1951 Jeepster Canadensis, PA **Status Unknown**

• CATEGORIES: Jeepster • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: This was on eBay. **Status Unknown**

“Selling a very restorable 51 Jeepster. This vehicle has been in storage for many years. The gas tank was removed before storage and is clean and dry. I did have this Jeep running off of a gas can and it runs well and holds good oil preasure and does not overheat. It does have an overdrive transmission. As you can see in the pictures it will need to be restored but is complete.

The floors on the driver’s front, right front, and right rear were repaired and welded in. I have removed the seats so you can see what the floor looks like through out the entire vehicle. The frame and the rest of the undercarriage are in good shape. It has been repainted but does not appear to have any rust bubbles or filler poping out. The right rear fender will need some work as it looks to have been bent and pulled back.

1948 Jeepster Jupiter, FL Status Unknown

• CATEGORIES: Jeepster • TAGS: , .

UPDATE:  This was last listed December 31, 2012 for $18500 on ebay

I like the paint scheme on this one.

“This beautiful 1948 Willys Overland Jeepster drives like a dream machine from yesteryear. She is a three-speed around town show off with overdrive for the highway cruises. Her Arizona heritage has kept her young and, with the incredible showroom paint, she is truly the best car you will ever still consider a driver.

Is she flawless? What girl is? She has two small repairs to her newly treated vinyl ( shown still uncolored – since almost invisible ). One chrome side step has a flake or two in the chrome. Paint on steering wheel logo center faded ( thought better to not restore ). Other than that…

She is all original except the addition of a 12 volt alternator, electric fuel pump (original still attached) and gas tank. Inside, look at the knock out beautiful white interior, drop top, windows and boot. Also, the new stereo. Correct and original chrome inside and out as well as the right steering wheel and badges. Newly rebuilt engine and overhauled brakes plus correct wheels with brand new beauty rings and hubcaps.

There are no surprises with this car. She is not a frame-off concourse competition winner, but instead an incredibly well preserved forever-keeper car with no disappointments. Low reserve compared to market.”

2 Jeepster Top Bows Little Canada, MN $50/per

I imagine these are hard to find?

” I have two sets of top bows for a 1949-51 Willys Jeepster. These are both complete but they need the shaped wood pieces repaired or replaced (believe they are available aftermarket). Both are in good shape otherwise. Asking $50 per set but would sell both sets for $75. Please call 651-484-8021 for additional information.”

Jeepsters and the Sunkist Lady

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features, Jeepster


The Sunkist Lady was an Aeronca 15AC Sedan airplane flown by Dick Riedel and Bill Barris used to set a world-record for endurance flight.  They spent a total of 1008 hours and 2 minutes aboard the airplane, ending their flight in April of 1949. Unfortunately for them, their record was broken six months later.

What makes this relevant for jeep fans was that to keep the plan in the air, the crew used Jeepsters borrowed from local dealers to race down the airport runway so the crew could hand fuel and food to the two pilots.

Thanks to Colin for forwarding the story!

Here is a link to a story and a video about the flight (124 MB): http://www.cityoffullerton.com/depts/airport/the_sunkist_lady.asp

Here is a second article:  http://vintageairphotos.blogspot.com/2012/03/saga-of-sunkist-lady.html. The picture below is from that article.

Here’s another nice looking Jeepster from Jeepster Jim.

“Really nice Jeepster that does not need Restoration. The top is ok and the interior is nice. It has the side curtains and runs and drives great, including the overdrive. It has new wheels and tires and comes with an original, working factory heater. The chrome is in good condition and the lights and the horn also work. I’d feel comfortable driving this car anywhere.”

1949 Jeepster Hadley, MA $10,900

• CATEGORIES: Jeepster • TAGS: , .

This looks like a time machine that would take me back to the 1950s.

”  Representing the perfect car for the Islands, Beach house, or just traveling on the coastal roads, this 1949 Willy’s Jeepster is both unique and fun.
Powered by a overhead valve four cylinder engine, coupled to a three speed manual transmission with overdrive, it is quite spry and cruises nicely at highway speeds.
Limited numbers of this year were produced, resulting in their somewhat scarcity and adding to their collectibility.
Representing a older restoration with very nice seating, its a driver quality car. Everything works and the engine and transmission perform flawlessly with no unusual noises or smoke. Additionally it is fitted with a new convertible top and boot. Approximately 70K miles.
Certainly a great vintage, classic, antique and collectible car to own and drive. Additionally a great investment car.
Fully serviced with fresh oils, new battery etc…
Now considered a vintage, antique, and collectors car.
Clear title in hand, and ready for its new owner, you may contact Chris at 413-575-8600 for further information.
I will call you back on receipt of your message. ”

1948 Jeepster Salem, OR **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Jeepster

UPDATE: Was $7500. **SOLD**

“1948 Willys Jeepster Convertible. It has the L-134 engine (flathead) and has the flat front end. It also has side steps, deluxe steering wheel (full circle chrome ring) and the T badge up front. It was built in the combined plane around the middle of 1948, along side of the 48 wagons. The title shows 1949. That means it sold it 1949, but was manufactured in 1948. It was a gift from my grandfather and has been sitting in storage for almost 30 years. There are no missing parts and is in good shape on the outside and on the interior. It needs to be in the hands of someone who is interested in doing the mechanical work to get it running again.”
