Both were overhauled by previous owner who died before finishing his pride and joy. The car has lived it’s whole life in Oklahoma, and was finished by his son and then sold to dealer at estate auction.
The mileage reads 23,247. Cars runs great, shifts easy and rides smooth. Lights, brake lights and horn all work. It was repainted years ago in it’s original yellow color. Wide white wall poly tires are in excellent condition and run smooth. Brakes are very good and stop better than my truck. The car has no radio (optional in “48) and no heater (also optional) and your arm is the turn signal (I have TS kit that goes with the car). All these can easily be retro-fitted. The gas gauge is erratic but I have a complete extra dash that goes with car that will fix that problem. The orig generator has been replaced with a new 6v alternator for better spark and starting (old gen goes with the car).
All chrome is excellent, no rust. Floor pan has been replaced
The top canvas and back glass is in excellent condition and easily goes up and down, manually.
I purchased the car a couple of years ago. I have done some minor work on it but my 83 years have finally caught up with me and seriously limit my efforts.”

The motor is seized, and I took the head off to see the pistons were rusted. I was going to pull the pistons and rering it plus a valve job, but now I need the shop. The interior is in great shape and top also is in great shape with all the windows. This will be a great driver after the mechanical is done, with a nice body.”
