1948 Jeepster Fort Lauderdale, Fl eBay

• CATEGORIES: Jeepster • TAGS: , , This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

Here’s a great looking Jeepster.

“The car runs very well, and its easy to drive. The “3 on the tree” manual transmission shifts properly. Whether you’re heading to Margaritaville at 5 o’clock, or just out for a pleasure drive on a nice ragtop day, you’ll have no worries.

As far as condition, its good. The body is straight and the interior is in very, very good shape. The convertible top is also in very good shape, but it does not latch properly at the front. This isn’t ready to be a show car, but its a nice driver. We don’t know the actual mileage on the vehicle, but we’re betting its seen more smiles than miles.

It does have an AM/FM/Cassette radio, but the car doesn’t have a lot of bells and whistles…oh wait…there IS a whistle: the “sexy girl” whistle sounds when you push a button on the dash.

(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

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 …”

1948 Jeepster Pennsylvania eBay

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 This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

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.
