1949 Jeepster Westhampton, NY **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Jeepster

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was Make Offer

Engine is not running.

“Here we have a very solid 1949 Willys Jeepster ( Arguably the most desirable & loved American autos ever made, only about 9,000 Jeepsters 4 x 2 were made between 1946 & 1949 ) this one with a Buick V6 transplant & two speed power Glide! Car was restored about 12 years ago. We to tooled around with our kids in her for about 6 summer but now car is not running, I believe it has a bad ground somewhere -car is dead when you turn the key. Very hard to find a Jeepster in this good a condition – but will certainly need some TLC – some minor body work & a new Vinyl a top will definitely be needed. Note: I do have a set of the original rims.

Family love affair may be over – but this is not a fire sale, but we’re throwing it out there to see if there are any interested Parties. My guess is it should sell between $3,500 & $5,500 bring your best offer”

He wrote, This is very similiar to one of the hunting cars used on the King Ranch. The Kenndy Ranch mentioned in the arcticle is adajcent to the King Ranch. Below is a picture of the car made for the King Ranch. (From this link to the University of Texas)

1949 Jeepster Western MA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Jeepster • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $10,900.

This looks good.

“A really fun and iconic driver quality convertible that’s a blast to drive. It gets many “thumbs up” from other drivers. Simply fun and unique
Not a concourse car, but a open touring car with a tremendous amount of character.
Powered by a overhead valve four cylinder engine, coupled to a three speed (“three on the tree”) manual transmission, its simply fun to drive.
A older restoration, it runs and drives well, with many new parts. Its tobacco canvas top with ash wooden ribs is in great condition.
Produced from 1948 through 1951 they are a classic, antique, vintage, representation of times past and a collectible investment.”
