1949 Jeepster Cleburne, TX eBay

• CATEGORIES: Jeepster • TAGS: , .

This is unrestored.

Original 1949 Jeepster — NOT restored, but no dings, no rust. The interior is clean. The previous owner replaced the head gasket on the original 134 c. i. flathead engine and I replaced the six-volt battery, all belts, hoses, and radiator and did an oil change — all less than six months ago. The top frame and original side curtain frames are fine, but the top needs new fabric and both it and the side curtains need new plastic for the windows. The brake shoes all are at about 75%, but the I can’t open the master cylinder so I don’t know if the lines are bad or the master cylinder might be, but in either case the brakes DO NOT work.  I have priced a master cylinder online at $69.  The three-speed transmission with overdrive and clutch are strong, but the synchro appears to be bad. Sometimes it will go into gear just fine, other times it grinds.  I spoke with a Jeepster guy in Florida who says he will do a complete transmission rebuild for $295 plus shipping.  I have driven the Jeepster around my property (without the brakes) and the steering seems fine.  It accelerates well, does not smoke (except when first started for about 30 seconds if it’s been sitting for several weeks) and doesn’t make any strange sounds.  I was going to do a full restoration on it, but too many projects are ahead of it in line.  The only damage I have seen is a hole about 2 inches in diameter on the side of the driver seat (shown in photos), a piece chipped off the right side rear seat step (shown in photos), and the hubcap on the spare tire has a crack in it . . . more on eBay”

1951 Jeepster Gilroy, Ca $24,900

• CATEGORIES: Jeepster • TAGS: , .

That is one of the cleanest heads I’ve ever seen in a jeep.

“This is a stunning example of a1951 “Willys-Jeepster”. Almost impossible to find with only 19,131 produced from 1948-1951 and ONLY 5,845 from 1950-1951. The Jeepster is a two-wheel-drive convertible designed by Brooks Stevens. Stevens and Willys knew that returning World War II GIs would scoop up these fun-loving drop-tops as soon as they rolled off the assembly line, they are perhaps one of the most interesting vehicles in the storied off-road maker’s past: a sporty automobile rather than an off-road vehicle, this open-bodied car very rare and highly collectable, also it has secured a spot in history as the last true phaeton offered by a major domestic automaker. This Jeepster has a very recent extensive restoration only about 500 miles. The (new)paint and body are in excellent shape with proper lines and gaps. New chrome, new wiring, new rubber, new glass you get the idea. Only 84,954 original miles. Powered by the original Lighting flathead 6 cylinder which is a cast-iron 148.5-cu.in. block featuring a 3- x 3.50-inch bore and stroke, four mains and solid lifters, all working together to develop 72hp at 4,000 rpm with 6.42:1 compression(ONLY AVAILABLE IN THE 1951). Driven by its original 3-speed manual transmission with OVERDRIVE, ZERO RUST ZERO RUST REPAIR, up graded to a 12 volt system, period correct bias belted 3 inch White walls, original Willys hub caps and trim rings, original Willys steering wheel and factory gauges,( oil, temp. and water replaced with upgraded aftermarket gauges), new interior, original(Red) interior is in excellent condition and is included with the sale, new top, original side windows, rear steps, lots of restoration receipts, even touch up-paint. This super-cool ride will go 60-70 miles an hour on the freeway all day long. Very dependable, total blast to drive. Now on display at the home of “over the top cars” CHECKERED FLAG CLASSICS 7598 MONTEREY ST GILROY CA. 408-847-8788. Sold as-is California buyers are responsible for sales tax and license fees.
