1946? Ford? Jeepster West Valley City, Ut **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Features, Jeepster, Unusual

UPDATE: Bob from Ohio bought this.  I can’t wait to hear more about it.  Was listed at $1000.

Bob forwarded this to me via the CJ-2A Page. It’s an odd duck. I am thinking it it is a shortened Jeepster on a CJ frame.

“46 Ford Jeepster a one of a kid. Needs a lot of work but has a lot of potential. I bought the car 16 years ago and haven’t had the time or money to get it restored. It has some transmission problems and other minor problems, dead battery, etc. Has new tires. I need to sell it as soon as possible and the price is negotiable..”

1948 Jeepster-rod Show Low, Az **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Jeep Rods, Jeepster, Unusual

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was Make Offer

It sounds like a really unique project, but it is still a project.

“You have to see this in person – photos don’t do it…Photos are as it came out of the paint shop…

You’re driving this down the street – it grabs the attention of EVERY single person it slips by…this is a customized 1948 Willys Overland open top roadster sitting on a custommade 2×3 mild steel box frame, built by a winning race car engineer to accommodate all the acroutrements of a donor car, a Nixxan 300ZX drive train, wiring harness, digital dash, accessories, and electronics.
I have nearly everything to complete this project (black interior fabrics, interior panels ready to cover, console, mirrors, power seats, etc etc etc). Low, and compact (only 13 feet long!) and light. Should do 150-160 mph (donor car was capable of that) and was designed to corner like an IROC Z car according to the chassis designer (rack and pinion steering, coilover shocks all around, 100% adjustable suspension, urethane bushings used throughout). Good looking 3.0 litre V-6, (looks like v-8) injected and turbocharged (225 hp, 195 ft lbs of torque – only 19,000 miles on the donor vehicle). Includes entire wiring harness, digital dash, factory stereo system with subwoofer amp and 12 speakers, most everything I can think of with the exception of driveshaft (I have the original with u-joints – just needs tube)
5 speed trans, power assist disc brakes and steering,ARE wheels, tongue and groove oak for rear bed, etc etc etc. Way too many features to list…this was a very high tech donor car).

This project is about 70-75% complete – the tough stuff is done, and everything that has been done thus far has been done right. The body is nearly flawless and has NO BONDO – all steel, and smooth as a baby’s butt over the entire car. New Corvette yellow…Nothing like it ANYWHERE ON EARTH…My 20 year effort is your gain.”

1950 Jeepster & Parts Port Huron, Mi eBay

• CATEGORIES: Jeepster

There appear to be lots and lots of jeepster parts.

“I have a 1950 Willys  Jeepster restoration project that is in process and unfortunately can not be completed by me at this time. There are a lot of parts that are included in the sale of this vehicle. Almost two complete vehicles. There are 2 body’s or tubs ( one from AZ ), 4 hoods, 2 sets of fenders, 4 cowls, 2 sets of wheels, one f4 inline four cylinder motor, one 3-speed manual transmission with optional overdrive, 2 frames, 1 compete freshly rebuilt rear axle assembly (all new bearings and seals), 4 doors, 3 top frames, 2 front suspension , 3 sets of seat frames, 3 steering columns, front and rear cowls, spare tire mounts & belly pans, 3 windshield frames, front and rear bumper assembly, 7 door vent window frames, 3 fuel tanks, lots of chrome trim, step pads, plus over 25 boxes of items from gauges, radios, heater boxes,  lights and much much more. All of these items are used. There are parts from both modules the 49 and the 50. Like on the one tub from AZ is a 49 with the dash being the only difference and there are two 1949 hoods that are flat across the front and a molding down the center and 2 cowls that are straight across the front and not v out in the center.

Also included is over  $1500.00 new in the box parts from Kaiser Willys auto supply . A complete master brake kit ( brake-sw2 ), complete suspension kit ( suspension-9 ), plastic fuel tank ( mts-0018a ), fuel sending unit (914848), king pins ( 801580).

I had the frame sandblasted, painted and was starting to assemble the suspension and rear axle. The frame is painted with por 15 and had only 2 small spots that needed to be repaired do to a/m exhaust brackets. There is one complete set of body panels that has been media blasted.

This restoration was being completed with the best of parts and everything was being inspected so the repairs would be top of the line, so that we would have many years of enjoying the vehicle with no other repairs being necessaries after completion.
The engine does have the oil pan and valve covers removed and the pistons and cylinder walls are in like newly rebuilt condition. The clutch and slave cylinder are also in like new condition. I can not say when these items were rebuilt or replaced by the prior owner. The vehicle did run and drive before the start of this project in aug of 09. It still has the 6 volt generator system.

You could very easy build 2 vehicles ( with the addition of a few parts of your own i.e. motor and trans ) with the parts that are included in this sale plus have many left over.

The photos of the white Jeepster are from before we started the tear down. Right now I would guess it would take two car trailer plus a pickup bed to haul everything away.

I have over 100 photos of the vehicle at different steps of the restoration. Copy’s can be included with the sale if you would like. If there is any one item you would like me to verify the condition of, please email me.

The vehicle is in Port Huron ,MI 48060 and you are more then welcome to come and inspect it at anytime or email me with any questions you have.”
