“Unique opportunity to restore a 1950 Willy’s Jeepster. Almost all, if not all, the parts are there with many duplicates. Includes two engines and transmissions – one is the original 6 cylinder and the other is a 1953 6 cylinder. I just finished restoring one and have decided not to tackle another, so this is your opportunity. Selling as a package only, I won’t separate for parts.

Cash sales only. You will need to pick up the vehicle. Sorry, no shipment or delivery. I won’t accept PayPal or other electronic payments.”

WANTED: 1949 Jeepster Vermont .. Anyone Know Where it Is?

• CATEGORIES: Jeepster • TAGS: .

UPDATE II: Amy is wondering if anyone knows where this Jeepster is? It was last for sale in  Vermont in November of 2018 …

Amy wrote, “It belonged to my grandfather. I was unable to buy it when he passed and to see it for sale again, it would mean the world to me to know where and if I can get it back. I spent my summers working on and going for drives in this car. It was my grandfather’s pride and joy. Please any information you have is appreciated.”

“1949 Willys Jeepster and good drivable condition. Three (3) speed on the column with electric overdrive. Fun weekend vehicle for the whole family, including the dog. The Jeepster is an automobile originally produced by Willys-Overland Motors from 1948 to 1950.[3] It was developed in hopes of filling a gap in the company’s product line, crossing over from their “utilitarian” proto SUVs and trucks to the passenger automobile market. The basic model included numerous deluxe features and interior fittings in addition to a high level of standard equipment that cost extra on other automobiles. A total of almost 20,000 were manufactured.”
