1950 Jeepster Salt Lake City, Ut eBay

• CATEGORIES: Jeepster • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Back on eBay

(04/22/2010) Here’s a solid look Jeepster that hasn’t been restored yet.

“THIS IS A GREAT LITTLE 1950 WILLYS JEEPSTER FRESH OUT OF THE BARN……..I BOUGHT THIS JEEP ABOUT 35 YEARS AGO FROM THE ORIGINAL OWNER, WHICH MAKES ME THE SECOND OWNER…….THIS JEEPSTER WAS ORIGINALLY BOUGHT NEW IN NEW HAMPSHIRE, AND DRIVEN TO UTAH IN THE 1960’S…….I PURCHASED IT AND HAVE HAD IT IN STORAGE EVER SINCE, WAITING FOR ME TO GET THE TIME TO RESTORE IT…….IT HAS ALWAYS RUN GREAT…..IT IS  MECHANICALLY ALL ORIGINAL,  WITH 4 CYLINDER OVER HEAD VALVE (F-HEAD) HURRICANE ENGINE, THREE SPEED TRANSMISSION, AND OVER DRIVE……THE JEEP WILL NEED A NEW BATTERY, FRESH FUEL, AND PROBABLY A TUNE UP, SINCE IT HAS BEEN SITTING FOR SEVERAL YEARS. WE ALSO REMOVED THE OLD GLAS BECAUSE IT WAS YELLOWING AND WE WANTED TO PUT NEW GLASS IN…..WE WEREN’T ABLE TO FINISH THAT PROJECT, SO IT WILL NEED SOME NEW GLASS….IT’S ALL FLAT GLASS, SO WON’T BE TOO EXPENSIVE. THE BODY ON THIS JEEP IS JUST ABOUT PERFECT, VERY SOLID, WITH NO RUST THROUGH,  OTHER THAN A HOLE IN THE DIVER’S SIDE FLOOR BOARD, WHICH HAS BEEN PATCHED AT ONE TIME LONG AGO, AND WILL NEED TO BE PATCHED AGAIN. THIS CAR IS AN EXCELLENT CANDIDATE FOR RESTORATION, SINCE IT IS VERY STRAIGHT AND MECHANICALLY ALL ORIGINAL. CLEAR TITLE……”

1968 Commando Spokane, Wa $11,999

• CATEGORIES: Jeepster

Here’s a beautiful Commando!

“1968 Jeepster Commando.  I have owned this fantastic Jeep for several years. I personally (and the previous owner) have completely renovated and improved this classic from bumper to bumper. I have over $19,000 in receipts for just the improvements not including the $4,000 paint job.

Newer 4.3 liter GMC Vortec V-6 from a 1995 Jimmy. Installed when it had 24,000 miles. It now has less than 36,000 and runs as you would expect (like new!) It is the ideal size for a retro-fit and has more-than-plenty of power and torque. Good gas mileage too. I have been using synthetic blend oil. It does not use any oil nor leak a drop, and of course, does not ever smoke. Lots and lots of new stuff under the hood including new radiator and steel fan. Matching wiring harness and correct wiring through-out. Computerized fuel pump …”

1950 Jeepster Ventura County, Ca $5500

• CATEGORIES: Jeepster

This has no title.

“’50 Willys Jeepster for sale- This is a tough decision for me, but here we go…I have had this one for nearly 10 years! I never wanted to part with it, but I’m getting tired of moving it from one storage place to another. I never made time for it and yes, I feel guilty. Its time for a new owner that will move this project forward.

The car has a fantastic rust free California body. Floors are perfect. Very rare to find any 60 year old car with this nice of a body, especially a convertible. The only rust I could find is a few bubbles on the lower portion of the passenger door.

The car looks original, but has a Ford small block V8 & 3 speed stick installed. The engine swap was done so long ago, it almost looks original to the car. It has always started easily and still runs strong. It has dual exhaust and sounds like an old wooden speed boat. It will need the normal things done such as oil change, brake servicing, etc. after the long time in storage.

The previous owners named this car the “African Queen”. Before selling the car to me, they had the car completely rewired, new hoses and fuel lines, new fuel pump, rebuilt carb, front end alignment, brake service, rebuilt distributor, etc. I have receipts for approx $3200 for this work. They also were preparing to get the car painted, and included a gallon of the correct yellow paint along with the other necessary reducers/hardeners, etc. One of the front fenders had some previous repairs, so I searched for replacement. I located a perfect NOS fender that I will include along with some other parts I gathered over the years from ebay and swap meets. I also bought some new steel rims which will be included also.

The car will need a simple straightforward restoration. If you prefer, it could also make a fun driver with just a quick repaint and some TLC. The title was lost, so the car will be sold using a bill of sale. It has been in storage since 2001, so it would be off the DMV computer. I’d take $5500 cash, or may consider an interesting trade for a classic car or motorcycle. I would really like to find a decent ’63 Ford Falcon (Futura or Sprint) 2 door coupe (Must be a V8 & 4 speed).

1948 Jeepster Pennsylvania eBay

• CATEGORIES: Jeepster • TAGS: .

Mark spotted this project.  As Mark noted, this appears perfect for those bondo-challenged rebuilders among us.

“I have a nice 1948 Willys Jeepster project up for auction. The owner of this car had me store it for him over 3 years ago and I haven’t heard a word from him since. By now the storage fees out way the value of the car so the car now belongs to me and is for sale. There is no title for this car due to this situation and that’s why its listed in this section. NOW THE GOOD.  The car was painted at a local car dealership and then moved into my climate controlled shop and has been here since, just like you see it. It looks like it was painted yesterday. Body is great,  all of the yellow and black painted parts seen in pics are ready to reinstall. The frame was stripped and repainted black when the body was done.  A great car to start putting back together. Other parts include the engine, radiator, convertible top frame, seats, moldings, glass, tons of small parts, etc. We were told it was all there when it arrived. Not being an expert, it’s hard for me to say. I cannot find a VIN number, frame numbers etc,  but all seems to be original as we were told by the last owner. The interior of the body is still in need or restoration. the dash was stripped and primed inside. Under the cowl is super clean. The underbody around the floor pans has not been painted but has been mostly sanded clean. I believe a RH rear fender was replaced or worked at one time due to “new” looking exposed metal in the inner wheel well. I would be glad to answer any questions if I can. Other pics also availible.  Feel free to ask. Car is also availible for personal inspection in my shop Thanks!”

Here’s a fun Jeepster.

“1950 Willys Jeepster, title is a 46. This is a quick little car, that runs great, steers and stops like it should. No frills just a cool little drop top driver. I bought it as a basket case and replaced or rebuilt pretty much the entire car. This car is made to drive, no bull, just you the road and a V8 growl out the back from three inch pipes.

BODY & INTERIOR
New top, including wood bows, new side curtains, new upholstery, custom engine turned stainless instrument panel with new gauges and switches, new wiring harness, custom welded in floor pans, four seat belts.

Jeepster Prototypes

• CATEGORIES: Features, Jeepster

I was doing some research on GBW’s FC 170s when stumbled upon several Jeepster prototypes listed at the American Jeepster Club along with some other Jeepster specific information.  Below I reference 3 prototypes found on the history page.  Please visit the American Jeepster Club’s ‘Willys-Overland Jeepster History’ page to learn more.  The fourth image is a 1979 Jeepster Prototype press release I found at offroaders.com — it seems to me it was a good idea NOT to develop this one.

This Jeepster looks better than new!

“This 1949 Jeepster just recieved a frame off restoration to original specs. All parts have either been rebuilt, replaced, refurbished or new. The L-134 engine and overdrive have been rebuilt.There is no rust anywhere, as all damaged panels were replaced. The car is technically correct except for the steering wheel (is a 1950 model). The top cover and wood frames are all new. The tires are new Cokers and have approximately 50 miles on them. All the glass and rubber moldings are new. It has the correct Dupont Fiesta yellow color, interior is vinyl. The original mileage before the restoration is unknown. This is not a 100 point car but close.
